With the unsettled weather that we have been having, it is necessary to take what one can get.
This prime winter examples of songbirds show that winter has not left us yet.  Warblers are
transitioning to their spring finery, but we still have some worn birds with their juvenile dress.
These are beautiful males, going for the gold.

The Song and Savannah Sparrows are still plentiful, with Song Sparrows nearly every thirty
feet.

As soon as the weather is more amiable and my schedule permits, I'll be back out there to
bring you more of spring's finer moments.
