Birds of Spring

"Ah, warm water bath!" . . . .

“Ah, warm water for my bath!” . . . .

This Robin is having a grand time catching a quick bath in the heated water bowl.  It’s been a long winter, and chances are there has not been another “warm bath” in recent weeks.

"splish splash, I am taking a bath!" . . . .

“splish splash, taking a bath!” . . . .

This energetic bird will soon drain the bathtub at this rate!

"This is too much fun - think I'll go for another dip!" . . . .

“This is too much fun – think I’ll go for another dip!” . . . .

A recent visitor to the feeder varies from the typical House Finch with red markings that can be seen most of the winter.  We identified this little finch (seen below) as a Redpoll, likely a male with his pink breast and bright red cap.

"A skillet filled with vittles!" . . . .

“A skillet filled with vittles!” . . . .

Sparrows are constant companions throughout the winter and greet me every morning from the branches of a pine tree outside the kitchen window.

"Bird brunch!" . . . .

“Bird brunch!” . . . .
