New Additions

Late April and early May in Maryland. Last updated: 5/2/2012.

Above and below: A migrant Indigo Bunting stops to refuel in our yard in Pasadena, Maryland (5/2/2012). Plumage and molt details make this a second-year (SY) male, which means he was born last summer. Since then he traveled roughly 2,000 miles (each way) to winter in Central America or the Caribbean. Awesome.

Below: A White-breasted Nuthatch visits our yard in Pasadena, Maryland (4/29/2012). Uncommon in our yard from April through September. Essentially a winter resident in our yard, though the species breeds at Fort Smallwood. Perhaps they'll nest a little closer this year and stay on for the summer.

Below: Lingering White-throated Sparrows - Anne Arundel Co., Maryland (4/27/2012).

Below: More posing White-throated Sparrows - Anne Arundel Co., Maryland (4/29/2012).
