Northern Flicker lookin’ pretty

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.

It’s a Lifer (feeling spoiled this summer) Tennessee Warbler

I’m feeling blessed to have seen so many birds in my own backyard this summer… especially ones I’ve never seen before, such as the case with this little Tennessee Warbler who flitted about my trees for a couple of days – just long enough for me to snap a few shots and ID another lifer :)
