World Bird Wed.

Is it time already for world bird Wed.? Go to this link & see all the beautiful birds from all around the world,hosted by the Springman!
This is a depressing time of year for me,watching the song birds fill up for their migrations.We have had alot fueling up going on the past few days.The adults leave first usually,I never understood why unless the little ones have to earn more flight feathers.There are still 2 remaining hummingbirds & the younger brown thrashers.I look for them to be gone this week.Of course,some birds will remain like the white breasted nuthatcher hanging upside down waiting for his turn at the suet cakes.Usually the evenning red breasted grosbeak stops in on their way through here,but I haven`t seen them yet.This poor female cardinal is growing in more feathers but looks rather rough right now.Have a wonderful week!

I'm seeing the same thing here too. I've caught a glimpse of a Mickingbirds who haven't been around much the last couple of months.
