A Hummingbird that isn't a Hummingbird!

Hummingbird Moths look and act remarkably like real birds. They are beautiful! This is the first one I've ever see-it was in my tars,feeding on a Bee Balm flower. Official name is "Hummingbird Clearwing"  (Hemaris thysbe).


Red Crossbills in Vermont

These birds are becoming more populous here-perhaps even breeding. Many have been seen this winter...mostly heard, actually, as they prefer the tops of tall conifers. I have seen some near my home and about 3 miles away, on a roadway. The closer shots of the redder bird are of a male on the roadway, the more distant shots are a female at my home.


Evening Grosbeaks return

I've had these birds at my feeders for 30+ years, but the population has greatly diminished. I am thrilled to report 5 returning today-3 males and 2 females. I hope to see more.
