We always like to get back to Colorado Springs for the Spring migration - around mid-May. This year we've not been disappointed.
A Bullock's Oriole was here to welcome us. He stayed around for a few days before moving on.
We always enjoy the Western Tanagers. This year we've had 5 or 6 flying around.
We've seen a couple of male Black-headed Grosbeaks and one female.
This is a younger Western Tanager with just a hint of red on the head.
We had an entire flock of Chipping Sparrows stop by one morning.
I love the Woodpeckers! This Downy stops by everyday for a snack.
We've also had quite a few Pine Siskins this year.
This picture shows the streak of yellow better. This is a first for the yard.
Another first - a Nuthatch.
It's hard for me to determine size when I look at my pictures. I assume this is a Downy and not his bigger cousin the Hairy.
