Foxy Warberling time

Rather a wet day today but made much better by the appearance at the bottom of the garden of a pair of Yellow-rumped warblers, the first of the year. This is very encouraging.

Mid-afternoon a Fox Sparrow spent some time rummaging in the leaf litter at the back of the garden behind the pond – a first for the garden altogether.


Some seventeen species had appeared in the garden before breakfast wa sover, including an unphotographable Ruby-crowned Kinglet whose red top-knot wasa real blaze of colour, as well as the Brown Creeper again (this one paler than the other, fairly sure there are at least a pair of the birds staying locally, and decently yellowed-up Goldfinch.



So the garden year list now stands at 37 species and the total garden list at a round 90 !!
