Strolling

Looking for hummers. Instead I saw everything else. Young blue jay.
Black-and-white warbler,   going-going-gone.
The mocker checked me out.
Skippers and wannabe butterfly.

The munchies

I should have figured this was going to be a crazy day. Went to find hummers. Instead I came upon a feeding fest. Somebody left behind coffee cake. Every crumb got eaten, the small birds in front of me, the squirrel behind me. Maybe I should have delivered some coffee.

Still summer

A real personality, robin "teenager".
A quiet spot for anting, also juveniles.
But not all robins reach life.
Young catbird in a safe food haven.

Learning what to eat

Now that Mama isn't delivering the grub it's time to sample own food. They know instinctively what's good. Sometimes.
In between starling. Goofy Gorgeous!

If this doesn't beat all!

There was a rock walking around downstairs.  Ran for the camera. I knew what it was, a hermit crab. A hermit crab???!! On West End Avenue??!!  I have no idea how it got here, but there it was. Of course I had to pick it up to get an underside picture. And back  on the sidewalk it just looked like another rock.  When this critter outgrows the shell it's not going to be easy finding another house.
So what's the next goofy surprise going to be????

Oriole display

Go for the insects. I stood perfectly still doing my best imitation of a tree. Oriole had no concerns. Bug chomping good time.
