According to my calendar, winter has ended and spring has begun. My tracking of backyard winter birds has ended with 19 species making appearances. Common Redpolls were the most numerous with 224 of them showing up at one time. American Goldfinches were second with 61 birds at one time, and the elegant little Juncos were third most numerous, at on time, at 34, along with the Treesparrows. The Juncos, shown above (female - left / male - right) will be the last leave - they always are, it seems. Following is the complete list.
