I have a pair of yellow-bellied sapsuckers coming several times daily, a pair of orioles, a pair of Cardinals, several pairs of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, 2 pairs of Downy Woodpeckers, several pairs of Hairys, a pair of White-breasted nuthatches, two pairs of nesting chipping sparrows, a pair of nesting song sparrows, a pair of nesting Phoebees and a pair of Robins. I still have a small flock of White-crowned sparrows hanging around daily. Hummers have been back for about two weeks as of today. Also a Brown thrasher singing on a daily basis and a house wren singing daily as well. I also see a Pileated Woodpecker about 2 times per week and hear it “laughing” often in the woods.
