Would someone please turn off the heat!!! Yesterday we spent the day in our shady yard, today it is even too hot for that. It is inside with the air conditioner....so no photos today but here are some from yesterday....
The Chestnut-backed Chickadees are a constant in the yard all day.
most of the youngsters are getting the hang of the peanut feeder but a couple of them still prefer mom or dad to feed them.
We could hear a fledgling of another sort....
and eventually this Dark-eyed Junco baby showed up with daddy.
here is another look at the little guy.
Lots of young Steller's Jay out there too. Other species seen but whose portraits didn't turn out (patio is so shady it is hard to get photos) were: House Finch, Purple Finch, Goldfinch, Pine Siskin, Spotted Towhee, Song Sparrow, White-crowned Sparrow, Eurasian Collared Dove and some Cedar Waxwing flying around the tree tops.
