Maybe it's just me, but there seem to be quite a few of these around this year. Usually I only spot a couple each year in my yard, but I am seeing them much more frequently and in other locations. Anyone know if their numbers are actually up?
Delightful images, Danny.... somehow missed these before. I've seen them in usual numbers for the areas one would expect to see them but can't say I'm seeing unusual numbers this year.
Thanks Joanne. Saw a couple in my yard just yesterday; maybe they nested nearby. The photos are from UNB woodlot, and could be two different birds, don't know.
They nest in or near my yard as well, Danny. The thing this time of year is that one can run into family groups.
