Backyard visitors in June.


 A juvenile mockingbird on the fence. Taken through the bedroom window.


This was on my neighbor’s fence.  I’m not sure what this is. It looks different from the mockingbird. The eye color was different. It looks bigger than a house sparrow.  Any ideas?


A green heron on the dock. This was taken through the window.


A night heron walking around the backyard. Taken through the window.


I saw the duck family swimming down the channel and grabbed my camera and headed out the back door.


  They came pretty close to the dock checking to see if I had any handouts.


View from standing on the dock.


They stayed pretty close together. They cruised around our end of the channel for a while and then headed out. This was the first baby duck family I have seen in our channel this spring. We usually see several swimming around by June.

Just a few of the visitors in our backyard in early June. We haven’t gotten many this spring. A big family of house sparrows and blue jays are the only birds visiting the feeder right now.
