A lovely American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) perched in the Cedar tree in our backyard.
A Stellar’s Jay (Cyanocitta stelleri) is focused on the peanuts I put on the patio table. This is a new one as It wouldn’t come in while we were there! Old Scruffy would have been right in there!
A Golden-crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia atricapilla) checking things out over the grass in our backyard! And, yes, I’ve cut the grass since then!
A Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis)
Here’s a Stellar’s Jay (Cyanocitta stelleri) having a bad hair day, thanks to the wind! It’s sitting in our Empress tree. The brown objects are flower buds which have been on the tree all winter and will soon bloom in lovely purple flowers!
A White-crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys) perched on the top branch of a Jasmine bush in our backyard. We have had these guys in the yard all winter. In the last week or so their crowns have changed from a first winter brown to the adult white and black! They are all still here, at least 10 of them and they are all proud as punch
A Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus) female. I’m glad to see this female around. She been away. Maybe now the male, her mate, will quite banging on our chimney!
