Yesterdays Birds (May 11)

Note:  looks like this post got stuck in the pipe!  A post about the true yesterday (May 12) coming shortly!

What a great bird day!  New arrivals were a White-Crowned Sparrow and about four Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks.  No Juncos today, and the American Tree Sparrow seems to have moved on.  Still fifteen or more White-Throated Sparrows.  Other sightings include Chipping Sparrow, Red Breasted Nuthatch, Tennessee Warbler, Purple Finch, Lincolns Sparrow, Orange Crowned Warbler and Clay-Colored Sparrow.

One of the male Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks.  He posed for me for a LONG time!

American Crow

Thought this was a neat shot, left to right:  Lincolns Sparrow, Clay-Colored Sparrow, Chipping Sparrow.  Sorry for the big pole in the way!

A closer look at the red fur.

And the Ovenbird, who was very cooperative!
