We'Re BaAaCk!!

Spring is truly here in southeastern Montana! This morning I caught sight of my pair of Tree Swallows. Last year they raised a couple of broods of babies in our yard. I LOVE to watch them in the summer, they are so fascinating! I think they were checking out the ole' homestead today, I hope they decide it will work for another year. Please don't tell me they want an upgrade:)
The Red Crossbills have also returned. This one is a female, hence little to no red on her. They are the reason I have had to do away with finch socks, their little mandibles just tear the fabric apart so it streams out. Metal feeders are the only way to go for them.
Welcome, welcome Spring!!


I LOVE comments!! They make me smile! Thanks!!
