A male Bushtit (Psaltriparus minimus) flew in with all his buddies to the Suet feeder, but decided to wait until it was less busy for his turn!



Here’s a cute little Bushtit (Psaltriparus minimus) in the bush. I have never seen one alone before. I guess this one got seperated from his flock. It flitted around this bush, calling and calling. It finally settled here and looked quite glum in the rain. It wasn’t long before it’s family flew in and they were united!

Little Visitor


Here’s one of our smallest birds, a Bushtit (Psaltriparus minimus.) It’s size even comes out in it’s scientific name! They travel in a group. Today we got about 8 at the suet feeder. They don’t stay long, only a minute and then they are gone! To me they look like the original angry bird!

Small & Speedy


A pretty little Bushtit (Psaltriparus minimus). One of our smallest birds. These guys weight in at a whopping 5.3 grams. Chickadees tip the scale at 11 grams. These guys drop in for a visit once in awhile. They are very flock oriented. This mornings flock was about 15 birds. They fly in fast hit the suet and are gone again in about 10 seconds flat!
