“Signs of spring today included a male Red-winged Blackbird at the feeder in our backyard in Cavan. When I went outside a few minutes later it was calling, as were a group of 4-5 robins in the neighbour’s yard. While I was watching them picking tiny dried apples off the neighbour’s ornamental tree, a group of 12 Bohemian Waxwings joined them. It was fun to see those two species feeding together.”
