Here’s an archive shot from a couple of years back that I’ve always liked!  A pair of Mallard drakes, Anas platyrhychos.

This pretty Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus) has become a regular visitor to our suet feeder.


At Ease

I haven’t had a Stellar’s for awhile. Here is one of our troop. We have five regulars that visit every day and relieve us of a bag of peanuts. A Stellar’s Jay (Cyanocitta stelleri) or Scruffy, if you like!


Towhee

A immature Spotted Towhee (Pipilo maculatus) takens advantage of a saucer full of Niger seed in our garden. We have been watching this bird grow up all summer. It is finally beginning to look like a Towhee!
