We've several pairs of Purple finches visiting the feeders, as well.
Mourning doves have been frequent fliers, as are the red-wings and the grackles!
I spotted a Turkey vulture Sunday. First one this year!

I collected the fur from the cats, and put it out in a basket. The first one was a bit of a failure!
The enclosed suet feeder is better!
Hubby went out to fill the feeder for me. I asked him to put some of the fur in Fat Head's mouth, just for fun! That didn't last long. The woodpecker decided that there was still some suet left in the back of Fat Head's mouth and she whipped that out.
Cats are happy to be outdoors. We've had our first bird kills of the year: last week the cats got two chickadees. Fortunately, we have a sturdy population of chickadees.
Primrose are peeking through the leaves!
