There were a number of birds out today. Several Juncos feeding on the ground, a House Finch, Marsh Wren, and several Northern Cardinal feeding at the bird feeder. A “murder” of Black Crows were working the lawn looking for earthworms. The earthworms were out because the ground is saturated. I haven’t seen any Robins yet this spring that would also be after the earthworms. The crows attracted the attention of a Turkey Vulture that landed looking for something to eat. The crows quickly joined together making a lot of noise and then chasing the turkey vulture away.

Small birds at and on the ground below the bird feeder. A number of seeds had been dumped on the ground during the wind storm the other night. Some birds only feed at the feeder, others only on the ground, and some work both locations. In today’s set, House Finch, Goldfinch, Dark-eyed Junco, and Mourning Pigeon. As it started getting dark, the deer came through so I had to up the ISO for the images.
