My neighbor’s plumeria plant was blooming in early May. I was able to snap the above before the squirrels ate them.
The young Carolina wrens were looking for food in the bushes. Mom was still feeding them bugs. The young ones are as big as Mom but they still have a lot of yellow around their beaks.
I hadn’t been seeing many bluebirds in the backyard (I think they have been nesting). I saw this young one sitting on our feeder and then others started showing up again.
The first week in May was the last time I saw a parula. They must all be north for the summer (I don’t blame them although this year it may be just as hot up there).
By early May I was getting hummingbirds every day at the feeder. The male only showed up the first few days and now I only see females.
The squirrels were still getting frisky.
By now the only birds coming to the suet were woodpeckers and blue jays. Once this one was gone I took the basket down for the summer.
