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

Northern Flicker & Juvenile Wilson’s Warblers

It was a short and sunny backyard birding day today, although the sun was quite harsh I was still able to spot a few birds standing under tree shade.

Flickers are cool, they just are!  Their colors and mismatched patterned feathers make them really stand out from other birds. The ones I’ve seen around my yard are usually on the ground hunting for bugs and they usually don’t mind me taking a few photos if I stay in my place with very little movement.

Hiding under the trees in the shade also led to my first warblers captured on camera in my yard. I welcome the bright little ladies and hope to see them again soon, they are such a delight to watch as they hardly stand still for a second!
