Hello Birders!

Just now seeing an Anna’s collecting fluff from those fluff-balls I leave up year round. (Noticed it for the first time a couple of days ago). One of the balls is now a half-moon! (Of course bushtits and chickadees love it too!)

I now have a new one out front and just saw one plucking and lifting straight up (I keep hoping to have one nest a little lower! Sigh). Now I have to see if I can locate the nest site. It seems they prefer the higher elevations of the pine and firs, since that’s where they’ve been nesting since 2014. (or was it 2013?) Time flies, eh?

When snowdrops and daphne bloom, Anna’s begin to nest.

Stay tuned!
