Quiet time of the year......

It is that quiet time of the year.  Some walks recently there has been barely a bird in was a bit better...

this sort of sets the scene...there were few Mallards bathing very enthusiastically out past the logs.

 Steller's Jay were being quite active.....

This is one of 2 Northern Flicker hanging about the area.  There was also a Hairy Woodpecker that didn't come down low enough for a  photo.  The usual Song Sparrows, Spotted Towhee and Dark-eyed Junco were also about.

The Anna's Hummingbirds are busy setting up their territories....these hummingbirds nest several times a year starting in winter.  This guy quickly dive bombed another one that was near by.  Sounded like a screaming 747 as it whipped by.  Good job they aren't any bigger.
