One of my favorite birds on the Mendonoma Coast is the Swainson's Thrush. Its flute-like calls are wonderful to hear, always ending on a high note. To listen for yourself, here's a link from Cornell Lab of Ornithology: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/swainsons_thrush/sounds
Robert Schwein discovered a nest with three eggs. They are completely blue with no flecks of brown, which is a bit unusual. However the babies didn't care. Robert watched them fledge a few days ago.
American Goldfinches arrive in the spring, delighting us with their beauty. Jeff and Pearl Watts had a Goldfinch nest in the wreath hanging on their door! Here's a photo of the young birds in the nest.
Thanks to the Watts and Robert Schwein for allowing me to share their photos.
