  • My Mom's Feathered Friends

    Hi everyone. Well this year my mom has got all sorts of birds visiting her yard. We sit on the deck and watch and take pictures. I'll update as I get a new bird to share, from rare to common birds. By the way, if I mislabel a bird, feel free to to point it out, but I expect a link to your proof.

    Let's get started.

    Steller's Jay



    American Crow (Mom has named him Crackers, I'm naming the next one Drinky)



    Goldfinches! We have never seen these in the yard before.





    I love the look on this one's face. WTF?!?!





    Another Goldfinch and a House Finch



    These 2 also excited us.

    An Evening Grosbeak



    And a Blackheaded Grosbeak. I thought this one was a Towhee, until I researched it more. We've seen Towhees as well, but I don't have a good picture yet.



    That's it for now, but I will continue to update as new birds appear and I get better pictures of some of the others.

    These are great!
    Very colorful...

    We have wild parrots where I live. They make all kinds of noise at dawn and dusk.
    And a few hummingbirds and finches and crows, of course.
    How much do we have to pay to get MiceChat Old?

          Nice pictures. Sounds like a real nice back yard. Right now in my backyard there is an eagle fishing everynight now around the same time, when the sun in setting. He is a good fisherman also, always goes to the tree with his catch of the day.

              That's great - we just have robins, crows and an occasional magpie - they're all loud and annoying.

                Funny story. My Aunt and Uncle have a place on Hood Canal and one time their neighbor was cooking a prime rib on the grill outside. The neighbor went inside for something and this Eagle flew down and grabbed the beef and flew off with it. Since then they have called the eagle Angus.

                    Several years ago when I was out in Montana we saw lots of Pelicans and Seagulls in Great Falls. They were hanging out on the river.

                      A lot of these birds we have never noticed before. My mom has been feeding the birds like crazy over the winter and they are really starting to show up. I figure by this time next year penguins might start appearing.

                        Such a better variety then the birds around here. We just have crows, doves, seagulls and sparrows. The seagullas don't come near the house though, there is too much good food at the high school. We'll get about 25-50 sparrows in our trees and bushes and they'll have bird parties, where they tweet and chirp up a storm at set times every time (used to be at 6 AM and 6 PM), very annoying.

                            Woo-hoo! We made the round-up. I'll have to go to Mom's tomorrow to sit on the porch with the camera and see if I can add a few new bird pictures.

                              Gah! The fountain in my parents backyard is down so the birds are not around as much today. I only got a House Sparrow to share. He is eating some old triscuits my mom threw out in the grass.
