My husband puts out birdseed nearly every day. We feed ducks and the occasional pair of geese, doves that nest in the roof of our apartment complex, squirrels and little birds of more kinds than I know how to identify.
All those birds gathering at our back door day after day provide entertainment not only for us but for passersby. Especially the four-legged passersby who scare off the birds with their excited sniffings.
They also, in turn, provide a living buffet for the birds of prey that scout nearby. Ambrose has seen them more than I have, because he’s home more. But yesterday, I finally got a chance to get some good pictures of the fiercer birds that we feed.
|I don’t want to mess with the blinds and possibly scare it away.|
|Picture taken just as the bird flew off.|
|It doesn’t look like the bird was actually standing over any sort of substantive meal.|
Now I just need to figure out what kind of bird this is.
