Every year, I look forward to the return of "my" phoebes. I just saw my first one near the back porch, where a pair has been nesting for years under the eaves. I hope they once again nest on my porch! My unofficial "start of spring" has arrived. Robyn Bailey -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:

We had one yesterday. We’ve seen two at our kitchen window feeders regularly since the beginning of January, but that was the only one who showed up in the last week. On the other hand, we haven’t been inside, looking out the windows as much! > On Mar 22, 2021, at 9:52 AM, bob mcguire
