Some new birds : the Eastern Phoebe.

Some changing birds: the Goldfinch.

Some fattening up for their journey: the White-throated Sparrow.

Some lingerers: the Pine Siskin,.

Plus a bonus 1 or 2:
White-breasted Nuthatch

Black-capped Chicadee

An early butterfly

Photographed near the Oven yesterday by MURRAY HEAD. It's a Mourning Cloak, often the first butterfly to be seen in spring!

PS Hope you enjoyed Earth Hour last night. In my household, we enjoyed our candlelight dinner so much we've decided to observe Earth Hour every week.
