I was completely and utterly distracted for a while today by the birds outside of my window. At first I noticed them because they were leering in at me and giving me the stink eye since our bird feeder was empty.
I present to you, for the record --- the birds that showed up at the newly re-filled bird feeder, plus those hanging around on nearby trees -
|Northern Flicker. (There was a male and a female, actually.)|
|Is that a Winter Wren?|
|This Junco photo made me laugh...he was looking up the tree...|
|Downy Woodpecker, I think, and a Flicker|
I'm hoping to get pictures of the other birds that turn up along Little Swamp Creek as the seasons change. I'm thinking that would be a good thing to document.
By the way, I'm starting to keep my eye on this Red-Tailed Hawk's nest in the wetland behind our yard. We usually start seeing action there by mid-winter or so...
