The chorus from the birds every day, heralds spring. Red wing Blackbirds, Robins, Flickers, Starlings, Sparrows, Juncos, and many, many, more are all singing their songs to attract a mate.
These two Flickers have taken time to visit one of the feeders I have outside my den window. They really are handsome birds, with their black, brown, cream and orange colors.
A female Red Wing Black bird waits patiently in a tree, for the flickers to leave the feeder, so she can have some birdseed. I will attempt to get a picture of the male Blackbird, showing off the bright orange feathers on his wings.
