Seriously, it's the last day of the month - an 'extra' day. I need to get this finished today. How do you intend to use your 'extra' leap day?
With mild temperatures, the Robins are more active and are singing.
I just love my Chestnut-backed Chickadees.
I found a pressed mix of seeds and nuts that they adore.
It's nice to have them around.
I must have 25 Oregon Juncos. They work away in the feeders and also are active ground feeders.
I have just one White-throated Sparrow. But I see the bird most days.
There are several Fox Sparrows...
...and even more Spotted Towhees.
I've had as many as fifteen Pine Siskins. About the time the American Goldfinches return in April, these birds will depart to the northern boreal forests of Canada.
My flock of House Finches is growing too. There are close to a dozen birds and they will be here all spring and summer.
