A Stellar’s Jay (Cyanocitta stelleri) on the birdbath in our yard. This is an adult in it’s prime, and has a wonderful full crest. It loves it’s peanuts and must have made off with at least a dozen out of the feeder!


Chick

A Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapilla) perches in the bushes with a Sunflower seed between it’s feet. It then pecked the seed open to get to the good stuff inside!

Nap

Somebody said “Nap” and they all agreed!  Except for the guy on the left.  He didn’t get the memo!  These Cackling Geese are standing on a submerged log.

The Cackling Geese are a subspecies of Canada Geese.  There was a large group of them on a local Pond.  Mixed in were a number of Aleutian Geese which are another subspecies.  The Cackling have small bills and a short neck.  The Aleutians are a bit large and have a white circle at the bottom of their necks.
