Subject: [IBLE] A Change
There's been a change today in birds. Cassin's Finch numbers are down to just 3-4, all females. And Evening Grosbeaks have decreased to about a dozen from a high of 30. They're about evenly split, male to female. There are more Yellow Warblers & Lazuli Buntings appearing. Also, a small flock, 4-5, Cedar Waxwings showed yesterday.

More male Black-headed Grosbeaks are appearing at the feeder now. A new bird for the season today was a Ruby-crowned Kinglet. And, both a male & female Black-chinned Hummingbird are hitting the nectar feeder, but not at the same time. There's a Sharp-shinned Hawk which keeps the Eurasian Collared Doves greatly thinned. I rarely see more than 2-3 at a time & find a pile of their gray dove feathers about every 10 days or so. During the winter, the Sharpie adds an occasional Junco to his diet. The Blue Jay was here yesterday but haven't seen today.
