To Westminster Woods to see Gram.  Though warm, it was a little windy.  I draped a wrap around her neck and shoulders.  She smiled sweetly at me and said, “Thank you.”

I spotted a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker high up a tree:

Saw the first American Goldfinch of the season in our back yard today.  At least one male Ruby-throated Hummingbird has also shown up again.  And, though neither shot is sterling, here are two holdovers from winter:

Ruby-crowned Kinglet

Yellow-rumped Warbler

And here’s a House Finch, a year-round resident:

Late this afternoon I saw the first Northern Parula of the season–taking a bath in the bubbler, of course!

First back-yard sighting of a Ruby-throated Hummingbird! I just put the hummmingbird feeder up yesterday.  A Yellow-rumped Warbler and a Ruby-crowned Kinglet are still coming to the mixed-nut feeder.  It’s raining right now, and the Kinglet’s ruby crown is gleaming.
