Pumpkin Pie, Not

In the remains of a farmers Pumpkin field the crows found a feast. They are either eating the broken Pumpkin pieces or the grubs and bugs attracted by the Pumpkin. Hard to tell which.


On the Blacktop

Here’s another Costco Parking lot bird. This rather angry looking guy is a Brewer’s Blackbird (Euphagus cyanocephalus.) What a handle he has! I didn’t realize how much stuff was left by people until I got down to his level!!


Family Gathering

The cars zoom in and the cars zoom out. People walk by underneath, close. None of this family of Brewer’s Blackbirds (Euphagus cyanocephalus) seem to care at all. In the parking lot of Costco in Abbotsford there are a number of these trees. Almost each has some birds in it! Must be an old habitat for them!

A Cautious Eye

Here's that Coot again.  It has it's eye on a Bald Eagle in a near by tree!  I would too, if I were prey!
