I saw my first one just yesterday. The Bluebirds have been here for a couple of weeks and they are in the same family. Our harbinger of spring is no longer the robin, but the red-winged blackbird - or so I've been told.

The red-winged blackbirds usually arrive this weekend. I'll have to watch out for them.

Our redwings are here, grackles too!

Sigh for the bluebirds, I rarely see one in town.

One of these days the goldfinches will be gold and hopping among the dandilions :o)

I have a male bluebird calling and calling out back this morning. Saw both male and female yesterday and hope they decide to set up house in the nesting box before the crazy house wren appears.

A true delight is seeing the Goldfinches, Bluebirds and cardinals in the same tree, like little gems. And can't wait for the hummingbirds!

Mamasita, that would be a wonderful picture! Lucky you!

I have a bluebird house and the wrens think it's their's. Never mind that they have 4 of their own around the yard ;o)
