A pair of large goldfinches, Evening Grosbeaks, appeared in my yard this morning. In December 2012 I had a female which lingered until April 2013. They are highly unusual in San Diego County.
Yesterday the first of season Rufous Hummingbird showed up. Last year the bird showed up on the same date. I thought I’d been seeing a male Costa’s hummer for the last several days, and yesterday I got some pics of him, also.
