|Not my favorite birds but in the sun, rare these days here, their feathers shine in the light. Now I have about 8 cowbirds. I am becoming pretty popular with the avian set|
As storms kept popping up, I didn't want to be 3 miles from home trying to make friends with people behind gates, I ran around our neighborhood not more than a half mile away from shelter.
Steve was working at the old house; I helped Naomi with some project. Ms. Maya was here too as there was an Easter break. Then I visited Shanna briefly.
In a small break between storms, more birds came to visit. I now have titmice, juncos, and nut hatches. Also, finally we got some good shots of the purple finches. They are so twitchy. One strange thing I see between bird pairs is the males feeding the females by mouth. Is this because it is mating season? I saw it with a cardinal and a finch pair.

|Daniel spent a good part of his vacation ill but now he is on the mend|
|A nuthatch which is a small woodpecker. I had a better photo of him showing his pretty coloring|
|He's so pretty|
