Nice Carolina, Nancy - do you have them regularly? I've heard one in town only once. The Winters seem more common. They have one of my favorite songs, and it's fun to watch their mouse-like bobs around tree stumps and such. As for migration ~ while some birds properly classified as resident do make ad hoc in-range movements due to weather, food supply, etc., this does not have the immutability* of the full-scale migration of our beautiful neotropic migrants, whose arrival is just around the corner! I'm hoping for a repeat of last spring's really nice warbler push.
(* At least so far; who knows what climate change may bring for the birds...and us...).

ATTENTION

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.

ACCEPTANCE

  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.

RESPONSIBILITY

  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
