World Bird Wed.

The hummingbirds arrived this week,did not get a picture of them,don`t even have the feeders out yet,deaths & shearing & getting behind in so many other things made me forget it is May already & the birds are arriving here in Pa.2 weeks ahead of time this year.
The brown thrashers usually arrive exactly on April 21,but they got here at the beginning of April & must be sitting on eggs already as they sing their flute-like song to their babies.
The robins are feeing their young too,all the while keeping a watchful eye out for the hawk.
The red bellies are coming to the feeder for suet,but out of all the cavities in the trees I`ve looked at,I have not found their nest,
These are my submissions for this week.Please go to the springman`s blog for world bird Wed. to see what other people from all over the world are showing.The link is

Wonderful birds, I love the woodie and the Brown Thrasher. It would be cool to find the nest cavity. Thanks for sharing your WBW. Have a happy day!

Great pictures!! I love how you keep track of when the birds return. I've not done that but am going to have to because I have no idea when our hummingbirds showed up last year, and I've not seen them yet this year.

Great photos! I love keeping track of when the birds arrive. I noticed the first hummingbird yesterday, so I put our feeders out :-)
