Goldfinches, House Finches, Doves, Fly Catchers, Hummingbirds. Hawks and Ravens too. here in Logandale, in Southern NV.
We are greeted each morning by one of our Pileated Woodpeckers and yesterday (Easter Day) we saw our first Ruby Throat Hummers splashing in one of our fountains.Our Cardinal population numbers well over 150 and they are well fed with sunflower seeds and small pieces of nuts.Our home is back in the woods and we are so blessed with our birds of all varieties. Our hummer population has grown from the first year of around 10 to well over 100 now and they will soon be here in full force.Warm days are not too far ahead and excitement is growing
I am wondering if there is a time line by area for the country you live in for when which birds show up somewhere. I saw 3 morning doves the other day and this morning 2 Golden Finches this morning and the wind has been cold here the last few days. We have had an early Spring otherwise here in Central MN. Should I be putting out my Hummingbird and Oriel feeders yet or is it to early?
Hi Diane, Here's a bird migration timetable by state which you might find interesting: http://www.birdnature.com/timetable.html
And here's another great page on migration forecasts:
Good afternoon from Columbia, Alabama. I have my sewing machines set up so I can see out the windows on my front porch, where I have 3 bird feeders and 2 Hummingbird feeders. I love my Hummers and in about an hour there will close to 20 here, but off and on thru out the day. I looked up and saw 5 Rose-breasted Grosbeaks on top of the one feeder. It was beautiful. I have several male Indigo Buntings here just about all the time, with the regular, cardinals, nuthatches, finches, but have never seen the Grosbeaks here before. Are they just moving thru or will they stay?
Thank you, enjoy Nature to the fullest
I had never seen a rose-breasted grosbeak until last week here in Katy, TX. They are migrating. He stayed for about 3 days. Last week was also the first time I saw an indigo bunting and red-winged blackbird. The regulars are northern cardinals, mourning doves, sparrows, and bluejays.
What beautiful birds! Our guess is that they're just passing through during their spring migration.
My husband and I are trying to figure out what this bird is I don't have a picture but it is a reddish brown bird with a long tail and it hops and bobs his beak in the ground we thought it was a
type of thrush but cannot find any information on it
