I've got two males and a female visiting the garden now.
The female doesn't use the feeder but both males do. The males used to spend all day fighting but now they seem to tolerate each other.
The rabbits visit every evening, just before dark. They come right up to the window and munch on my wildflowers.
Flocks of robins gather in the garden in the evenings as well. I think they are fattening up for their trip north.
Birds are on the move all over. Whistling duck flyover at Riverbend:
Here's a video of the three males on the feeder:
There are also two pairs of cardinals . They seem to have divided up the territory; one pair lives in the front yard and one in the back. It would be nice if they both nested nearby, but they fight over the bird feeders. Once the hummingbirds leave for the summer I will put another feeder out front for them.
It's been warm again this week. Looking forward to seeing more snakes! Might go check out some of my favorite snakey places soon.
