Birds, Inside and Out

Mrs. C is finally complete with red tinges on her crest and tail.

Yesterday I spied the male and female cardinals approached the feeder together.  Mrs. C  then flew up to a branch and waited for Mr. C to follow.  He picked up a seed, flew up to her and offered her the seed.  When she accepted it, their bills touched.  It looked like they stole a quick kiss!

Today I spotted a band of 5 bluejays.  I've been hearing them for about a week, but didn't see them.  The spring bands are led by a female with several males following after her.  This is the precursor to pairing off for nesting season.  Yet another sign that spring can't be too far off.

The cardinals turned out beautiful! Will bluejays be next?
