Pics from the yard

Here are some recent photos taken from the yard. We hope you like them!

A Pine Siskin eating from a thistle sock

We are still getting 5-10 Siskins in the yard everyday

Note: Left bottom: Ashley, one of our Cocker Spaniels; Top Right: Sharp-Sinned Hawk (look close)! They seem to both be watching something very interesting!

A Male House Finch enjoying the apple tree

A Male Brown-Headed Cowbird. He, and the female, have been in the yard and on the feeders for the last week or so.

Okay, so this was not in the backyard. This was in the parking lot of the Clackamas County Fairgrounds on Sat. the 3rd of May. By the way that they were acting, we are sure that they are nesting around the gravel lot

A Chestnut-Backed Chickadee, stopping by to get nesting materials! He was using lint from our drier! How cool!

A Canada Goose Golsing, telling me to "back off"!

A pair of Bushtits

Calliope Hummingbird! We were so excited when we saw him!

Female Ann's in one of our apple trees~

Thanks for sharing. I enjoy seeing what others see in their backyards.

More great pics!

I filled a suet feeder w/lint from our drier & it was gone in record time. I especially put it out there because it was mostly full of pet hair from washing the cat & dog beds. Cute to see the gathering in action!
