We have a sparrow and we use to listen them on daily bases. We use to keep millet and feed them on daily bases. It feels really good to see them.

First time this year, I saw two Eastern Bluebirds in the yard, fighting over the birdhouses early this morning!

Won't be long now and the yard will be busy with all the different birds!

The most active are the Tree Swallows, but they aren't here just yet!

UPDATE:  10:40AM Just looked out around the yard and I saw one male Tree Swallow fighting with the Bluebirds over the birdhouses!

I saw 4 blue birds this morning at once, but this guy was alone this afternoon. First time I saw them this year and first time I have seen them here in Royalton. I know neighbours have bird boxes up the road, but never asked if they ever have any.










The tree swallows have been here a week or so and have not gone to the boxes much. I saw 6 this afternoon flying around the church and around the fields.

The farm next to me was leased for hunting a few years ago.  They released hundreds of quail and put feeders up for them.  The game warden got wind of it and issued them a citation for feeding game birds and shut them down.  The hunters left, and they left the feeders.  I brought one home, modified it somewhat and loaded it with cracked corn.  It's in my yard and the quail found it and put on a show for me every day.  They are really comical.  Gary

Taking a break in the refuge of a white birch a few feet away from the nest box. :)

I've observed them quite bit this spring. They will perch quite a while if not disturbed. I've seen them hang out in my yellow birch plantation at the far end of the house lot, they like the edge trees. They'll perch and 'talk' to one another quite a bit. They also like to sit on my fence posts a lot that I use in the raspberry rows. Most any tree in the yard they are quite content to sit a spell. Their little eyes can sure spot a bug from quite a distant. I'll see one take a dive and back onto his perch with a bug. :)

Winter is when we get more birds here in town.  They aren't  really migrating  but they come down from the forest around the Mt and move onto the town gardens where there is more foos and less snow. Starting to see the Tui staking our their favourite trees already. Seeing 20 of the them squabbling over a flowering cherry in the spring is interesting 😁 Will break out the zoom lens and geg some pics soon.

   Wow! Piliated woodpeckers are one of my favorite birds. Never saw 3 on a tree like that. Very rare photo IMHO and a very good catch. We have lots of them here and they must be nesting close to the house as we hear them calling every day, especially just before dark. We call them Wood hens here.

WOW!! Nice picture. Last time I tried that I got dizzy from circling the tree to get a picture of it. ;D
Baltimore Orioles are back,been here a couple weeks. Tried a different type of feeder. We tried the liquid one years ago,that wa a waste of money. We use to just put out oranges,sliced in half. This year I have a hanger with a small glass cup for jelly and a place to put a sliced orange. They ignore the orange and go for the grape jelly. Most time we only see for a couple weeks,male and females are there quite often. Seen 3 at one time.

Chuck, they line up there because of the suet feeders you can't see in this picture that is on the deck about ten feet from the tree.
