The female hummingbird was still coming to visit in late June.
It’s not often a smaller bird will come to the feeder when a woodpecker is on it. This chickadee was brave.
Blue jays are regular visitors.
This was the first time I have seen a cardinal molting. This female had lost all of the feathers on her head. She was looking scruffy.
I went outside to get shots of the above downy woodpeckers. At first I thought they were a couple but after watching them for a while I realized they were parent and young. The parent was teaching the juvenile how to dig for bugs in the trees.
I took this through the window. A juvenile red bellied woodpecker was just getting his red feathers in.
We also had a pileated woodpecker stop by.
I looked out the window and saw the above swallow tail kite circling behind our house. I grabbed my camera and ran out the back door thinking he would be gone but I managed to get a few far away shots before he got lost over the woods.
Some of the usual non-flying critters in the backyard.
