Considering everyone hearing the birds talking, my woodpeckers timice chicadees ect have been sounding off since the past weekend. Also the hawks that I had in the beginning of the week. And the starlings have found my feeders. All the birds here are happy. Spring coming!!! Forget about the weather man watch the birds! Good birding Lisa. East Hampton.

I have also heard the titmice singing.  I have also heard the chickadees
starting to sing this week also.  And this morning as I was refilling the
thistle sock, I heard a noise that finally registered as the goldfinch call
note, many of them talking to each other, which I haven't really heard in
awhile.  It might not look or feel like spring yet, but hopefully it won't
be long!  I also heard a Carolina Wren singing, but that isn't really a sign
of spring because they sing all the time!

Everybody look what's going down!  For what its worth,  when I got up the 
courage to go out in the 15* weather to clean my car off I  heard a familiar

sound, but it took a second to register.  Several birds  calling and 
answering.  Something's happening here!  My  Titmice!!  Calling back in
forth in 
between trips to my feeder platform to  steal peanuts and BOSS.  First time 
since last fall I had heard them.   I actually heard them several times
the day today.  A little  reminder that spring can't be that far away!

My apologies for this late post, given the interest in early black birds. I have had small numbers of grackles and RWBB here consistently since November. Like the juncos and goldfinch appear and disappear, so do they. Three grackles today. Last week a pair of cowbirds and 1 RWBB one day, 3 RWBB present on another day.

A junco note: normally ground feeders, right? They have been getting on all the feeders except the peanut butter, which includes suet, BOSS, mixed seeds and nyger. The flock usually has a tree sparrow tagging along.
