Many thanks to Chris at Tot Hill Farm Stitches for gifting me with this chart and the "Free Betsy" chart.
I think this Steller's Jay could have been the model for the top bird in "United".
What do you think?
I am seeing more Oregon Juncos. They've raised their families so I have a mix of mature adults like this as well as newly-fledged kids.
I have anywhere from 6-10 American Goldfinches most days.
And this bird is one I see almost everyday.
It's a Song Sparrow that had some sort of close call and lost it's tail feathers.
For comparison, here's one with tail feathers.
I've been watching the Black-capped Chickadees with their insistent begging babies!
The adult comes to the back feeder and grabs a bite...
...and brings it back to the waiting fledgling.
Isn't this a sweet bird? And it's a New Bird too!
A MacGillivray Warbler. It was once common in this area, but is now less so. All About Birds describes it as 'furtive'.
I was very pleased that it came to my attention long enough for me to get a couple of photos.
