Baldwin’s Birds


Hello Readers,

I hope all of you are fit and well and enjoying the first warming rays of the beautiful spring sunshine. It makes all the difference to our perspective of life, in general, and certainly has an effect on our wildlife, especially the ones who migrate, twice a year. Many of our winter visitors are no longer evident, such as the Redpolls who have disappeared in the main, but a few stragglers are still feeding this morning. They haven’t been replaced yet by the Gold Finches, or Hummingbirds, but a few returning Redwing Blackbirds have been skittishly flitting into the feeders and about in the adjacent Pine trees. Our resident birds are still very much in evidence, such as Mourning Doves, Blue Jays, Cardinals, Grey Juncos, Chickadees, Rock Pigeons and two types of Nuthatch and Woodpeckers, so all is not lost from a bird viewing perspective. The overhead honking of the northward bound geese adds to the wonder of life, as it goes on each year, at this time, for us all to step back and ponder,– how do they and all those other types of birds and butterflies, travel all those kilometers/miles in their quest for either food, or a place to breed!? Stay safe and well.

John Baldwin
