White Crowned Sparrow

May 11, 2017

The newest of my  backyard  feathered  visitors are  the White Crowned Sparrow.  They  are  usually a ground feeder, but after foraging at the bottom of my feeders,  they have  caught on that the food supply is more plentiful  at  a higher altitude.   I have counted as many as 7 at one time feasting and perching about the yard.

The Rose-Breasted Grosbeak ( male)  is  still a daily  visitor, along with his female counterpart………

The female grosbeak.

Lucky shot to  have caught  her during take off.

This robin fledgling was perched on my patio chair and chirping loudly for mom or dad to bring food.

In the clearing after a rain shower, this tufted titmouse came in for a moment of rest and seed.

The Downey Woodpeckers  frequently  quench their thirst  with hummingbird nectar.

Not sure who this little disheveled fellow is but he sure won my heart.

Hope you enjoyed!

Thanks for reading!
