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.
A Pine Siskin in spring. They stopped off in autumn on their way south and again on their way north in spring.
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.
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.
A Dark-eyed Junco. The first Juncos arrived a week or so ago and there was still at least six here at the weekend.
