Yesterdays Birds (May 4)

What a great day for yard birds!  Must have been the rainy weather that blew in mid afternoon!

A female Purple Finch.

Quite a few White-Throated Sparrows, today was the first day for them in the yard, and they came in numbers!  At least a dozen, which is a pretty big number for my little urban yard!

This one had had a quick bath and was preening.  I liked the flared wings.

A very fast-moving Chickadee!

A Lincolns Sparrow!  I've had them earlier in previous years, but they are usually behind the White-Throated Sparrows!  So this one must have gotten an early start!

And for good measure, a male House Sparrow.
