Welcome Back Birds

Posted on May 11, 2014 by Bruce MacNaughton
It's spring! Yeah! Everyone has a first sign they look for to tell them that spring has finally arrived. For me it's when I hear the White-throated Sparrow. I know they'll soon be skitting around under my bird feeders looking to clean up any stray seeds they find. They do that because there's a shortage of insects and berries at this time of year. Soon they'll be looking for a suitable place to nest which often is under my thick shrubs unless the cat sees what they're up to, and in that case they move to higher ground.
White-throated Sparrows are one of the prettier Sparrows with their bright white throat and yellow lores. Some have white stripes on their head and some have a more buff coloured stripe. Both equally handsome.
