What does a little bird think when it’s sitting wet and cold on the first day of it’s life when it’s rained! I think this little House Sparrows (Passer domesticus) expression says it all!


A New One

A brand new visitor to our bird bath. A fledgling European Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) This guy is probably only a week or so old. Once they get going they grow very fast.


In For Millet

A Black-headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus) drops into our yard from a nearby Cedar tree to enjoy the Millet that we put out for the birds. He’s a very handsome fellow!

In the Sun

Caught in a setting ray of the sun, a female House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) She’s standing on our birdbath surrounded by Columbine flowers.


Prime

DSCN3843.jpg

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!


Goldie

A dominant American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) male perched on a branch. I say dominant becuase he spends half his day chasing away other Goldies from the feeders in our yard!
