The male Lesser Goldfinches are still bright and cheery.

It's nice to have a splash of color.

Then there are the Steller's Jays.

Not only are they colorful, but they are LOUD!

That bright eye is indicative of just how smart they are.

The Oregon Juncos are back in full force.

I counted over a dozen Friday morning.,

They are generally ground feeders...

...but will come to the deer fence feeders to eat.

That's also what this handsome Fox Sparrow is doing.  Generally a ground feeder, he's willing to hop up on the deer fence and get a quick and easy bite.

Goldfinches continue to be present.

I saw a couple of Pine Siskins too, but was not able to get a photo.

Enjoy! 









That tongue!


If you've got an itch - scratch it!

Thanksgiving is a week away - it will be a very different day this year.
Still trying to work out a meal for four - seems harder than a meal for 12 or more...

The Raven flew in.

Looked to the right.

Looked to the left.

And then took off again.
