More sun – more food – more birds

We had a winter warm-up this week with temperatures exceeding 60 degrees. Most of the snow melted and the birds were loving it. I’ve seen Mourning Doves basking in the sun.

American Robins have already started their switch from a winter-berry diet to picking out meaty morsels as the surface of the soil begins to thaw.

This left its highly guarded berry-bush to head out on ground patrol. We’ve had a nice taste of spring and the real thing will soon be here!

Married, I am not a casual weekend birder,-still learning-still making mistakes. I am not a writer or photographer but enjoy blogging about my outdoor adventures. I am currently using a Canon PowerShot SX50 HS camera, Meopta Meostar 8x42 binoculars, and a vortex spotting scope. The Name Brownstone Birding Blog comes from the fact that I in which Portland has been known for its brownstone quarries for many years. Much of the brownstone used for older buildings in New York came from the town of Portland.
