I split these photos out into their own post because there were so many of them...
In the last few weeks, we’ve made quite a habit of returning to this same loop past the icicles and over the logs, and while today wasn’t as much of a day for icicles as last time, it was much, much brighter out, so it was a better day for action photos.
Robins, apparently males staking out territory. While it’s rather early for them to be coming back from the south, it’s apparently a good risk for them to get the best territory.
Eastern Bluebird was chirping a slightly different song of territoriality. I almost missed him, with a breast so similar to the Robins’. Even though he was a bit more easily spooked than the Robins, he was kind enough to pause for a moment so I could snap a quick shot.
