Backyard birds online again

2019_08_19__Summer 2019_0084

Since early June I’ve been off the trail more than on it! Two months have passed in what  has been a very busy summer, and I have chronicled very little of it. Shame on me! So to get started again, I am posting a few pictures from my backyard birding collection, starting with a few hummers who stopped by the feeders yesterday:

Like the hummingbirds, the pileated woodpeckers, both male and female, have visited every day for weeks, early morning, again at lunchtime, and finally in the evening. Take a look:

And yesterday the bird featured at the top of this post and also below made an appearance. The bluejay I recognize, by sight and sound, but the other bird is not a regular at my backyard feeders, so I’m not sure what it is. Can someone please tell me?

That’s all for today, Trail Walkers.
See you soon!

  1. Your bird is a European starling. If you don’t get them regularly, you are lucky. They are an invasive species. It is either a young bird or one just transitioning to nonbreeding plumage.


  2. As always, I enjoy all your photos and do know what you mean about having a busy summer. We have too! Had to shut off my comments on Blip because I have no time to reply back even though I’m still posting pictures. Your backyard is a wonderful haven.

    1. Hello Camille. Great to get a comment when it has been such a long time since I posted anything. Painting, removing wallpaper, etc, etc. have taken up a lot of our summer. We did get away for a family vacation for a week, and I will post some pictures from that soon. Thanks for stopping by today.


    1. Hi Linda. Thanks for stopping by. I have been much too busy this summer, and even though summer is winding down (I know because the school buses are coming down the street), I still seem to be way too busy. I have lots of pictures to post. Hopefully I will get caught up in the month ahead.
