Confused

An Immature male Black-headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus) flew in a couple of days ago. He is still looking quite confused as to what he’s supposed to do. Usually when he flies in, the little bird fly away and leave him to guess at his next move. He’ll soon catch on!

Not quite grasping the reason for this water feature, the cement birds make a good perch, as this juvenile American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) will attest!

Spot of Tea

Here’s our buddy the juvenile Stellar’s Jay (Calypte anna), in for a spot of Tea! ┬áMy wife has set several cups and saucers around the yard. They are on posts. Some have water in them, some have seed! The birds seem to enjoy them as there’s always someone on them!

Here’s my Hummer of the day! I almost feel like apologizing for all the Hummers, but they are going mad with the Crocosmias and I have to follow suite!

This is a Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) female.
