At Ease

IMG_0262.jpg

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!


In for a Bath

Here’s a special visitor to our birdbath. Listed as Rare in this area, this Western Scrub Jay ( Aphelocoma californica) quite enjoyed its bath! Time for some suet and it was off again. We had it here a couple of time this past summer and I’m very pleased to see it back. Known to hang out around the Aldergrove Athletic Park. We are only a couple of houses from there!


Bath Time

A European Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) on the bird bath. These guys are nuts about bathing. They get in and have a great old splash around, then hurry away, wings heavy with water!


Flicker

A red-shafted Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus) female at the birdbath in our garden. She is such a beautiful bird.

To all my friends, I have been under the weather for the past few days and haven’t been posting. I’m hoping the worst is over!


What’s Up

A pair of European Starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) at the bird bath. These guys love their baths, even in below zero temperatures.


Grey Squirrel

Here’s a little critter who is quite at home in our yard. She’s been around for a few years now. Although she’s black, she’s a grey squirrel. There seems to be more black ones than grey. Here she’s on the bird bath having a drink.


Sisters?

Here’s a couple of juvenile House Finches on the bird bath. ¬†They are this years birds and could well be sisters, but there’s lots of them around right now.

Here’s the link to my other Blog with another shot of these two!
