Yesterday held some nice opportunities to use the backyard blind. A tiny backyard, surrounded on all sides by houses, and many more houses, and just now getting more popular with the birds with the help of spring. Many new yard birds including White-throated Sparrows, Yellow-rumped and Palm Warblers.

" I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn."
- Henry David Thoreau
