For Feathers on Friday – I found a Flicker picture from a couple of days ago, he was singing on a cloudy grey day, Flicker Feathers on Friday 😉

This morning in the yard,… the main action was in the chokecherry tree where juvenile sparrows and waxwings were having breakfast.
Good morning waxy!
A new sighting in my yard this morning- a bird caught my eye and I couldn’t instantly recognize it. She was flying from tree to tree up high but the light color helped me to keep an eye on her until I could get a lock on her with my camera. It was a dark-eyed junco but I’ve never seen one in these lovely pastel colours before! One more for the yard list!
This summer, as I watch to see which birds are regular neighbors, I have noticed that the Red-breasted Nuthatches are here every day – but I have not seen any White-breasted Nuthatches at all. Today a flash of white caught my eye through the window and – yes! There was a handsome White-breasted Nutty poking around my bushes and checking out my feeder. I grabbed my camera and snuck outside and only managed to get a quick shot before he was gone – but it’s still exciting to know it’s possible to see them in my yard.
I’m very happy today because I had a nice backyard visit with a beautiful Northern Flicker. My feathered friend even posed for me and gave me great eye contact all while enjoying the beautiful warm day.
I’ve seen the Robins around the neighbourhood, but today I saw a good photo opportunity so snapped this (below). I like how he’s just resting in the cherry tree.
How sweet is this little singing Tennessee Warbler? She popped by to say hello, so tiny and lovely.
She posed so perfectly on the fence – I just had to take her portrait.
