I just spotted a female Pine Warbler yesterday (the 2nd of February) sitting on the windowsill eating a seed. From what I understand, they overwinter a bit south of here (very southern Virginia and into the Carolina’s etc) but right when early February rolls around they return to just north of their wintering range – which is basically right where I am. Cool! I wonder if she had just arrived.

Red-eyed Vireo

This bird serenades me for HOURS when I'm working in my garden. Now I understand why... it's known as a tireless songster.

Northern Mockingbird

I have a friend, that shall remain nameless, that told me he and his friend did (some kind of mind altering substance) one night and listened to the mockingbird that was singing all night long, and they can confirm that it definitely NEVER repeats the same pattern EVER.

Eastern Phoebe

The Phoebe is the first bird to welcome very early spring where I live. Although they overwinter here, they are pretty quiet, but as soon as the weather warms just a tad, you will hear "FEEbee...FEEbee" all morning long.

Prairie Warbler

This lil' guy has a song that starts shrill, increases up the scale, and finishes beyond human hearing.
