Don’t you love to hear the birdies sing?  Spring is really here in Minnesota.  We’ve had an exceptionally mild March and April, and all of a sudden, those little birdies are everywhere!  A sampling of the last four days…a male cardinal:

A female cardinal (I think she was checking for fallen bird seed under the feeder):

A cute little chipping sparrow:

And a downy woodpecker:

It was so interesting to watch this woodpecker climb straight up this tree with no difficulty at all.  It looks like he has wide-spread toes to really grip the bark.

Well, I’ll save the rest of the flock for another post!

  1. Isn’t it amazing the colour difference betweeen the male and female cardinal. One time my friend and I were walking on a sidewalk and there was a woodpecker right in front of us, pecking at something betweeen the cracks in the cement. I had never seen one up close before. I usually just here them and it was pretty neat seeing it.
