Here's an Easterish stitch of a little bird - a yellow baby chick.
And here's my littlest bird, a male Rufous Hummingbird refusing to cede ground to the Song Sparrow.
On Wednesday I saw a couple of Chestnut-backed Chickadees, but no photos.
I did get photos of my Black-capped Chickadees. I'm hopeful that they will use one or two of my birdhouses to nest this year.
I continue to put out "bark butter" as my small flock of Bushtits show up most days and they like it...
Dark eye = male
Light eye = female.
Look at how little the Bushtits are in comparison to another small bird, a Dark-eyed Junco.
The Lesser Goldfinches are small birds too.
Smaller and slighter than American Goldfinches.
I did have a single male American Goldfinch come by for a couple of days.
I had hope that he was the 'scout' for a larger group of birds to follow.
But now I've not seen any for several days.
