I didn't have a post ready for today - then when I was cooking breakfast I saw a movement out the window. And this is what I saw at the neighbor's feeders.
Black Headed Grosbeak female
There were two - they took turn picking seeds.
Not sure what the white layer is on the suet cake - it is definitely not snow
Then a black squirrel came along and frightened the birds away. It looks like he is wearing the feeder as a saddle
This pretty bird was there too - a little more timid than the Grosbeaks. I'm not sure what bird this is. Any help?
And then the bossy Stellar Jay - gorgeous feathers. One of the best shots I've gotten of a Jay
I love their blue "eyebrows"
