It’s been a long time coming, but spring is teasing us with warmer temperatures. Some of the early arrivers include:
Ever notice how the Grackle flies with their tail held diagonally? That is a breeding display and the males only do this in the spring. The rest of the year they hold their tail normally.
The familiar call “konk-a-dee” can be heard early in the spring. The Red-winged Blackbird comes north very early – even before their ponds and sloughs have open water. This time of year they will come into feeders and eat sunflower seeds.
