We came home from the cabin a few days back and finally I am getting my birds back. My Oriole feeders are at over capacity with many Baltimore and a few Orchard Orioles. I was also surprised to have a young male Summer Tanager come in multiple times. A neighbor 1/2 mile away has a full adult Summer Tanager. Another neighbor sent me a photo from a friend in Adel and it was another adult male Summer Tanager. 2 for Boone Co, 1 for Dallas Co. I also have 5 Pine Siskins coming in after having none all winter. Lincolns, White-crowned and White-throated Sparrows are present.
