As spring progresses, more birds are beginning to appear. Baltimore oriole and white crowned sparrow are examples. Also had a visit from a one-legged red wing blackbird.

Thanks for looking.

Re: Local visitors

Great photos. That red-wing looks pretty rough, it may not survive long.

You keep nice company Mike, & looks like "proper" social distancing is being observed.  Very Nice!

Re: Local visitors

I call White-crowned sparrows, the crowning glory of sparrows - and yours's captured that glory - as common as they can be at times, they are one of my favorite birds. All are of course wonderful images.

I particularly like the blue-jay's expression, and of course the stunning colors of the oriole. Wonder if he knows just how jaw-dropping beautiful he is? Well done Mike.
