I've been meaning to start the "Wildlife" category for some time and the appearance of a flight of mallard ducks cruising through my yard has finally made me do it. Spring has sprung in B'game. The hummingbirds are out in force which surprises out of town guests who are not so lucky in the hummingbird department. Yesterday I also saw a huge tufted bluejay and a cute red-tufted woodpecker along with the usual chickadees.
Does anyone know what bird it is that feels the need to chirp at about 5:40 am every morning?
