Just got a 2 lb bag of meal worms for our bluebirds. $32Ö..and that was cheapÖ.comparatively.

Still think I should be able to claim them as dependents on my taxes.
If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Spring is getting close here. I was at my daughter's yesterday waiting for the school bus. 55 degrees and sunny. There were several starlings on the roof and barns that were singing up a storm claiming their nest site. [ I've been noticing the birds singing at home in the mornings too. A couple pairs of ducks flew by, but the best show was the pair of Bald Eagles that circled and danced with each other for 20 minutes over her house. In my 70 years I have never seen such an open winter along with nature waking up early too. Hopefully the woodchuck blew the call and spring is just around the corner.

Here in Henrietta I had a big fat robin in my yard yesterday. And went to my camp Monday in Allegany co. and saw several dead skunks on the road skunks out and about is always a sign of spring

Yeah, robins and dead skunks all over here. Robins are traveling with the starlings. Havenít seen other early spring arrivals like red wings or white capped sparrows. Bluebirds arenít interested in the nest box yet.

They may be a lot smarter than we are.

Some robins have braved the winter here, seen one out at work the other day at 10 below. No other sign of spring here, looks to he 20 below tonight. Have not seen a starling yet though.

I donít get starlings but a lot of blue jays. They make a mess. Usually I have 3 of 4 pairs of cardinals but this year there few and far in between..
 Even the chickadee population seems down..

Raquette we have about the same results at our feeder.  I think the easy weather has allowed the birds to find vittles where they feel most comfortable.  I have a couple hawks hanging around also.

The vultures in Letchworth park are back or they never left. Starlings are pairing off already. I'm still waiting for the Hairy woodpecker to start hammering on my stove pipe. He's been here the last 6 years.

Was watching the geese on the canal this morning while walking. Theyíre pairing up and getting very territorial.
Seems way too early to me.
