Re: Weekend/now birds

Interesting.  My goldfinches stay here all winter, but look very drab.
One of the first signs of spring is when the males begin to sprout
bright yellow feathers.  Usually one or two will appear on the head,
then the shoulders begin to show yellow.  That has begun to 
happen here in the past couple of weeks.  
The juncos are still here, though.  Another sign of spring is when
the juncos leave for more northern climes.  I did see a robin last
week, but only one.  Does anyone else remember the New 
Yorker cartoon many years ago that showed two guys lounging
in the entrance of a ski shop.  One says "I saw a damned robin
this morning."

Seems like my goldfinches have flown the coop about a month early.  You
folks in Oklahoma keep your eyes open for the fat little returning birdies.
