Thank you for the picture Ruth - anyone see any cool birds lately?

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on April 3, 2015 at 3:21pm

Robins get hungry in early Spring.

The only birds I've seen, that came to the stale cat kibble I left out, were starlings and crows. The last few days Robins have appeared.

Huge flocks of robins came into the neighborhood and stripped all the Mountain Ash berries from my tree and the ones across the street. Other than that, nothing new.

Anyone see any cool birds lately in their yards?

I have an old field guide that I used when the kids were small. I also use Bird Pictures and Songs of Eastern Washington available on the internet. I have to train my eyes to see quickly, the body size, wings, tail and head features. I'm not much good at remembering. I see the bird and get into the guide and forgot what I saw. I am getting better.

That is a wonderful video post Joan. Did you buy a field guide to help you? Sibley is a very good guide.

I moved back inside with my binoculars and watching birds at the feeders. Having trouble identifying what I am seeing. They are a bit different from the summer birds I see when I am out there with them.

Those pictures are lovely Ruth.

Anyone see any birds lately that they would like to share with us?
