The main visitors of note are the purple martins. This spring is the first time I've seen these well-respected feathered friends. Maybe it has something to do with having a bit rainier winter? Purple martins almost entirely nest in man-made bird houses. I unfortunately do not yet own a purple martin house, but my next door neighbors do, so I've been able to enjoy purple martin sightings. I'm hopeful that they are eating a bunch of pesty insects right now, especially the squash vine borer moths.
I also recently bought a Droll Yankee Nyjer seed feeder, as I wanted to attract more finches to the yard. The day after I put up the feeder, I immediately had goldfinches visiting. Needless to say, I'm pretty happy with the feeder results.
While not a new visitor this month, one of my favorite birds in the garden are the blue jays. Yes, they have a tendency to bully other birds, but aren't they just spectacular? So regal.
Other birds in the garden this month include many house sparrows, white-winged doves, blackbirds, one male and one female cardinal, a few Carolina wrens, and a male and female black-chinned hummingbird.
