I'm missing these big boys from the Birdfeeder Crowd that meets outside my kitchen sink windowsill every day. Also missing are the dark-eyed junco, hairy woodpeckers, and the nuthatches.
The (fickle) robins are back to stay for the season, and so are the showy oriels, but they won't be visiting the feeder. I've been seeing red-winged blackbirds though, mucking around in the birdseed, and a cowbird or two. Maybe, just maybe, an indigo bunting will stop by for a free meal. I'm looking forward to it!
