This morning the first YB Sapsucker flew in and explored all his favorite trees in our yard. A Raven flew low circling overhead -- looking for something? I found a Song Sparrow sitting on a stump, singing very very quietly to himself, practicing his song. As I waited, he grew more confident and louder, but not full throated yet. There have been lots of his family around to learn from. The one 'tame' female Redpoll I mentioned earlier is still around. She looks very fat and bloated -- even in warm sunshine on warmer days this week. Could this be some sickness (-- or is she ready to lay eggs!) ? I searched all around for a Fox Sparrow, but no luck.
