|white breasted nuthatch|
I watched alot of birds here lately.The northern mockingbird looked frozen here ,& I feel so bad at only seeing the one.Remember how he hid in the brush when he first arrived,what,a month or so ago?,now he peers in at me when I`m preparing to walk the dogs.There is much barking going on before we go out the door,he watches from the feeder,only flying to the brush when we come out into the cold.
Also the goldfinches look like they are beginning to get their summer suits on,this one looks really more yellow.
I had to get my bird book out to ID the purple finch.I`m saying they are purple finches by looking at their tails.The purple finch has a forked tail,the house finch,a blunt,straight one.Such pretty colors!
Mom`s sister ,Aunt Irene,phoned me last night.She is the only one who really keeps in touch.I believe my cousin,Johnny,who lives with his mom,may show her my blog.Well,this blue jay is for you,Aunt Irene! I haven`t been seeing many because the hawks have been hunting here,they take a toll on the jay`s.The bluejay would not come out of the brush to come to the feeder,instead was ever watchful where they flew brush to brush getting where they wanted to go.
The whitebreasted nuthatch let me get a good one of him,& the crows were up to no good in the forest today.
