That's one of the most precious things I've seen in a long time.

Dropped a large bag of black oil sunflower seeds in the fire pit. lots of blackbirds and starlings yesterday. A lone male Cardinal in high wind this morning. Nice activity overall.
Heading back to Syracuse Airport tomorrow...my sources tell me the snowies are still there so hopefully I'll have some luck!
Oh goody - I hope you see a few. And get some pictures, too! Big Grin
Welcome back to ol' NY! I hopes you sees them tooExclamation

Nice!
What a cool site!
Well, we've got our annual hummingbirds. Been stopping by for about a week, now.
"Sipping and zipping", my sweetie likes to say. Heart
Pretty soon, we'll be seeing the territorial displays and squabbles over the feeder!

Our bluebird house is happy and noisy. Seems like there's the sound of younguns? I have no idea when they got here or anything like that, coz they were sneaky! we were getting worried that we hadn't seen our bluebirds like we had been, then outta the blue, we see the male bringing goodies to his sweet-heart in the house! *awwwww....*

Tons of blue jays, mourning doves, chipping sparrows, wrens and other 'little brown birds' (too fleeting to identify...)
Also some happy brown thrashers tossing wood chips and leaves all about the yard, crows that fly through the neighbourhood, stop in our yard for a brief visit on their way to... wherever.

Woodpeckers! Red-bellied and a few of downies, as well as a pair of pilliated somewhere in the neighbourhood. We could hear them drumming and 'laughing'... we also have some nuthatches ("'round the tree birds", MIL calls them...)

let's see, also plenty of cardinals and chickadees and titmouses. (fine. titmice. silly spell-checker.)

....

Also with wings...
Saw some fireflies really early, coz we had no real winter around here. Fireflies are common in the late Spring and Summer, but we saw them for a few weeks in freakin' February! Crazy weather.

Also got to see a few dragonflies, which is nice, coz we used to have tons, but then they vanished for a while. So it's always nice to see they may be returning!
pretty butterflies...
Tiger swallow-tail, some kind of blue with black, might be another kind of swallow-tail. Some kind of bright yellow, maybe the size of a monarch.?. Whatever they are, they went crazy over the pineapple sage last couple of years, can't wait to see the frenzy again this year!

and the bees.
I'm seriously falling in love with bees.
We've had some honeybees visit, and our funny, fuzzy carpenter bees.

Not as fond of the wasps, but so far, I haven't seen them this year.
When I was coming home on Monday afternoon, I walked past a lovely stormwater/wetland near the house and saw two bufflehead ducks had staked it out.

But the best part was hearing the call of the male red-winged blackbird. Crappy weather here this week, but it's supposed to be 20C (upper 60sF) over the weekend, so I'll try to get over there early in the morning with my camera.
