A Northern Pintail (Acer acuta) looking very handsome as he swims through some greenery on the water.
Canada Geese (Branta canadensis) coming in for a landing at the local hangout.
Two pair of Mallards (Anas platyrhychos) Probably the most familiar duck in the world. They are litterally everywhere and do pretty well everywhere they go.
Here’s a new boy to the neighbourhood. The weather has been mild so he may be checking out other yards, as they stay pretty close to their feeders this time of the year. He’s a rather stern looking Anna’s Hummingbird male, (Calypte anna) and he’s perched on a Rose of Sharon Bush.
A pretty orange morph female House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) perches in a Japanese Maple in the rain.
Sitting on the roof of a birdhouse is a Northwest Song Sparrow (Melospiza melodia)
Here’s my fearless male Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna). He’s braved the wind and rain and snow and ice and is still with us.
