Songbirds

Finally, some songbirds! I’ve spent a lot of  time in Green-Wood this winter and it has been barren of some of the usual winter bird suspects. So it was good to run into Tufted Titmouse, White-breasted Nuthatch, Golden-crowned Kinglet (rather unexpectedly) and a small flock of American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) all hanging close together on Hunter’s Island recently.The Goldfinches were ravaging these catkins. The nuthatch was nattering (nuttering?) and the single Tufted Titmouse was finding something pretty darn exciting to eat on the paved path.
