Mostly Sleet and Freezing Rain
I have noticed over the last week that the Yellow-Rumped Warblers are already beginning to take on more color. We usually only gt a brief period of time before they depart in April to see them in their breeding plumage.
Yellow bird (parakeet) that showed up under my feeder last March that I rescued has been having a field day today sitting at the window. It has chirped and squawked at all of the birds coming to the suet feeder. It seems hard to believe I have had the bird for almost a year. It still will not come to my finger but I hold a piece of wooden dowel out and it will fly to me.
It particularly goes nuts over the Goldfinches. I wonder it it thinks they are kin?
