I hope you and yours are staying well and healthy and that you’re making time to watch birds around your home as much as possible. In the last few days, I have enjoyed a mix of migratory birds showing up in my Wisconsin backyard, including White-crowned and White-throated Sparrows, Baltimore Oriole, and Gray Catbird. The sightings really lifted my mood during these dark and sad times we’re all experiencing. So, I thought I’d share a couple of my photos and images that our readers have posted from their yards. The following slideshow features photos recently posted to our Reader Galleries. They come from birdwatchers in South Carolina, Michigan, Alberta, and other areas. Enjoy.
Ross Gorman spotted this unusual Evening Grosbeak at his feeder in Cody, Wyoming. The males of this species have a thick yellow eyebrow, which this bird has. But it also has an additional splash of yellow on its crown, an area this is usually black.
