On the Blacktop


Here’s another Costco Parking lot bird. This rather angry looking guy is a Brewer’s Blackbird (Euphagus cyanocephalus.) What a handle he has! I didn’t realize how much stuff was left by people until I got down to his level!!

Family Gathering


The cars zoom in and the cars zoom out. People walk by underneath, close. None of this family of Brewer’s Blackbirds (Euphagus cyanocephalus) seem to care at all. In the parking lot of Costco in Abbotsford there are a number of these trees. Almost each has some birds in it! Must be an old habitat for them!

Corn, Anyone!

One day last week we were visited by the juvenile Red-winged Blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus.) It stuck around for a few hours and then went on it’s way. First time to see one in our yard.

On Watch
