About 1 1/2 miles from our house, the trees that edge swampy fields ring with the sound of Red-winged Blackbirds. I rarely see them at home, though we do have lots of water (creeks) on our property.
My flock of Evening Grosbeaks continues to grow.
These two females were hanging out together. I cannot help but wonder if they aren't a mother /daughter combo from summer 2016.
A female Flicker - I enlarged this photo as I was taken with the complexity of the length of the black tail feathers. Long, short, short, short, long...
Still lots of Black-capped Chickadees. I watched a pair check out a birdhouse the other evening - I'm hopeful that I'll get to watch a nesting pair.
A Towhee singing his heart out. The Towhee's have a very pretty song, but somehow with those bright red eyes, they end up looking rather demented.
The Bushtits have paired up and should be looking at nesting sights.
They build an amazing hanging nest.
