March 1 and finally rain, we were getting worried here in California. We have had a few days of scattered rain showers this winter but far below normal. This week has been wet, grey and cool... hurray. Both Jerry and I have been fighting colds or a mild flu, just enough to take away our normal 'pep' and 'perkiness'. I spent most of my day doing paper work in the office. Then we noticed the birds, lots of them, visiting our feeders and yard in large numbers. Looking back at my bird journal and pictures they are our regulars that show up in larger numbers in Feb - March. Others are the daily visitors but there seemed to be much more than usual. Maybe a few of them headed down hill to avoid some of that snow falling in the Sierra. I enjoyed my break bird watching.

I haven't seen this particular bird before, he's the only one I've noted with the white patch around his eyes. The others have solid black heads. Large flocks fed here today. They cleaned up the spilt seed below the bird feeders.



Nuthatch, a regular here.




I cheated here, this Stellar Jay photo is from a few weeks ago. My picture today was too blurry to share. They are such pretty birds, but hard to capture photos of because they usually fly away as soon as they spot me.






Northern Flicker. I only see them in the winter/spring.








Anna's Hummingbird. I put up more feeders and we have more hummers.











Lesser Finch and House Finch. Males.











Acorn Woodpecker, our home wrecker.














Lovely, lovely Mourning Dove.




If you don't care for bird pictures sorry, I know I shared most of these birds last year. I also enjoy wild life photography and have taken a few (very few) nice ones. Maybe I'll find some and share them.

Happy Trails.

I liked all the bird pictures. I like watching birds at my feeders also..my 2 cats like watching the birds at feeder also..

Karen Deborah said...

lovely, don't know how you have birds with cats!

Kathy said...

OK Di, the surgery post next. My cats love watching and stalking the birds too Mom. KD, the surviving birds are very quick and wary. We try to hang the feeders away from easy access to cats. However, Billy has learned a new trick, startle the birds into the windows and pounce on any that fall to the ground stunned. It is very disturbing.....

Jenn said...

My cats are too dumb to bother with the birds....I love seeing the different types you get that we never have around here.

I did see a meadowlark in one of the pastures this weekend, and I was so excited to see it! I haven't seen one in years. The little bluebirds are coming back, we have cardinals by the score, the owls are becoming more vocal as it warms up and the neighbors peacocks must be hitting the peak breeding season because the males are back at the screaming at night again. There is no other sound like it, and I think it's kinda cool.

Sometimes great ideas originate from while you might be fixing a jewelry piece.
There are many "semi-precious" stones today whose rarity
means they are as expensive as rubies and sapphires. Fireproof safes should also carry a reasonable burglary
rating, because they may be a highly desirable item to
steal.
