I thought I had someone's escaped parakeet in the yard today, turns out it's
a leucistic N. Cardinal. Leu
Another oddity was a pair of Wood Ducks checking out a tree cavity
yesterday. We're a good half mile from the nearest open pond or swamp, so
it doesn't seem like an obvious nest site for them. Neat yard bird though.
A pair of Purple Finches has been around for about two weeks.
April 11 we had a Blue H. Vireo.
Our E.Phoebes returned about 2 weeks ago and have rebuilt their nest on the
gutter downspout. I think one reason why they like this location is its
proximity to our garden pond, which has a lot of moss and leaf detritus in
it; the nest materials are only 15 feet from the nest site. Phoebe
