Daily Pics #101.

Female goldfinch.

Good morning on this cold but beautiful Friday!  It’s a new day, therefore it’s a beautiful day.  The little chipmunks were not out much yesterday, but it was nice that they did come around for a few trips looking for peanuts.  Not much bird activity though.  Sir George and Lady Pearl, my two main herring gulls were around, plus 2 of their friends from last year, Henry and Herbert.  Henry remembers me and comes to the feeder with me out there, but Herbert never was that brave, though I’m sure that will change.  And, Rickie showed up yesterday too, which was real nice, though I wasn’t able to get a picture.  Rickie is a ring-billed gull, almost a twin to the herring gulls, except they have a black ring around their bill and they are only half the size.  Unfortunately he isn’t brave enough to come to the feeder with me outside which is too bad since the crows will chase him away.  They have tried to chase the herring gulls too, which didn’t work out too well for them.  So they have learned to keep their distance, and keep their feathers.

Since we are on the subject of birds, here are a couple bright and sunny bird pics for us to enjoy today…

To start with, above, we have the male goldfinch.  These were around all winter and I shared pics of them before in their winter feathers, certainly quite a difference to their fine and bright summer plumage. IMG_3905

And above we have the male hairy woodpecker looking for some sunflower seeds on a sunny summer day.

There will be a mix of different pics coming along for the next little while, I hope you will enjoy them all.  Stay safe, stay home, have a wonderful day and God bless!
