Wilson’s Warbler, Red-Breasted Nuthatch, Dark-Eyed Juncos & White Crowned Sparrow

I woke up thinking “I’ll take a walk today around the block and see what’s visiting today…” so I did…

This might be the final Wilson's Warbler I'll see this year since migration has slowed and its been a number of days since I saw the last one...

I’m walking through the treed area now …

Is that a Dark-eyed Junco I spy?

I think Dark-Eyed Juncos are SO beautiful… the contrast of their colors and eyes… quite stunning and yet – also – cute!

Birds, Glorious Birds

I am VERY excited today! I have had more birds in my yard and was able to capture most of them on my camera.  I was SUPER excited to see this Beautiful Bandit (Cedar Waxwing) in my Mayday tree from the kitchen window… I was able to sneak out fast enough to get this shot below.  What a magnificent bird, and what a treat to see him here! I hope that means there will be more!

I also had a few silent moments with a Crow, she was so pretty with brown feathers on her head… likely a juvie, but just staring into those eyes, knowing how intelligent they are, I just couldn’t help but wonder what she was thinking.

A couple of Pine Siskins were hanging around the Mayday tree near the sparrows, they are so small and move so quickly that it’s not easy to see the yellow feathers tucked in their wings.

I’d say this was a great day for backyard birding!
