Here’s Scruffy. A Stellar’s Jay (Cyanocitta stelleri) Like all Jays, it is a rascal. Here it’s in the Fuchsia flower pot hanging on our deck, right over there by the hummingbird feeder. It’s hiding peanuts there. Trying to be stealthfull, it’s anything but!
A European Starling (Sturnus vulgaris), or Common Starling in the neighbours Cherry tree.
A Black-capped Chickadee
A pair of Eurasian Collared Doves (Streptopelia decaocto) taking a stroll across our garden.
A pretty female Rufous Hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus) checking out the bud of a Crocosmia flower. I’ve noticed that the bird punctures the bud to get it’s bill right inside the flower.
To all my friends, I apologize for not being in touch, posting and replying to comments. I’ve been under the weather for a week. I hope the worst is over. Thank you for your indulgence!
A young male Anna’s Hummingbird on the Crocosmia. He is just getting the colour on his goret! Here he looks so intense!
Here’s our buddy the juvenile Stellar’s Jay (Calypte anna), in for a spot of Tea! My wife has set several cups and saucers around the yard. They are on posts. Some have water in them, some have seed! The birds seem to enjoy them as there’s always someone on them!
