With my eyes barely open, I saw the birds busy outside the kitchen window this morning.
I’m not sure but I think these are Morgansers. They dive for food and seem to like it right in front of the dock.
There were a half dozen of these guys flying around. Noisy, but pretty.
The chickadees are always out there but today had to wait until the Bluejays flew off.
I had to look up his name as all I knew him as was a woodpecker. He is an adult male Hairy Woodpecker and we have them year round.
And of course in midst of it all, the local pileated showed up. I couldn’t get a great shot of him so I am adding a shot from a month ago.
Always entertaining to watch him on the feeder.
This is a Northern Cardinal and a big, wonderful surprise. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen one. I looked it up and they do not migrate. Also states that a male will fiercely protect it’s territory and will fight itself if it sees it’s own reflection. Well, that was my morning!!
