  1. Most unusal - saw a hummingbird land on the grass in a 95 degree day and spread its wings as if hurt. it stayed for about 5 seconds and then took off so I think it was soaking up the sun. In the next 5 minutes it did it 2 more times, spreading its wings as it sat in the grass. there is a birdbath with a fountain about 6 feet away - maybe it was betting some droplets of water. Interesting and wild......
  2. how about checking the nest to see on how many eggs, etc.... does any one do this?
  3. ok, awesome, I never knew the color difference on the redwing blackbird. Thanks alot everyone!
  4. No way it’s a red winged blackbird. I have may around and it not even black…..
  5. Looks like a song sparrow but bigger . Robin size.
  6. Yes, that is what it looks like. Here is another image. Thanks!
  7. This guy has been roosting on my front porch at night. In Beaverton, Oregon area. Looks like a Bewick's Wren?
  8. Thanks for theThats great news charlie! I looked it up and it is a possibility in the Beaverton oregon area. I have not seen one yet but next summer I will put out some orange halves in suet cages so the squirrels cannot get at them as well.

  12. cool! he sure tries to get those squirrels though. It keeps him busy. thanks
  13. yep, I realize I'm feeding all the birds now. that's when I realized that the few drops of blood I saw on top of the feeder the other week was probably remnants of dinner time for the hawk also. I think my dog would be safe though at about 18 pounds, he is a Parson Russell. The real Death from above.....
