Glad we did, enjoy the sights!
|First birds we noticed were white breasted nuthatches, this one seems to be checking every crack and crevice, making sure no snack goes unnoticed.|
|How do you know you have a creeper and not a nuthatch? Creepers walk up, head first. Nuthatches usually walk head down, downward. When this little Brown creeper reached the apex point of this tree, he flew back down to the base, gave a phto op and continued to work his way back up. A little comedic fun to help you figure out the foraging patterns of your birds, from Bird & Moon.|
|We got lots of trunk creepers in one small area, this was a nice treat- a red-breasted nuthatch!|
|He even flew to the ground to grab a berry- what an odd little thing. You can get an idea of how not big he is, incomparison to an oak lead and some over grown grass.|
|A sneak attack by a ruby-crowned kinglet? Or maybe to make sure that the coast is clear- especially as we saw a coopers hawk patrolling the area.|
|The golden-crowned kinglet seems to have found that the constant look of disapproval is advantageous to survival....|
|Also winning at life, this orb-weaver clearly hit the jackpot in terms of real estate!|
