We are lucky to have so many different birds visit our feeders. And a little walk in the woods gives us glimpses of many more. The weather here has been hot and the birds have been active.
White-breasted Nuthatch doing some tricks
The Downy Woodpecker is feeding herself now
She hesitates a bit before taking off for the suet
There seems to always be a goldfinch at the birdbath
The juvenile Red-bellied Woodpecker is getting a little bit of red on its gray head
Watching the birds helps to soothe us when we get too caught up in the politics of our state and nation. The birds don't make demands or break promises; they just go about living as birds should live. And providing us a respite for a while.
