we are pretty close to the airport, so we do get a good amount of air traffic over the house. On Saturday they were using the East / West runway, so a few came directly over the house pretty low.
We haven't had Evening Grosbeaks before this year. We have a flock of about 6 that hung around for the past 2 weeks. The males are gorgeous and might just end being my favorite backyard bird. And today a white crowned Sparrow showed up. I haven't noticed one of those before.Humming birds arrived at the end of April here in Paradise. Then a major flock of Evening Grosbeaks along with black headed Grosbeaks. The Orioles arrived right afterwards and have gone thru a 1/2 bag of oranges already. Probably the best bird year in the 15 years I have been here so far.
