Bud Eating Birds

I heard a couple of new birds (sort of) singing this morning in the yard. A Golden-crowned Sparrow has been around, but I hadn’t heard it before. I also heard a robin sing a few notes. These didn’t sound like full on songs, but they were getting their voices warmed up, at least. The robin made me wonder about migrants, as we’re getting to the time when the first song bird migrants return (robins and Ruby-crowned Kinglets are among the first).
