It’s hard to skip writing about the Blue Jays now because they are feeling very comfortable in my backyard. Their coming to the feeders and hanging out has become a daily thing. These birds are so good-looking that I can not dismiss them from my reports. They add a bit more color to the neighborhood!
These group of European Starlings that I’ve named the “Jersey Boys” for the simple reason that any time I see them are in a group and their bills wide open to sing their calls. They come and go several times a day and they’re always making sure that everybody pay attention!
My tiny little friends Ruby-throated Hummingbirds show up whenever there’s a break on the weather temperatures or some clouds block the direct sun rays and gets cooler. I’ve seen them drinking nectar late, at dusk, when it cools down but this is dark for me to shoot any good pictures. I love their visits even when they are short.
