First Time Birds for 2016

I've seen skeins of Canada Geese several times this year, but I think they are so pretty, I had to share my latest photos.  

Amazing how closely they fly in formation.

This Wild Turkey is a first-timer for 2016. 

She appeared to be alone.

She ate sunflower seeds and hung around for most of a day, but I've not seen her again.

And here's another 'firster' for 2016, and honestly no cause for celebration in my book.  Two Band-tailed Pigeons showed up on Wednesday. 

They are such bullies and pigs at the feeders, that I have to change out my feeding stations and remove the plastic trays in an effort to deter them.  Nonetheless, they are a sign of spring.
