And They Were Singing!

After a good inch of rain and a "splash" of hail the night before, despite the overcast, cool sky, my yard was alive with happy birds!  I spotted this beautiful Yellow-Rumped Myrtle Warbler (Dendroica coronata) singing his heart out!  Warblers are a very tiny bird but their songs are ever so sweet!

I was also very fortunate to be bombarded by a flock of Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks!  Gorgeous birds that don't often show themselves.  They have a tendency to stay high up in the tree canopy but with our trees just leafing out, it makes it a bit easier to spot so many of our songsters!

Of course, it helps to spot so many "BOYS" strutting their stuff when there is a lady around!
