Slow Migration~ Carthage, NC

I hope you are all having a wonderful spring.

Seems like places up north are still buried in snow.

Its been an odd spring here as well…much cooler than normal. More rain.

Less migrants..

This is what it looked like last year..

Local Bluebirds nest in the yard..



Chickadees are nesting here also..

The Local Chipping sparrows are nesting in a Cedar in the yard.


The first Blue at the feeder was this Male Blue Grosbeak..

He arrived over a week ago.

No females seen.

We usually have a handful..

We now have two, no females seen.

I really miss the Rose-breasted Grosbeak and hope to see them before we leave NC on Friday.


I will check up on the Black Vulture a few more times before we leave to see if her eggs have hatched.
