Some Spring Birds

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: New life emerging prompt.

There’s very little sign of spring around this part of Ontario at the moment, we got snow last Thursday.

So I decided to go with a small selection of of bird species that have started appearing on spring migration.

Saturday Bird: Pine Siskin

A Pine Siskin in spring. They stopped off in autumn on their way south and again on their way north in spring.

January Squares: Up #31

A male American Goldfinch. We had a couple of American Goldfinch on and off over winter but suddenly the male is getting his bright yellow breeding plumage.

January Squares: Up #26

A Chipping Sparrow. The first of the New World Sparrows to arrive this year. The first species is usually the Song Sparrow but I still haven’t had one this spring.

One Word Sunday: Spring

A Dark-eyed Junco. The first Juncos arrived a week or so ago and there was still at least six here at the weekend.

Spring

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Spring.

After a few days of spring like weather winter returned last Friday.

However, that hasn’t stopped the summer birds appearing. We had at least half a dozen Dark-eyed Juncos around the yard on Friday.
