Bugs, glorious bugs = birds, glorious birds in your face. No caution. Food first. I picked spots and stood still and with no effort on my part there were birds within touching distance. Lots of ruby crowned kinglets working the ground.
Usually shy towhee. Not this time.
One of these days I'll get the peewee doing its acrobatic bug snag.
Whoever heard of a junco coming so close!
This yellow rump warbler cracked me up. Bugs in the grass. Forget about human presence. Bugs first. There's a guy who naps on the lawn. Convenient bug look-out.
I don't usually see this bird, the blue headed vireo, so this was a fine surprise.
