Yesterday morning I looked out the back window and saw our first Catbird of the year. Then I walked to the front window and there was our first Ruby-throated Hummingbird. I was glad I had hung up the hummer feeder even though we see very few until late July. Towhees have been around since February 12 – males only. I have only seen a female once or twice in the three years we have lived here. The Juncos and White-throated Sparrows are still hanging around. A female Red-belly shows up most days year round. But starting April 6 a male has been coming around for the first time.
