Hi all and welcome back!
I would just like to make a short post mentioning a few good birds I positively identified in my backyard today.
I positively identified (by voice) a very early migrant GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLET that was singing its heart out, but for the life of me, I could not see it! These birds typically arrive in noticeable numbers during the end of the first or the beginning of the second week in April, so this was a very interesting find for my backyard.
Sadly, a COOPER'S HAWK soon came by and scared all of the birds away, decimating my chances of seeing the GC Kinglet. Only this daring BROWN CREEPER (always a nice sighting for my backyard) remained:
It was a relatively interesting day of birding in the backyard.
