Just my pretty birds in my yard today. My Flicker comes to visit me. He brings a friend sometimes. He is getting braver and sleeps in this tree. He looks at my camera but does not leave now. Usually announces his arrival with a piercing call for everyone to hear. His wings make a lovely noise.
He likes the fat and peanuts.
Towhee is always singing and dancing. I think she was born in the bushes by my fence. She runs and hides in there if things get too wild at the feeder.
Oh and she has discovered she can fly up and feed from the feeder dish. She is supposed to be a ground feeder. She talks to herself constantly. She finds sunflower seeds under the feeder and does a little dance.
We have so many Chickadees and Juncos....must be the year for them.
They like to steal a sunflower seed and hide it in the tree for later. I took all these pictures last week out in my garden. The weather has been very warm and sunny here on Vancouver Island.
We also have a lot of Nuthatches. They always make a lot of beep beep noises or is it "neep neep". They love peanuts. Fast moving and always have a busy schedule, storing food.
Here is a Golden Crowned below. We have a few at the feeder..I love their song. Sometimes they sing "oh poor me". I like to hear it in the
morning. Really starts my day right.
A Downy Woodpecker below...we used to have a lot of them but not as many are coming this year or perhaps I just am not there when they arrive. Last year we had a family of them that lived at our feeder and would not bother to leave even if I was standing right there.
Female Blackbird below. I don't mind when they come in...they have to eat something as well. Sometimes they bring their boyfriends with them...
the males are pretty. They can have a noisy party at the feeder. I hope you have enjoyed this visit to my backyard and my pretty birds.
It is "P" Week at the ABC Meme for my Pretty Birds.
I hope you all have a great week. I am enjoying reading blogs more than writing one lately so I am going through a silent phase in my blog world.
I will get back to my schedule as soon as the weather turns to rain. Thanks so much for visiting me.
