      Singbirds.

      That's not a typo.

      At the end of the singbird (what most folks call songbird) feeding season, a few photos.

      This American Robin fed on sunflower seeds before insects became plentiful.


      A Pine Siskin.


      Up, down. It's all the same to a White-breasted Nuthatch.


      A Siskin peers from its watering hole, a can holder in a cooler lid.


      The Four-footed Black Booby in its habitat.


      We recently attended an outdoors and wildlife expo. This fellow exhibited this 38 year old(!) Golden Eagle and became quite emotional when describing its near death last year due to a Lyme infection. An experimental therapy brought it back from the brink.





      This American Goldfinch is transitioning from winter to summer plumage.


      A House Sparrow flies up to the suet feeder to finish the last bits left.


      Downy Woodpecker.


      I could have cropped several of these photos. Didn't because I prefer to see and share what I and the lens captures

      Wonderful pictures! I love watching my outdoor friends (and feeding them). While the bird seed and suet season is slowing, my hummingbird flock is hitting “feeding frenzy” season.

      These are great. Our feeders are busy today and the backyard is filled with song. OH and I both tried for some photos but between snow, rain and ice pellets falling we couldn't get great focus.

      Love seeing the bird returning. So far we've had robins, golden finches, wrens and doves. Oh, a jay showed up yesterday. Not a sign of them today with all the snow.

      I love listening to their morning song although with the warm weather we had a couple days ago they started early around 4am. We have blue jays, morning doves, cardinals, sparrows, nuthatch, red headed woodpecker, downey wood pecker, brown headed cow birds, cackels, red finch and black birds at our feeders. The pair of barn swallows are back again this year too. The cats like myself love to watch and listen to them. Plus I found a robins nest in my window well of all places, there are 4 eggs in there too. I am really surprised that she made the nest and had them so low to the ground.

      en5200, thank you! Our feeding season is changing from ‘really should’ to ‘supplemental and for my pleasure.’ Our hummingbirds won’t arrive for a few weeks. I’m curious, are you on the east or west side of the Cascades and which hummingbirds do you see?

      Snowshoe, I’m filling the feeders almost daily (partly because I want to, partly because bugs aren’t yet very plentiful). I love hearing all of the robins caroling at 5AM.

      POPTOP, we don’t see wrens. It’s interesting that although we are in chickadee country I haven’t seen any - for years!- until a solitary one showed up last weekend; it has foiled every attempt to photograph it.

      labsnewfy. you have quite a collection! We haven’t seen swallows or purple martins yet, maybe in a few weeks.

      Thank you Barry!

      EDITIED TO ADD: In Texas, mockingbirds might sing through much of a full moon lit night in springtime. While I miss that, robins caroling early in the morning is very pleasant!
