Nuthatch on Feeder
Glen Burnie, MD
March 19, 2021
With the return of the Springtime, the birds have become very active. Chris fed the birds around our house faithfully through the Winter and now the area is full if activity as the nesting cycle begins.

Chris and I were at a friends house for Happy Hour and dinner in Friday evening and this nuthatch was very busy on their feeder. I enjoy watching nuthatch's because the climb down trees headfirst and this particular bird had no issues demonstrating that talent on the bird feeder. 

Through the Winter, we were especially blessed by scores of bluejays, cardinals, tufted titmouse, and wrens and sparrows. We are still waiting for the finches and hummingbirds to make their way back. With the return of Spring the numbers and variety of birds has increased dramatically and we have begun counting the number of nests in the trees. It is easier to find the nests before the leaves return to the limbs.

I am enjoying the Springtime as the world wakes and we begin to shake off the year-long pandemic.
