Enjoyed some armchair birding late this morning. Was watching the Carolina Wren feeding on the suet when a Pine Warbler showed up which was a nice surprise. It fed a little and then flew away but returned shortly thereafter. While watching it a second Pine Warbler arrived at the suet and knocked the other Piney off. This happened twice and did not see them again. One Piney was rather drab and the other had some nice yellow coloring in its face and chest. Hairy WP has been regular visitor and Red-Breasted Nuthatch has been an irregular visitor. Our local Song Sparrow even investigated the suet for the first time today. It appears that our Goldfinches are beginning to take on a yellowish hue especially in the face and upper chest. Can Spring be far behind ?
