Some birds from week 21.

First, a Pine Siskin. Normally an occasional winter species for us but we had large numbers last winter and we’ve still got a dozen or so around this spring. They’re an irruptive species meaning numbers vary from year to year as the birds follow food sources.

Next, a Turkey Vulture soars overhead while I waited for an uncooperative Baltimore Oriole.

Finally a female Common Grackle searching for a meal in the yard. An often overlooked species, a lot of people regard them as a nuisance around their bird feeders. I rather like them although I don’t have a lot of shots of the species.
