The goldfinches finally found the Nyjer seed. There are eight of them in this photo (counting the one in flight and NOT counting the bottom right which is a house finch). I counted eleven at one point this afternoon. They have consumed more than 6" of the seed in less than 24 hours.
The humming birds found the patio decoration my sister gave me earlier this year.
The California Towhee found the little bit of seed I threw down just for him.
This humming bird has been taking a drink from our water fountain. Sorry, I had to shoot it through the patio window.
Bailey decided he ought to be flaunting his new sleek, slim, svelte self, if the birds were going to get all the attention.
wrentit visit us. He has a loud and beautiful song and this is the first time he has visited. I was able to make a good identification of him once he came out of the bushes. They are quite shy in spite of their loud song and they seem to be quite rare, being found only along the California and Oregon coast line. My new goal will have to be to get my own photo. This will not be easy as they hide in the shrubbery and rarely come out. But I think our waterfall attracted him. Unlike the fountain, it is set back in the bushes.
