Two black birds sitting and chatting

Lifer. This was a lot more co-operative bird compared to the Worm-eating Warbler that I saw a few days earlier. The bird was foraging on trees on both sides of the paved road just north of the Visitor Center. Tommy Thompson Park, Toronto, Ontario.

The ruddy turnstoneruddy turnstoneruddy turnstone (Arenaria interpres) is a small wading bird, one of two species of turnstone in the genus Arenaria.

This little beauty is sitting on a trellis that was placed near the bog during the winter. The trellis was used to clip frost cloth over the bog plants. I have every intention of moving it, but the birds really like to use it as a perch so I'm really in no hurry to do so.

 

Have a wonderful day and happy snapping.

Thank you all for visits, faves and comments!

Yesterday afternoon (Oct. 18) while working in the back yard I notice a large number, perhaps 35 American goldfinches eating my sunflower seeds. I plant them for the goldfinches. Even though the wind was blowing and clouds at times obscured the sun I decided to get chair, tripod, and camera and sit down close to where the birds were feeding. They soon returned. I am uploading a sample of my photos. Notice the variation in color, which is mostly the difference between male, female, and juvenile. A few birds have white feathers on their crowns. While I was sitting I enjoyed watching 3 red-tailed hawks soaring high above and saw one curious House Sparrow land on the sunflowers to see what was going on and one House Finch. Finally, 5 Dark-eyed juncos showed up and grazed on the ground below the goldfinches and sunflower plants. Obviously I took way more goldfinch photos than I need. I am posting a small number compared to the 90 plus that I took. I will upload photos of the other birds that I mentioned latter. IMG_5423

Girlitz (Serinus serinus)

Sweet little bird watching sun rise alone

I keep thinking these are pigeons from a distance. Damn my colour blindness

Walter Zoo, Gossau

I hope that you have all got somewhere in your garden where the birds can get some water

Another shot from our mid Wales trip. A first for me ... the flycatcher, not Wales. A time of noisy joy and celebration ... Much to the consternation of other birders!

This was taken in my garden no less with the starling on that branch and that rainbow was drifting by in the background

Who doesn't enjoy a quick little nap in the sun? Especially after a long morning at the bird feeder!

No, not me! But this poor bird I stalked with my camera until he or she had enough. ;-)
