Home and Away

.Our yards continue to get lots of visitors.

Carolina Chickadees, Northern Mockingbirds, House Finches and White-winged Doves never seem to leave, while Carolina Wrens have been apearing more often than usual.

Red-bellied Woodpeckers pop in now and then, but Downy Woodpeckers visit very regularly. The female always seem rather cautious as she approaches the suet feeder.

The male is usually bolder and flies straight onto the feeder.

Orange-crowned and Yellow-rumped Warblers continue to visit but I rarely get a chance to photograph them. Our Ruby-crowned Kinglet is much more obliging.

Dee and I are both still thrilled each time we get to see him close up.

When you read this, we'll be in San Francisco. It's mainly a work trip but Dee will be going with me and we're hoping to fit in some birding on Sunday. See you back here on Wednesday!
