Got One!

This triumphant young Carolina Chickadee has learned how to get sunflower seeds from the feeder.

But he turned his backside to me as he tackled the tough job of cracking one open.

Chasing the Blues Away

I’m so thrilled! I have waited for years to see these birds again.
Now, there’s a pair of these beautiful, sleek Cedar Waxwings! They must have a nest nearby, as they keep chasing the Blue Jays away.

A Pleasant Surprise

The only time I saw Cedar Waxwings here was about five years ago when a small flock passed through, making quick work of the berries in a neighbor’s yard.
Yesterday, as I was watching a group of young Blue Jays, I saw this quiet, lone bird perched on another branch. The day was pretty windy and it was hard to focus through the foliage, but I did manage to get a fairly decent shot this time.

Avian Dust-up

Far from being quality shots, this series does capture the dramatic action I witnessed yesterday afternoon. These two Robins apparently had a territorial dispute.
