Bird Chirping Weather

Spring eventually does get here.

House sparrow getting ready
Screech owl soaking up the sun
At least one eye of spring is upon us
Where the wood duck boys are
Hooded mergansers know where the girls are
Hi there, heron
Bath time for Birdies

Perfect End to Project FeederWatch

Croton Point Park never gets tiring.  Project FeederWatch at Croton Nature Center is always entertaining.  One more day to go, but I had to put these up today.   The birds just sit close now as they wait for me to fill the feeders.
