Good, old robin redbreast, the harbinger of spring! Nothing like seeing your first Robin after a nasty 'El Nino' Winter.

These guys don't pay much attention to the feeders, but they love it when you start breaking ground for planting and stir up all the earthworms. They also a fond of taking frequent baths in our bird bath.
