A female Northern Shoveler (Anas clypeata) afloat in a pond covered in reflections from the surrounding trees and undergrowth!
I love reflections!
A Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) away from the water. It’s unusual to see them on dry land, for me anyway! Perhaps it was hunting mice!
An Immature male Black-headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus) flew in a couple of days ago. He is still looking quite confused as to what he’s supposed to do. Usually when he flies in, the little bird fly away and leave him to guess at his next move. He’ll soon catch on!
A Black-capped Chickadee
Here’s an American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) getting photobombed by a like bird.
A male Black-headed Grosbeak ( Pheucticus melanocephalus) contemplating, well, me!
Not quite grasping the reason for this water feature, the cement birds make a good perch, as this juvenile American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) will attest!
