The young Blue Jay, still unnerved by other birds, is watched cautiously by the humorous Mourning Dove, who in my opinion, looks like a cartoon character.
The White-breasted Nuthatch isn’t really a people person. She makes quick and swift flights to the seed feeder and flies away with an individual seed. She’ll come back after a few minutes to grab another single seed and fly away.
I actually do not know if this is a male or female. They look the same. I do know they fly with the Chickadees, they flock together. There is always 2 or 3 chickadees that swoop in right after Nuthatch stops by. They are always together. Such a cute crew! I love them.
I love this guy. He always sidles around the deck, and gives me the side-eye. I love him.
He loves suet the best. He doesn’t go for the seed too much.
Here is his wife. 🙂 She doesn’t have the red spot on her head. And she sidles too.
She’s beautiful, isn’t she?
Fierce looking and with rusty brown tail feathers. This Hawk steals my heart.
