Birds in the bushes….

Today was a day for birds in the bushes…..lots of very active little birds…obviously migration is well underway!

Black-capped Chickadee

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 Kinglet

Ruby-crowned Kinglets – LOTS of Ruby-crowned Kinglets…

Chestnut-backed Chickadee

Chestnut-backed Chickadees…..


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….

Some cloud today

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! 

third heron in distance

and there you have it…there is one Great Blue Heron out there, and there were two more spread out in this same area…

Number two Heron, and an eagle

That was one of them…

One heron

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.

Red-breasted Nuthatch

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.
