One of the local gang. These little guys are year round residents, and I’m glad they are. They are such pretty little things. According to my book, a House Finch is 12-15 cm long, weighs in at a whopping 16-27 grams and has a life span of up to 12 years. Amazing!
After waiting and watching for a month, I finally got a shot of the male Rufous Hummingbird. I think this one is my best of a hummer, so far. He sat so regally on this branch. He was on lookout, chasing another male away from his area, then back to the perch.
Today’s juvenile Brewer’s Blackbird is successful in getting Dad to give it something to eat. This young guy is old enough to hunt and peck for himself, but it’s always nice to get a touch from the old man!
