Another rainy day, but not as wet as yesterday. I saw a few green bumps poking out of the barkdust in people's yards today—looks like the beginnings of crocuses already. A scrub jay tried to attach itself to the suet feeder long enough to get a bit of food, but it has a tough time. A Bewick's wren was singing from the trees and I heard it sing at least two variations on its song.
The Bewick's wren has become much more abundant in our area over the past year because, hmmm, now I recognize its song!
I'm concerned that I still have not heard a winter wren since last winter.
