Birds of May

I love watching our birds in May, because there are always those I don’t see at other times of the year. Some are migrating, others come to the feeders more frequently because they are feeding babies.

I especially enjoyed watching them one day when it rained.

Female finch – I think it’s a purple finch.

Wet blue jay

I’m note even sure what this wet, bedraggled bird is – maybe a mocking bird.

But, the sun will always come out – maybe tomorrow – and everyone is dry again.

Oh, squirrel, I have ground feeders for you – why don’t you stay there.

Imagine my delight to see an indigo bunting and a rose-breasted grosbeak at the same time.

I think they just migrate through our area, because I only see them in May.

Oh, the delights of bird-watching in May.
