Yesterday's photos

Here are a few pictures from yesterday's yard activities!

Here is a Cooper's Hawk that landed in the yard a few times before succeeding in capturing a song bird (didn't see what species). I hate to see that kind of thing but the Hawk has to eat, too.

They really are gorgeous birds!

He couldn't seem to make up his mind on where to fly next.

A Red-Breasted Nuthatch. They just recently started coming back into the yard on a daily basis. These are one of my favorite backyard birds!

Very tame little guys, too! There were 3 of them hopping around our Mountain Ash tree all day.

One of the local Scrub Jays helping himself to some lunch. They have already started to bury their food already. Maybe we are in for an early winter??

Some Lesser Goldfinches just gathered around the water cooler.

I know it's almost impossible to tell, but this Black-Capped Chickadee is actually bathing in the Parasol. They use it to drink out of all the time but this was the first time we saw it used as a bath. How fun!
