Yesterday we were outside trying to catch up on the gardening and were treated to a symphony of migrant birds continuously passing through the woods around us. We were doing birding by ear and knew who was there. We heard Black-throated Blue, Black-throated Green, Black-and-white, Yellow-rumped and Pine Warblers, lots of Blue-headed Vireos, an Eastern Towhee and Indigo Bunting. Also, our first hummingbird showed up and went right to the feeder. This morning there was a Warbling Vireo by the lake and an Eastern Meadowlark in our field. I just love this time of year.
