Spring Birds At Springbrook-Pileated to Indigo Bunting
She had a large scaley broodpatch, so she has a nest somewhere in Springbrook.
These vireos will be nesting at Springbrook very soon.
The yellow around and above the eye is very distinctive and identifies this sparrow.
The crest seems to be raised and lowered constantly depending on the bird's mood at the moment.
Here it is raised and down below it is lowered.
This is a male, and the females are very brown and camouflaged. They will be setting up nest sites in Springbrook in the next few weeks.
The band can be seen on the right leg of this Indigo Bunting, as it is about to be released.
