1 b&w warbler, 2 turkeys, 1 red-tail…

Nest in the Physocarpus DID I MENTION THAT I COUNT BIRDS? (…4 tree swallows, 2 pileated, 5 turkey vultures, 4 bluebirds…no partridge in a pear tree but close. I could go on and on.) Everybody’s returning as fast as the plants are blooming: warblers, catbirds, hummingbirds are all here, with voices (and nests) galore. Will you start counting birds, please, too?

    Hi, Margaret! I’m still counting and I am loving all the activity at my feeders right now. Does an errant squirrel in the feeder count as well?! :-)

    I think this will be the motivation I needed to get some feeders up…I too have been seeing so many lately: woodpeckers, blackbirds, turkeys (though I think they’re mostly nesting now–the big groups of a few weeks ago have dissipated), a huge variety of finches, and on and on. Margaret, would you ever consider adding a “beginners” forum? I need one, and I’m sure I’m not alone…ok, off to build my straw bale-enclosed (thank you Eliot Coleman) compost pile behind the barn. Wish me luck…

    Paige,
    Great idea–a beginner’s forum. Now if I can just remember how to start a new forum…off to have a look at that control panel!
