Started at 7:30 am (5 degrees C) and saw at least half of our birds in the first couple of hours. This weekend we welcomed back juncos, rb and wb nuthatches, and brown creeper. Eastern phoebe and blue-headed vireo were nice surprises. Lots of blue jays and rc and gc kinglets.
Phoebe was perched on a garden shed and a monarch landed just in front of it. You could see the phoebe debating whether it could take the monarch. Then it just shrugged its wings and the monarch flew away.
