Yesterday for the first tie I saw Bushtits at our future home in Salem.  They hit the suet block and were gone quickly, typical of Bushtit frenetic genetic doings.

The today I noticed much towhee song.  Maybe it is because my new hearing aids are aides and aiding.  I have been noticing some towhee song around our former home in McMinnville as well.  Perhaps it is the heat that warms up their vocal cords?

Usually all I get out of thew towhees is their irritated buzzing sound from deep within some shrubbery or a berry thicket in the wild.  IO am beginning to really admire their more musical musings, however.
