Garden fun continues

The tiny wren is hopping in grass, up to wall to spot bugs, back into grass, perfect tiny visitor.

Up above the starlings, robins, hermit thrushes are gobbling up berries.

Lots of flitting around

Once the kinglets find a fertile bug patch they stay put until they eat their fill.
Into the same space came the winter wren. Bugs enough for everyone.
                                       The hermit thrush is happy above, berry gorging time.

Continued garden joy

Berries and bugs attract the regulars. And army of robins. These are robins arriving from up north. Our robins left town in August.
Winter wren finds bugs under the leaves. Find the tail, spot the wren.
Hermit thrushes are also gorging or staring at lens glass.
Endless sassy starlings
Ruby crown kinglet, also a bugger. You can see tiny spot of red on head. Female.
More will follow.  Editing hundreds of pictures.

Fun in the garden

This was a berry nice afternoon. Pluck and eat, or rip berry apart and eat.  Young female cardinal.
The hermit thrush
Hungry robin
Even the white throat sparrow was eating the berries.
Plucky starling
The kinglets go for bugs. At least a dozen kinglets were flitting around in the grass, ruby crowned kinglets
       And the winter wren, also bugging in the grass. Easy to find in tall grass. Just look for tail.

October baby

I never expected to see this in October, a cardinal baby still calling for food.  This is early summer behavior.
I've heard the call for food for several days, persistent. This was the first day I've actually seen this cute kid.
Lots of baby fluff still.
Papa looks for food non-stop for his child.
The hermit thrush is an expected visitor in the fall.  There have been a few in the garden.
