Today was exciting at our feeder.
Besides the wonderful regulars of Red Breasted Nuthatches, two kinds of Chickadees and Juncos, a new visitor was a Black Headed Grosbeak, a new bird for my list.
He came back often and posed for me. These shots are taken from my living room chair, which is across the room from the feeder, and the feeder is out on the lawn, with the deck in between the feeder and the house. I have the planters arranged on the railings so I can see the feeder tree from my chair - that way I don't frighten the birds by getting up to stand by the window when they land on the feeder.
They can sure get in the strangest poses while trying to find the best tidbits in the feeder.
He was back many times during the day
The female came too - but not as often
And some other birds we saw on a recent drive through the country. The middle one is a Savannah Sparrow, a new one for me. I've seen roosters and turkeys before.
