Since returning from Mexico last Friday I’ve been sick, runny nose and coughing, so I’ve just stayed inside wasting a lot of time playing solitaire on the computer and watching out the window. Wildlife entertainment sure beats TV, which I don’t own anyway.
The javelina love bird seed and usually show up in the afternoon between the bird’s feeding time.
Sometimes a little scuffle occurs over who gets what seed.
But all is quickly forgiven.
Seems like the mom’s are showing their youngsters where to get good eats.
The male cardinal looks like a Christmas ornament so brightly contrasting with the green oak background. I would love to have a tree filled with them.
The Gambel quail typically feed on the ground and usually arrive by the dozens.
But I guess there wasn’t enough seed on the ground so this plump fellow made it up near the feeders.
Then hung on rather precariously leaning out for tasty seed morsels while a rufous-sided towhee looked on.
The thrasher also seems to have some difficulty hanging on for a snack.
And the dove appears almost clumsy in the attempt to hold on.
But the sparrows have no trouble. Maybe I need bigger feeders.
It snowed two nights in a row. Now I’m not big for cold or snow but it is beautiful to look at glistening in the sun while watching out the window, inside where it’s warm.
That’s part of my world. If you want to tour more of the world, or share your own, join us and link in at Our World Tuesday by clicking here.
