April 8-9

Yet another male Northern Cardinal A second visit from a Chipping Sparrow to the feeder This Hermit Thrush made several tries to land on the suet feeder in the front yard without success, but did give the place a thorough look-see, landed on the ground, and again looked the place over.


This Tufted Titmouse was determined to elude me, looking right, then left, then looking to the rear, then taking the big leap.
