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!


Sunday Hum

Another shot of the Hummer series. A female Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) catches the sun as she sits on a branch of our Butterfly bush.


Piney

A Pine Siskin (Spinus pinus) in a small tray feeder my wife has loaded with Niger Seed. These guys love it along with the Goldfinches! The blue background is thanks to the neigbours blue playhouse for his daughter!
