"So, how are things at the feeder these days?"
Glad you asked.
Here are a few of the latest pix.
We know him very well now. This is Mr. Indigo Bunting. We saw the Missus the other day, but she is rarely spotted. Actually, there are quite a few males. I believe the females are nesting.
Probably our Purple Finch, Mister.
The Hummingbirds are around, now that I have put out feeders for them.
There is one immediately outside my window next to the desk where I am working.
On my way to get mail yesterday I caught Mr. Red-Breasted Grosbeak in flight, in both senses of the word.
Mr. Pewee likes to supervise, with much tail bobbing. He never seems to eat, oddly.
Again, Mr. Ruby Throated Hummingbird or Archilochus colubris.
He is quite festively iridescent. I’ll try to catch his bright red throat band in the sunlight.
A feeder thug is the Blue Jay or Cyanocitta cristata. Very aggressive.
I have seen a couple Orioles today, but they are elusive and seem to no when the camera is out of reach.
