Doves sleeping on our fence. Taken through the kitchen window.
This night heron was hanging out on our dock, staying busy preening.
An ibis flew in and landed on the same dock.
The night heron was not happy with the ibis near his spot and chased him off. I just happened to be walking out of the side of the house to sneak around to the back to take pictures of the heron when I caught the ibis landing.
A few minutes later the night heron flew down to the water. It was an extreme low tide and you could see some of the rocks exposed. He was looking for tiny crabs on the rocks.
A mockingbird was eating something off my neighbor’s bottle brush tree.
A red bellied woodpecker in the tree.
Not an exciting bird but the house sparrows nest nearby and I always get a lot of them at my feeder so I consider them “my” birds. They are not skittish at all.
I was hosing down the front porch early one Sunday morning when I looked down the driveway and saw a duck couple drinking the runoff water. I know they want a handout but we don’t feed the ducks here. On one side it would be fun if they nested in our bushes but on the other side, our driveway would be covered in piles of duck poop.
Wow – gorgeous!
Beautiful photos. That night heron is a sight to behold.
Your birds are lovely! I’d be intrigued by them all, too! I also understand about the duck poo as we had a pond at another house that attracted many wild ducks and about 80 of their babies!
