The birds are back in town...

We feed the birds year-round, but this time of year they get crazy. The sparrows are a bit annoying, but the others make up for that. Bug can identify all of the birds that come to our feeders. She learned them just by me pointing them out to her. We saw a new bird yesterday....a female Norther "Yellow Shafted" Flicker. We were quite excited, but didn't have the camera nearby. Hopefully it'll come again. We've also got a Red-bellied Woodpecker who stops by a few times each day, but doesn't stay for long. Hopefully we'll get a photo soon. We've also see a couple of Juncos the past couple of days.

Here's what I saw this morning: a female Hairy Woodpecker. (we've got a pair of these that stop by)

A female downy woodpecker. (we've got a pair of these, too)

A Black-Capped Chickadee. A brave/friendly bird. This is the bird most likely to come to the feeder while I'm filling another feeder.

The "sparrow tree". We get up to 3 dozen sparrows in/under this tree at times.

My bird-watching companion, Purrl. She's lying in her bed. It's her favorite spot in the house.
