We had a Rufous male to the feeder at dusk 7:35pm today. Stayed a long time, first I've seen this spring but haven't been monitoring the feeders much this spring.
This was especially sweet because we still have Varied Thrush each morning. Two today. Some years back i stopped hauling away fall leaves and instead rake them into the planting beds and flower beds. They love this late winter and spring, lots for them to work through each day. This year they are actually tolerant of me being around, just moving to the trees and singing then returning when I leave.
Two days ago I put up the two nyjer feeders, today they were full of pine siskins at lunchtime. At least I believe that's what they were. Some siskins.
