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.
