I was at the river over the weekend and heard a Barred Owl! I saw a ton of osprey, laughing gulls and another type of gull I didn't know. I need to brush up on my water birds. I looked for eagles but I never saw any.

a little male hummer sneaked in and got first call on the fresh feeder before the older male found out.

We have lots of parkland and open space where walk so I might be telling you about the feral turkeys or the peacocks. I have to transfer my pictures from my phone to here so I can show you the turkeys when the males are doing their " dancing?"

I'm jealous. I haven't seen bald eagles in a few years.
The latest spring arrivals this past week were the red wing black birds and the grackles. And about 30 turkeys came 2 weeks ago too. that's the most I've ever seen at one time. kim

First visit from a male Baltimore oriole yesterday and today. I put out the oriole feeder and some oranges and he really liked the oranges. Still hasn't sampled the oriole feeder yet. Seems a little timid. I also bought some orange jelly and he's eating that now. Cool! First time I've ever seen one!
Another good day for gardening. Kim

We always see them from a distance in a field or at the top of our lawn usually in a small flock. That's the first time I've seen a wild one so close. She was very nervous but kept eating the corn. I wonder if she has a nest nearby. I was surprised to see her by herself. That's what made me think she might be nesting. kim

A small hawk or falcon swooped over my head on my walk yesterday! So cool! In terms of identifying it, really all I noticed was that it was a raptor and had the brown and white spotted undersides.

I've lived in MN my whole life, Kim, and we have lots of turkeys too, but I never saw them until two years ago. They are so big, how could I have missed seeing them before?

emoticon here and very cold. But I fed the birds and they are quite happily chirping around in the rain, eating. A female turkey dropped by my feeding area yesterday and had some corn and she stopped by again this morning right after I put the corn out. I wonder if she was watching me. She just appeared out of the brush both days. Pretty cool to see. Tracy took some pics of her so I will upload them later. kim

2 red tailed hawks came to visit this morning very close to my feeders. They grabbed a mouse or a chipmunk. I couldn't tell which. Stayed for about 5 minutes. One was huge, one was quite small. Male and female I suspect. kim

That's really cool Anya. I saw an Eastern Towhee today and I've had some cowbirds and grackles visit my feeders the past 2 weekends. Amazing to me every time I see a new bird I've never seen before. We used to see herons on the river up by our camp. Not sure what kind though. I think it was white. or maybe blue. I'll pay more attention now that I know more about birds. kim

I might have seen a Green Heron this morning or possibly the Pileated Woodpecker that's been hanging around. I basically saw it in silhouette as it was flying by, so I saw that it was crested. I didn't see any white markings that I would have expected if it was the Pileated. It had a clump of long dried grass in it's bill.

You can say that again. The finch feeders need filled up almost every day and that stuff is expensive. I noticed they spilled a lot on the ground but it looks like they also get down there and clean the ground up some too. When there's a whole flock of them anyway.
We got snow overnight so I just have the regular visitors. kim

I have so many. My regulars include goldfinches, robins, juncos, chickadees, red bellied woodpeckers, downy woodpeckers, doves, sparrows, cardinals, blue jays, titmice, nuthatches, a few crows, starlings, lots of squirrels, chipmunks, brown creepers, and red wing blackbirds. We also regularly see wild turkeys but they don't come to the lower yard where my feeders are. Also saw a house finch a few times. Can't wait for the hummers. They should be coming back this week or next. I had my hummingbird feeder out but the sugar water froze so I brought it in for a few days. I'll put it back out in a day or 2.

I like to redecorate my page often!

Saw a turkey last week, and lots of migrating songbirds this week. I have to start keeping my eye on the feeder as the birdfeed is disappearing faster!

Thanks, Ginger!

I saw some Canada Geese heading north this week! And my sparrows came back, or this is a new bunch on the move too. Plus the cardinals and chickadees were very talkative this week.

Maybe they are on the move. I think I saw a Junco, which is only in our area when they migrate, and some Robins have arrived. I think there's hope that spring is on its way!

Saw the Pileated Woodpecker again this weekend on my walk in the neighborhood.

Just saw a Pileated Woodpecker on the telephone pole in my neighbors backyard! Very unusual, since I am in the heart of suburbia. We used to see these alot when I was growing up. We lived in an area that was not quite the country, but very woodsy.

Great sight to see Anya. The Scrub Jay came down for his food. Had a couple of Doves in the yard eating with the House Finch, and Sparrows. Yesterday I saw a Hummingbird.

A dog wags his tail with his heart.

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.

We saw a red-tail hawk and a pair of bald eagles at Long Lake on sunday. The pair of eagles nest at Round Lake where I used to work, so I see them alot, but it never gets old!
