Brown Thrasher, Fox Sparrow and Song Sparrow, yard birds in Waukesha County on April 15, 2018

With the snowy day outdoors I stayed home but I did get some nice birds right out the kitchen window. 2 Song Sparrows which hung around all day. 2 Fox Sparrows showed up around noon and are still here. A Brown Thrasher showed up in the late afternoon for about 5 minutes. It spent it’s time below a pedestal feeder digging in mulch and leaves eating possible grubs, bugs or seeds. A lot of activity in the yard today for birds. Other birds we see daily, Dark-eyed Juncos, Black-capped Chickadees, Red and White Breasted Nuthatches, Northern Cardinals, Mourning Doves, Blue Jays, Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers were also present overall putting on a great bird show. Images were taken though the glass not disturbing the feeding activity today. Images were taken on April 15, 2018.

    I had 2 bedraggled song sparrows among dozens of juncos in our continuous snow storm today. Poor things. Our Spring? weather has not been kind to the birds.

    No song sparrows in our yard. But 2 very puffy robins, along with many juncos, a cardinal and house sparrows.
    Very nice pictures.

    Nice Jim. All I am getting is Starlings, Juncos, Gold Finches, House Finches, Pond Siskins, and Red-winged Blackbirds.
