Oh trust me I have than many out there all the time! And with the squirrels eating off some of the perches it can get quite noisy out there. I did see a chickadee out there and we don't normally have them. And I came around the corner and scared them..there must have been a hundred..and I live in town! I'm kind of new to the bird watching but have a friend that I tell her what it looks like and she knows and tells me. I know my goldfinches and not sure, but little house wrens with read heads, I have red headed woodpeckers and cardinals, and sparrows..oh and in the winter the dark gray on top and lighter gray on the bottom..when they go the robins start to come! My son on his way into town saw many many Eagles..hmmm wonder if that means they are headed back to where they are from and spring is around the corner. I have so much to learn about!

Well, had a hard morning packing my sons apartment, he broke his ankle and is now living with me until he heals..ugh.. I like my alone time..but the good news is, when his brother came to help me move the three big things, he took him home with him for a few days! I'm soooo glad..its only been a week since he came home, but I've done nothing but run since then. A couple of days rest will be great! I wish I felt like walking while I can, before the next snow storm hits..OH well, I'll take a nap..then think about walking some more. I have nearly 5 miles just running around packing and loading and unloading the car! Whew!! Ok..talk to you later..I'll be happy to learn from all the new friends I've found! emoticon

The birds seem to be more active and there are larger groups of them. Over the winter they usually come alone, or I'll have 1-2 birds at a feeder. This past week there can be 3 or 4 different kinds of birds at the feeders at the same time, they seem more aggressive and we can have as many as 20-30 birds in our back yard at a time. I normally have 9 feeders going on my 1 acre, but this winter has taken it's toll, so I have to get out and get a few more. When early spring hits the red winged black birds are usually the first to arrive, sometimes as early as March7-9th. More typically the 15th. I check every year because the first time I here their trill I am elated!

I just found it too! I'm excited to hear from the team. I guess I need to know..how are your birds being different that you know that spring is coming? I still have the same birds and the squirrels have eaten off my perches on my feeders this winter..I will have to invest in metal feeders in the future!

Where are you located? I'm in Iowa

I'm glad to find this team. I love bird watching and I can tell spring is getting closer just by watching the birds at the feeders.
