Wild Bird Wednesday #166

Wild Bird Wednesday

Apparently, I’ve been slacking off when it comes to photography. Like Mother Hubbard, I went to the photo cupboard and found the shelves bare. Here are two bird photos taken this week.

The House Finch appears to be in need of a wingman.

The House Finch appears to be in need of a wingman. I was unable to capture it yesterday, and didn’t see it today.

We’ve had rain so the grass is growing and going to seed. The House Sparrows don’t mind at all, they seem to enjoy it. I didn’t take a picture, though. The Northern Mockingbird returned to his guard post, defending the territory. I feel much safer now.

  1. You’re pretty much an expert on birds. We have jays that land in our yard and every few seconds they flap their wings once or twice (not trying to fly just flapping the wings). It’s not during rain so it’s not to dry them out. What gives?
