Flashback 2013 -Birds in a maple tree on Thursday, January 24, 2013. This is my pick photo for today and stars three juncos hanging out in the maple tree that leans over my garage and driveway from my next door neighbor’s back yard.
Today, Friday of 2014, brought new bird sightings at the pond that I visit, along with the birdy friends that I’ve already met. The little waterbird with the Woody Woodpecker hairdo turned out to be a female hooded merganser, because she and another female were joined by this flashy male.
I also found out that the mostly white with dark waterbird with a red beak that I’ve been seeing is a common merganser. There’s also a lone Canada goose that hangs out and I’ve been seeing that I think may be injured and unable to fly. He or she is being checked out in this photo by this kingfisher (new sighting) sitting on a rock.
Our hearts give thanks for the Grace in the Universe!
