Excellent birds

The bird feeders in my mom’s backyard have been all a-bustle this year with cardinals, chickadees, tufted titmice, finches, and hungry woodpeckers (not to mention squirrels). I was happy today not only to get a female red-bellied woodpecker, but also a flicker which has been hanging around the last couple of weeks, feasting on suet.

The flicker isn’t as easily spooked as the red-bellied, and brazenly bogarted the suet against red-winged blackbirds.

Jays are loud, but they’re the prettiest birds we have around here. I just love this one’s ‘tude! ;)
