Spring Migration

Spring migration is at it's peak now. The Warblers are moving north through here in good numbers. I have seen quite a few almost every day. We have had a large amount of rain this spring and that cuts down on the days I can go out and take photos but, I have gotten quite a few as shown below. As we get toward the end of the month things will slow down quite a bit.I am sure. We had some of the regulars show up and enjoy the seed at the feeders. The indigos, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, House Finch, American Goldfinch and the Siskins have shown up in numbers. The Woodpeckers are busy feeding their young and the Summer Tanager is calling every mourning. The Flycatchers are keeping the bugs out of the yard.

Seems like everyone is enjoying the spring.
