Backyard shenanigins on a Sunday

It was definitely a beautiful weekend, with both days hitting the 80's in my neck of the woods. The wild weather in the south definitely drove birds northward, I saw my first Oriole and droves of warblers and sparrows yesterday. After I got the lawns mowed the Tree Swallows, Bluebirds and Chipping sparrows took over and cleaned up some of the bugs. Me? I sat on the back porch and enjoyed the warmth and the show.

After the neighbor worked so hard to sow all those oats, the sparrows decided to help him clean up! There were at least 50 varying species out there, to inlcude white-throated, song and chipping sparrows.

Even Mrs. B decided to scope out the goods

But needed to hurry back to her nest
