BIRDS OF SPRING IN NEW ENGLAND

They aren’t all here yet, but they are on the way. We have the Bluebirds and most of the Juncos have moved on. Not all. There are a few left, but they are migrating north, a few at a time. Some may linger because they like the food. It’s one of the things about feeding them. If they like the food, they may hang around. This may be a good thing, but maybe not. Sometimes, they need to travel to wherever they breed and if they hang around, they won’t breed, though I have noticed that we seem to have a lot of baby birds around here, so there’s a whole lot of breeding going on. I wonder where the nests are?

    • Some days they come out better than others. A lot of success is quality of light. All the birds were hopping around the feeders this morning, but the sun was right in my face. I didn’t bother to try. I know when the sun is that bright, the pictures will be hard to process. I get much better pictures when the sun has moved overhead or to the western side of the house. Usually that’s noon or a bit later, depending on the season. So in about an hour, it’ll be the right time. Those sharp shadows make it impossible to see the birds’ real colors.
