Caught this little fellow this morning--where else but in a pine tree?







Nearby was a first-year Blue Grosbeak, the first I've ever seen around my yard



And, at the edge of the woods, a hermit thrush poked his nose out

Thanks, Jim. Most of our winter visitors, like the two-legged kind who come down here to escape cold northern winters, are long gone. I haven't seen a junco or goldfinch in about a month. The Eastern Phoebe who nests in a corner of our front porch has already raised one brood, and I saw her on her nest again today, so we'll soon have even more of these wonderful little birds. (As a result, we don't have a mosquito problem, lol.) Our very loud supply of Yellow-Breasted Chats arrived this week. Surprisingly, one allowed himself to be photographed this morning. Last year, I had to work 6 weeks to catch one of these guys close enough for a half-way decent photo....despite the fact that they were making noise constantly.
