Alfred Hitchcock would be proud of me. All these birds and all, though I don’t think any of them will be causing panic, death and destruction like in that movie of his.
What is THAT??? It took me about half an hour on the internet trying to figure it out! Turns out to be a Red Breasted Grossbeak!
That was cool. This whole bird watching thing might turn out to be something I can get into! It’s kind of fun having something you’ve never seen before fly in.
We have several Cardinal pairs in the area and here is finally a picture of one of the females. Ain’t she purty?
And a woodpecker sighting! This is the Downy Woodpecker, it is much smaller than the Red Bellied Woodpecker I saw a few days ago so I’m still on the hunt for that one. There are several of these Downy Woodpeckers around…they are cute.
…a straggler Junco…not yet on his way to Canada…
Wasn’t that fun? There’s still more that haven’t shown up at the feeders yet so I’m keeping my out for the Gold Finch and the Blue Jay. I did see a Gold Finch in the park so I know it is only a matter of time. Hmmm, I wonder what else is out there!
Inspiration everywhere, even in the backyard!
