Spring and Summer Birds are returning to the Old Parkdale Inn Gardens
Evening Grosbeak feeding in tray feeder

By Mary Pellegrini

We have many birds that spend the winter with us here in the gardens of the Old Parkdale Inn. We keep the feeders available to satisfy the finches, juncos, chickadees and nuthatches. Collared Doves, Towhee, Quail and a jay or two also frequent the seed blocks. The number of summer birds has been increasing and it’s nice to see the summer plumage returning on the Finches. I must confess though our favorite spring bird is the Evening Grosbeak. Such a stunning bird.
