Here are some pics I took last week of some of the birds on our deck feeders.   Male purple finch.   Red breasted nuthatch with the purple finch.   Male goldfinch.

Birds have been coming back to the feeders in the last week in abundance. And apparently an owl fed overnight on a little opossum and left me a present on the deck.    

Had a bunch of cedar waxwings, my 1st red breasted grosbeak, and a couple goldfinches in the last few days. No numbers of anything yet though. Also had a couple visits from this young lady. Smallest c

Saw Mourning Doves today. Lots of Juncos,  more Cardinals than in the winter months too. Mike, you need one of those one pump pellet guns. They’re great fun!

The goldeneyes are still around but woodies have been back for several days and today I saw blue wing teal.  I figure with that, it’s wide open on what ducks are back in central MN now.

 

Woodie boxes have been ready for about a month.  I plugged the hole in the garage wall the phoebes have been using for a nest the past few years.  Cool little birds but they don’t need to nest there.

I'd love to get another pellet gun. But with the jerk I have for a neighbor I best not. 😒

 

If they will call the cops on my other neighbor veered into his lawn mowing grass they'd definitely call them if I plinked a few birds with a pellet gun.🙄

Juncos all left a few days ago, I really like watching the little tykes. They sure hang in big groups. Must be getting close to oriole and hummingbird season.

Haven't seen juncos in a while either. Seeing a few yellow finches though. My tree swallows, barn swallows, whatever there called showed up yesterday.

 

Put the oriole and hummingbird feeders out yesterday.

I don’t know what birds start singing first but around 4am they seem to wake up.  Not sure why cuz I can’t even see a hint of sunrise at that time but I can about set a clock by it.

 

About 3:55 am the one type starts.  At 4 the cardinals start and about 4:10 the robins chirp in.  I was thinking the robins were first but I’ve been corrected.  They might be phoebes?
