Yard birds.

We have an amazing number of birds that come visit our yard. just for example we had 4 different woodpeckers today. Downey, (Sharon calls him Robert!) the Hairy, a little bigger and more white on it's chest. The flicker and a visit from the Piliated, Woody of course....edit: Make the 5 There's a Lewis woodpecker out there now!
One of these days :rolleyes: I'll fix up some sort of blind for the tripod.

Just took this couple through the window. A punk kid of a Steller's Jay and a Northern Flicker.

Hi Ken,

I think you mentioned that you shot these through glass. If so, they came out just fine. I enjoy seeing flickers as they rarely come to my feeder. And then only, for a fleeting moment.

That jay is an odd-looking one! LOVE the flicker shots. Good ones!

The jay really is a young 'un. That's why he looks a little scraggled. Flickers are like Robbins here they come in flocks they come on the deck because they, like the other woodies have discovered the suet cake. Makes 'em feel like they're pecking at a tree..!?

Just took a snap of this guy, an Eastern Gross Beak. Light was bad so it's not great I like them though. I'll work on them.

Thanks for the shots. You have birds that I have never personally seen before.

I've cut out some cardboard to fit that window now. I took the screen off before those shots, now I can try with the window open and on the tripod.

Cut a hole for the lens of course...:)
