The Rufous Hummingbirds are here. They are early this year, although they can sometimes come as early as February. They are now here to engage in the Hummingbird Wars with our resident Anna’s. Yesterday I had two of them at my feeder, although I did not get a very good picture. I hope that I can get some before they begin nesting and disappear for a month.
I was really excited yesterday that we had a Stellar’s Jay come to our feeder. We don’t often get them, but I see quite a few only a block away on a really wooded street. We usually only get Scrub Jays around here.
Another bird we’ve been getting have been White Breasted Nuthatches. These are very pretty little birds and the cousin to our usual Yellow Breasted Nuthatch. It’s always nice to see them come to our feeders too.
Elsewhere in the garden almost all of my Tulips are now blooming and
All but a few of my Daffodils are blooming.
Plus the flowers on one of my Dogwoods are starting to open up.
Yes, spring is well underway here in our Pacific Northwest corner of the woods. How is it where you are?
