I've seen Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks out in the country before, but never in the city. So I was thrilled to see three in our front yard today! I even managed to photograph one. This is about the time of year they return, so they must be the first ones of the year! I hope they decide to stay in our yard, but I have a feeling that they will be gone tomorrow. I only saw males today. The females return a few days later. I hope some of the females will grace our yard with a visit too! The white-throated sparrows are still around. I see and hear several everyday.
Our neighbors' tulips have been blooming for a week or so now, but our first tulips bloomed today.
