I found myself thinking.."A bird did not just explode". "Something is popping the feathers off it"

edited to add:
Today the little hummingbird sat for a long time on my wind chime and preened himself. He was fluffing his feathers and cleaning his beak against the wind chime. I have never seen them do that before. It was quite interesting to watch this little fellow. I love that I can sit and play on my computer and watch his antics. I got pictures too.
I also saw a Catbird. The first one I have seen in 5 years and the first one in my current backyard. It, or one very much like it, has visited for the past 4 days..enjoying suet.
A pretty, sleek, medium sized bird...slate grey with a black cap. I heard it "meow". Yes, I was thrilled again.

The nest will be built.
New life will begin and I will be happy seeing those babys.
As I now have a baby, me wifey and I spend much more time at home.
I've been tracking the birds and have seen finches (house and yellow), cardinals, catbirds, mockingbirds, balckbirds, grackles, morning doves, blue jays, blue bird (once). chicadees, ruby throated hummingbirds and house sparrows. And some sort of wood pecker (red headed).
The one bird I hope to see is an Oriole. I've laid out grape jelly and oranges (per articles I found on the web), but nothing so far.
Hopefully soon though!
