Yes, I do love the birds. (Well, most of them anyway.) Some pictures from the past few days. First, a bird I haven’t seen yet this year, although I have supplied yummy, fresh syrup and gorgeous floral surroundings:
The chipping sparrows have been regular visitors at the feeder, and actually seem to like feeding on the leftovers on the ground even better. What good little Hoovers! Note: Looking at this post again, the chipping sparrow doesn’t have those stripes. Is this a song sparrow? I’m so hopeless…
And what is this bird??? I’ve been learning birds one at a time, as they come and visit and I snap a picture. Is this a grosbeak? Bigger than the goldfinches and sparrows. My best guesses from my bird book was a grosbeak or a blue bunting. Actually, a female blue grosbeak seems most likely. Help?
On a little field trip I took myself on, I saw this majestic fellow. I only wish I could have been closer:
Yup, a bald eagle. At least I can identifyf this guy!
That’s it for now.
