I wouldn't be offended any if you'd rather pack up and stay in something of your own.

That is actually kind of cool--minus the deer head.

I'll be home the next few weeks recovering from surgery (not in the plan, but ended up necessary, and I got good news and will be fine). I am NOT a patient patient. Luckily for me, my favorite squirrel survived the winter and is visiting regularly. (Yes, those are daffodils. Winters here are so gray that I can't resist early-spring color.)

I'm so glad everything worked out well for you.
When it's raining or when your bod needs a bit of rest, That's when you really appreciate the feeders and florals you've added within viewing distance from the home.

The Red-wing blackbirds have arrived here just a few days ago. I love their "look at me" call.
It's nice to see the one we've been watching for the past three years has also made his return.
He is easily recognize because of a couple of tipped up wing feathers more than likely due to some sort of damage in the past to grow in as they do.

Just how many years does a red-wing live?

My winter birds are all still here. Is it just me, or is 4/6 really late for the migrants to be leaving? I still have juncos, pine siskins, and yellow rumped warblers. Those siskins are costing me a mint in birdseed, and I wish they would get on their way north! Being on short rations while I was away didn't encourage them to leave, however.

Being away makes birds braver. I had two American crows dining on my rail feeder this afternoon, though when they saw me in the house they left. And a female blue jay earlier, which I hadn't seen all winter.

Birds are coming back here but it has been brutally cold for March/April. We are noticing a pickup in songbirds in the parks this past week, but the doves have not yet gotten serious about nestbuilding on my balcony. Dees checked out the new birdhouse but went back into hiding again. Weather forecast is warmer but cloudy... I would not be surprised your migratory birdies are still around.

We still have juncos--later than usual, it seems. At the same time, the grackles are back.

Spring seems late this year.

I have a small, mixed flock of red winged blackbirds and grackles that eat a lot, but I'm thrilled to have the around.

...tell me, how do you tell the females from the males in bluejays?
