An ibis sits on our dock.
We see the hooded merganser couple almost every day. Most of the time they stay in the middle of the channel but occasionally I’ll peak out the window and they are right in front of our dock.
I was out in the backyard taking this picture. He was keeping an eye on me. If I took one step more away from the house, he would have gone swimming down the channel.
The neighborhood osprey tugging on his fish.
He would take a bite and then look around, repeating this the entire time he was eating.
The house sparrows were already fixing up the nest in our dock.
Taken through the bedroom window, the neighborhood kingfisher was watching me as he was trying to gulp down his fish.
Blooms in the yard in November.

Beautiful selection of birds from your backyard.
some of the best pictures come from the backyard.
By the look of the bird’s ruffled feathers, I think the little fish was putting up a valiant fight.
That’s a wonderful collection of photos ! Thanks for sharing !
