The painter did not make much progress painting my house!
I'm hoping that she shows up tomorrow and is able to work for a couple of hours.

Mid-Month is a good time to review.

I was awash in Orange-crowned Warblers the first half of July.

Have the birds eating suet was a first for me.

I also had them hanging out in the hazelbrush...

...and this dead young Big Leaf Maple that makes up the hedgerow.

I also had another first.

Got to watch an adult OC Warbler feed a fledgling.

The OC Warblers are quietly colored. 

They don't shout out their presence.  

But they were around often enough that I was able to get several good photos.

What's up with other birds?
Well here's a handsome California Scrub Jay.

And here's a really homily young fledgling.  He looks bald doesn't he?

You are making progress on the bird feeder, Beth. The fledglings are interesting to view.

The soft colors of the OC Warbler are very pretty!

All your little birdies are so adorable. Thanks for sharing
