I haven't been writing about the birds lately but they have been a constant source of enjoyment to me, and I have been overjoyed as each and every one returned, and am eagerly anticipating the arrival of the indigo bunting again. The robins seemed to be here early, and I missed blogging when they first arrived. The chickadees, titmice, and juncos are regulars at the feeder still (although for a while over the winter it seemed to be only the chickadees). I have heard the blue jays, but not seen them, and seen the cardinals in others' yards, but not ours. I can hear the killdeers across the street, and this morning the most melodious singing got me out of bed in time to see the male goldfinch take a nip of seed and fly away. And perhaps the most noticeable of all, I can now see the mourning doves under the feeder again, because they no longer blend into the ground. The grass is green!
