Spring must be here! The Hummers are back and I have already refilled the feeders. They are zipping around like crazy!
I still havnt figured out what species this bird is, it is only about 4" long, anyone have an idea? Wondering if it will come back again? Some kind of flycatcher? I lost my bird book, dang it, I have looked on the internet, but there is to much to look through, and I have to have an idea what I am looking for! LOL
Cant wait to be outside watching the Hummingbird antics again and taking pictures when it is warm! We are going to have a week of rain coming up, which means cleaning stalls! I have been leaving them out as much as I can, last night I felt bad because it started raining around 7:30, I fed at 6:30, (it was dry and warm, spring weather sheesh) so I went out and let them in, it was raining hard! and only going to be around 45F so I brought the spoiled girls in LOL.
Well the mystery is solved, the yellow bird above is.... a Ruby Crowned Kinglet. I sent the photos to Cornell Univercity and they got back to me really fast!
