At Home and Work

The CyFair college campus continues to be quiet for "interesting" birds. I've been watching out for fall migrants - such as Yellow Warblers - but so far without luck. Of course, we still have our normal residents.

Mourning Doves, Northern Mockingbirds and Great-tailed Grackles (below) are everywhere.

There are a few Killdeer and Loggerhead Shrikes (below) also.

At home the situation is similar in that there are no migrants (except Ruby-throated Hummingbirds) but lots of residents.

Carolina Chickadees are among our most loyal birds. I don't think there is ever a day when they don't visit our feeders.

Our House Finches seemed to disappear for a while but now they are back in numbers.

The best news is that the Brown-headed Nuthatches that turned up for the first time ever in January are still making regular visits to our feeders. So it looks like they have now become residents!
