We are going to have to rethink how our living room is laid out again. A bit of adjusting to better suit my husband’s needs, and a bit more shifting around. Our big picture window is currently blocked off completely, and I’d like to open it up again.
Then promptly block it again. With a tripod. 😀
We had many chickadees, as usual, and a third squirrel has joined the two we usually see. Then we got this crowd.
I have been able to find our copy of A Field Guide to the Birds of North America, and was able to identify them as chipping sparrows. [correction: these are redpolls, which were not in my book at all. We get chipping sparrows in the summer.]
Then our beautiful lady came to visit again. We first saw her going through the spruce grove some distance away, but she came back for a quick feed.
What a beauty!
We have a pair of blue jays that regularly visit – likely a mated pair. One of them hung out in the spruces for a while.
I just love their colouring. They’ve always been one of my favourite birds.
