Penny Swanson reports that she had her first male Baltimore oriole at her nectar feeder on Tuesday, and the singing also announced the first house wren in her yard this year. Two chipping sparrows were also seen picking at grain on the patio on Monday. Chickadees have finally taken to building a nest in one of my hanging houses. Not bad, she says, for not even leaving the house.
