Birds of Spring

Birding report: In the past 24 hours,

At the suet feeder: Black Capped Chickadees, White-Breasted Nuthatch, Downy Woodpecker (female)

At the thistle feeder: Goldfinches!

Eating thistle off the deck: Juncos, lots of Juncos! House Finches (male and female)

And sitting on the post of the new bluebird house? Yep, a very fluffed out Eastern Bluebird (male, I'm pretty sure).

And around: American Robins, Crows.

I think it's spring! (But dang, it's cold!)

Edited to add: a Song Sparrow on the suet feeder, and weirdly, one of the Juncoes has decided it likes the suet, too, and managed to stay there long enough for a snack.

ps. Blogger's slow like anything lately. Are other folks having issues, too? (Loading to post, loading blogs, slow all around.)
