Today was a day for birds in the bushes…..lots of very active little birds…obviously migration is well underway!
if you want to go slightly bonkers really quickly, just try taking pictures of Black-capped Chickadee’s (sorry, this is as good as it got)
Ruby-crowned Kinglets – LOTS of Ruby-crowned Kinglets…
and Bush Tits, LOTS of Bush Tits….all with one hand (the other one holding a bored Siberian husky). If I’d had two hands and had been using my DSLR I might have had a fighting chance…as it was it was more a matter of getting frustrated….
There was a bit of cloud cover today, but still no rain. According to our local paper, August and September are the driest in 105 years and if we don’t get rain soon, will have been the driest on record!
and there you have it…there is one Great Blue Heron out there, and there were two more spread out in this same area…
That was one of them…
and the third. Forgot to mention that there have been a number of Northern Flickers calling lately and I’ve caught sight of at least one hybrid (mixed Red-shafted and Gold-shafted) among them.
the Red-breasted Nuthatch continue, not just at my feeders but I could hear a number of them ‘honking’ high up in a large grove of evergreens as well.
