This morning we were visited by a lone male Purple Finch at our feeders. No females.
In early spring, with freezing nights and warm days, we get some large maple-sap icicles on one red maple. From our kitchen we get to see the amusing spectacle of chickadees & titmouse(s) fluttering, hovering and sipping the drips from these popsicles. I should have been smart enough to photograph this a few days ago, now the nights are too warm. Nari Mistry, Ellis Hollow Rd. Nari B.
