Here’s Eight Mallards (Anas platyrhychos), four pair, four male, four females. All were asleep with their heads down. Something made a noise and all the males popped up. Females weren’t bothered and kept sleeping! Who has their priorities right!
A very pretty Song Sparrow (Melospiza melodia)
A male Spotted Towhee (Pipilo maculatus)
This bright little lady, an Anna’s Hummingbird ( Calypte anna) is a regular visitor to our sheltered feeders! Her mate is around here too! Hardy little birds in the cold!
A Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapilla) hunting for bugs under the bark of a branch
A male House Sparrow (Passer domesticus)
Here’s a fine European Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) in it’s winter coat of colours. Only problem is that it only has one leg! But that hasn’t seemed to slow it down at all!
