Little treasures

Right outside our front door, one brilliant cardinal, but I really wanted to see spring birds, so I walked past pigeons dining on bread and starlings eating french fries and got into the park. Movement in the grass right across from Wagner Cover. Kinglets! Oh, joy! Twitching around in grass and gravel, getting bugs and bits. Frantic gorging.

Near the upper lobe the treat - two yellow bellied sapsuckers being social.

This was going on even after I left, both together moving from tree to tree, chattering, drilling. The trees are going to look like swiss cheese.
