This morning I found two Ruby Crowned Kinglets at the back corner of our yard. This afternoon all at the same time there was a Chipping Sparrow along the back fence with Hermit Thrush and a Cardinal, a Robin tried to chase away the Thrush.
I am still looking at the pics of the Hermit Thrush it might be a different Thrush :-\

They must be a noisy crowd. I am always surprised how talktive Ruby crowned kinglets are.

This early in May it is probably either a Hermit thrush or a Veery. The Hermit has a rusty-coloured rump and tail while the Veery is kind of rusty on the back as well. I heard a Veery today in the woodlot here in western Pickering right next to the Rouge Park. I also heard a wren in the backyard while making dinner. My guess is that it was a House wren. I wonder if I'll hear it again tomorrow.
