WILDLIFE AT MY HOUSE THIS WEEK
I think he wants to come in. He comes up to the window and knocks. He wants more birdseed!
Here are a couple of his pals -- or maybe Momma and Poppa
We call this guy, Peg Leg. He has only one leg as you can see and has been with us about 6 months now. He is a Californian Towhee, (different from the Eastern Towhee).
Dozens of this cheeky bird -- the common house finch -- but such beautiful bright red color.
Either a juvenile or female hooded oriole. We don't get too many of these, so I was lucky to get this good shot.
Can you even see this one? His beak is in the flower and he is facing us. I think it may be a rufous humming bird, or a juvenile . It's so hard to tell the difference between the species at this time of year.
The guilty party who ate my young melon-colored hibiscus, which is now no more, thanks to him!
Though these may not be as exciting as some wildlife others get, remember we are only in a tract home, surrounded by houses in the midst of a city. A nice rural looking city, but still a city. My son only half an hour away can boast all of these as well as coyotes and a mountain lion!
