Songbirds

I am using the term songbirds, to loosely describe today’s subject. An
ornithologist might well take issue with some of the birds you see
below, being described as such. I include hummingbirds, swallows,
woodpeckers and more in this post.

For those of you who live in the northland, we will soon be in peak
season for the arrival of migratory songbirds.  Of course, some of
them are brave enough to call Wisconsin a yearly home, or even a
winter home before they head even farther north.

Below you find a wide variety of types of images. I threw them (the
photos not the birds) against the wall and I will share what stuck.

Immature American Robin. This is my homeland of Wisconsin’s state bird.
