And Songbirds, Too

You definitely know it’s Spring around here when you can not only hear, but see, the songbirds moving through the area. Most are part of the spring migration and won’t be seen until they pass through again in the Fall. A few actually stay, but once mating season is over and babies have been hatched, it’s nearly impossible to spot them.

Right now there seems to be a lot of Orange-Crowned Warblers.

a few very bright Western Tanagers,

some very noisy Marsh Wrens,

and the first of the Cedar Waxwings.

Of course, just because you can see them doesn’t mean you can actually get a good picture of them. They are the hardest of the birds to photograph since they depend on their speed and ability to stay hidden to survive.

  1. Sigh – all I’ve seen so far this year are pine siskens, a few robins, sparrows, and swallows – but mostly pine siskens
