Return Of More Spring Birds


It was noisy in our yard yesterday as we has at least 30 each of Redwing black birds Grackles and starlings in our yard at the feeders plus the other birds . I counted 10 different breeds all in our yard chowing down .

                                                       I took this video mainly for the sound  lol !


Sounds like a bird sanctuary in our yard


              With all these birds I get the opportunity to record or take lots of still photos ! Good thing I am a birder !

                   Despite the  winter storm we had  on Wed  , yesterday turned out to be quite the nice day . The sun was shining winds were calm sky was blue with not a cloud in it and all the birds and critters were happily pigging out and chasing each other !

            This squirrel looked like he was siting there rubbing his paws together like an evil critter

            planning his next evil  conniving move on the food  lol !

The sun has risen through the cloud this morning looking like the turn out of another nice day , temps are to climb to +6 and possible rain for this evening  . As I sit here typing I can  hear all the birds have already started breakfast lol !

Until next time my friends !

Nice to hear all the bird sounds. We haven't seen the red wings yet but had huge flocks of starlings.

The black birds will tell their friends.
We are back to just song birds after we stop feeding for a few days.

Nothing spells Spring louder than the chattering of the bird's!

You have the redwings back there already? Wow. I'm still watching and waiting to spy one. The Goldfinches came back this week after about a month's absence. I think they must have found another feeder while we were away and they found me again and brought their friends. Enjoy your backyard birds and have a nice weekend.

You can see it just looking at him. That squirrel is a schemer.

A lovely video Elaine, and great photos too. I love that sound and looks like Miggy was enjoying them as well. Neat effect of the ice on the screen.

Elaine from the looks of the yard visitors you did get out after the storm to fill the feeders. I do. Ot enjoy when the grackles and starlings come in great hordes and devour all the birdseed in such a short time. Lately, I have been rationing it so the smaller birds can still have some at late afternoon feeding time.
