These are some of the birds at my feeder during the first few weeks of spring.

The Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers have been around all winter and they have been very active this spring. I see them a lot when I put out the Peanut Butter Suit. For some reason they really like it.

The Dark-eyed Juncos are around all winter but they seem to leave just about the time spring came. They were gone for a couple of weeks but are back again. I’m thinking the birds around now are migrants that are just stopping off to resupply.


A small number of Pine Siskins have been around all winter and they are still around.


The White-breasted Nuthatches have been around all winter. I still see them at the feeders. One in particular likes to grab a Black Sunflower seed and then fly over to the fence post and try and crack it open.


The one bird that has returned from the south is the Song Sparrow. A couple of them have been hanging around the feeders and the pines in front of the house. they usually nest in the pines.
