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.
