Springtime?

Blue Jay
I heard the first blue jay today. Spring can't be long off now.

Up here we get the bluejays year 'round. Do you mean you heard then change to their spring song?

We first heard a chickadee sing it's two-note spring song on January 6th this year! By mid-January the chickadees and also the cardinals had begun occasionally uttering spring. By the end of January it was frequent. They are at least three weeks ahead of previous years. They year-rounders busily searching out their spring territories, so they'll get the pick of locations before the migratory birds show up. You may note that you don't so often find more than one male cardinal eating together now, as they are getting into competition mode.

But the best part is that the owls' eggs hatch around Valentine's day, so they are already nesting!

They year-rounders = the year-rounders are

(Please bear with me, it's been a long hard workday and I'm tired.)

And! While out walking today my hubby and I saw and heard a male Pileated Woodpecker, as it flew from one section of trees to another. Spectacular moment!

Well, listener, I'm not enough of an ornothologist to know which song or call... it was the two-note thingy. That came at the beginning of the recording on my Peterson's tape. I knew I recognized the sound, just couldn't place who it was.

*scratches head* we do have a lot of birds, especially since my parents feed all winter. Maybe I got excited over nothing. Maybe Mr. Blue Jay was just saying, "Shove over and let me get some seed!" In any case, though, it did cheer my morning.

Oh,, and listener, don't worry about the typing! It's not important. That you come and hang out here is what's important.
