Female (first two pics) and male Eastern bluebirds are always a great spot of color on a usually drab brown/tan landscape of little new growth. This year these little gems could find plenty of bugs eating on the fresh buds on trees!
Northern Flickers spend a lot of their time finding their protein in the ground, under leaves, and in the dirt. was nice to see one posing so beautifully in this tree. This female does not have the red mallor "mustache" of the males.
Stay tuned! Brown Creepers, Yellow-rumps and more to come!
