April birding in Georgia

Today we had two beautiful male Rose-breasted Grosbeaks at the feeders. I wonder where the females were? They stayed for a long time and we got to enjoy watching them. We also had two Pine Siskins, 2 Mourning Doves, a Tufted Titmouse, a Carolina Chickadee and a couple of unidentified sparrows. I was alone, and tried to ID them, but could not. Too bad the boys weren’t with me, they would have definitely known!

Something else rather surprising happened today. A Pileated Woodpecker flew up on the deck. It actually flew to the window, grabbed hold of the screen and pecked at the window glass a few times. David had already heard it earlier in the day, pecking at the deck, and all of the boys were right at the window when it flew up, so they got an incredibly close look at it! That definitely goes on our list for “Season’s strangest sightings”!
