Inspired by GMcD's Mountain Bluebird I went out to Iona this morning in search of both blue and yellow birds. I was not prepared for how cold and windy it was. I eventually found both of my target birds so that made it worthwhile.

I only found 1 Yellow-headed Blackbird, but that's all I needed. He certainly wasn't shy, I guess looking for handouts.

Hey, what happened to Spring??

I went down to Blackie Spit this morning. It was pretty quiet but I did manage to come away with these 3 additions.

Not the greatest picture as the tide was out so they were quite far away, but I'll take it.

Nice catch on the Sharpie Randy. Don't you love it when the birds come to you like that? It makes up for all of the missed ones.
