Breeding birds around the yard

Despite the seemingly never ending rain I have gotten some birds around the house. The House Wren male continues his constant singing, the crows have increased in number to nine including some begging fledglings. A chipping sparrow has been around all day feeding its fledgling too. Various warblers continue to sing around the yard as goes a variety of other birds including Alder and Great Crested Flycatcher, Red Eyed and Warbling Vireo, Scarlet Tanager and Rose Breasted Grosbeak. My female Ruby throated Hummingbird has been largely absent as she likely sits on eggs but a male has been around all day. Lots of activity despite the rain.


  1. Good to see you establishing a blog Larry! See you out there sometime.


  2. Yes I finally got around to doing it. Hopefully I'll catch up with you sometime at Quabbin.
