Pussy-willows are a familiar sight in spring so I decided to pick a few of them and decorate the perches by our bird feeders. Here are some of our yard birds posing on these perches. When the pussy-willows first pop out, they are white and fuzzy like the ones in this photo. This bird is a White-throated Sparrow. It likes to feed on the ground so the perch is only about a foot high.
