Although I live in chickadee country, I have not seen chickadees at my feeders for eight or nine years. This is one of two that have started visiting in the last three weeks. I hope they continue visiting.
A Red-breasted Nuthatch picks a seed from a feeder.
A House Finch looks to make sure the coast is clear before going to the feeder.
A Blue Jay picks a seed from a feeder before taking it up to a branch to break open and eat.
There are many sticks in the world. This is my stick, therefore this is the best stick in the world.
It is good to see our dogs playing.
This Great Blue Heron rested on a pile of reeds.
A House Finch visits a sunflower feeder.
Although the weather is good, and Project FeederWatch starts about a month from now, I want to ensure that the songbirds know they can count on an at least a partial meal here.
Late summer blooms.
