The inner eye

I've been busy with other projects and will be busy for the next few weeks. Instead of posting editorial (factual) images I'll be posting inner eye images as time permits. I have been seeing the predictable migrating birds.... common yellow throat warblers, worm eating warblers, redstarts, B/W warblers, etc. I've posted them on blogs in previous years.  These posts represent something very different, non-editorial. Images are also being posted on Facebook with greater regularity.

Watching behavior, Part 2

Still digging for worms.
Not in my mouth, thank you very much.
Growing up now.
Robins are usually fussy about sharing bath space. Not this hour.
A "sitzbath" for mama cardinal.
                                                And watching from another tree, the child.

Watching behavior

Very young sparrow not sure where to find food
Taking in the sun starling
Male sparrow at nest with food.
Young robin still calling for "room service"
If fries are dropped they will get eaten
And where there's food there are rats, more rats in the park than I've ever seen before.

Grey and a touch of Blue

Catbird anting on the rocks
Right at my feet, non-skittish starling. Maybe it spotted a hawk and froze in place, but it didn't consider my presence a threat. Totally weird behavior. Young bird, tweeny stage. It stayed put for at  least three minutes.
Also a tweeny, young grackle
Finally a bit of color, non-skittish bluejay.
There are migrating birds in town. I'm watching behavior, not trying to photograph everything.
