Migration Numbers are Fewer and Fewer

The Cedar Waxwings returned on and off all day. They travel in a large group, so when they arrive, the yard is alive with activity!

The longer they are around, the less shy they become - venturing out of the bushes and into the yard.

Beautiful birds!

 We had another visitor - a White-crowned Sparrow. Although not a new Life Bird, he is a new bird for the yard.

Our Black-headed Grosbeak also made several appearances.

The Western Tanagers are still around - but we only see them 2 or 3 times a day in very small numbers. The Bullock's Oriole made one appearance only. Our fabulous migration is almost over. I really need to get back to quilting!
