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!

They’re back!

I glanced out the kitchen window this morning and was delighted to see the first hummingbird of the season at the feeder. Our weather is still cloudy and cool, and it doesn’t feel like May, or at least not like I think May should feel, but the hummers are back, and that makes all the difference.
