Healthy Eyes

Our Wingscapes BirdCam captured these pictures last week of the now healthy population of neighborhood finches. It looks like the nasty case of Finch conjunctivitis we saw in March has not continued to spread through the rest of our feeder visitors.

Plus, check out the spring finery on these two males. The House Finches are making their summer home under the deck and we have at least 2 Goldfinches families nesting in the yard.



And, yesterday, we heard our first of the year flute-like serenades from our favorite summer visitors, Wood Thrushes.

Cute Husband, master of record keeping, tells me that this arrival is one day earlier than last year.

Nope, I'm not going to blame it on global warming.

I'm just going to be happy I didn't have to wait any longer for their return.
