Swainson's Thrush. There have been a bunch of them scratching and digging around in the lawn and the dry leaves in the gardens. This one crashed into the window and was a wee bit stunned, so I went out and took a picture before the headache wore off and he flew away.
Nuthatch. He stays with us all year round, but he seems to be extra busy finding more bugs and things on the tree bark. Nuthatches don't seem to be bothered by people walking around snapping pictures close by.
Blackheaded Grosbeak and he dominates the feeder when he shows up. I can't wait to see who else shows up these next few days.
Statistics: 2.5" of rain over the weekend through Monday morning. Stock ponds and reservoirs are filling up. It's a good beginning. I mowed the grass today too.
What is a weed?
A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.
