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.
Male cardinal and rose-breasted grosbeak
Female red-bellied woodpecker
I especially enjoyed watching them one day when it rained.
Male house finch
A very wet chickadee
Male ruby-throated hummingbird
Female purple finch
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.
Mourning dove in the morning sunshine.
Female house sparrow
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.
