A little variety

Oh yes, I shot lots of worming robins, but today's blog has some different charmers. It's been a while since I've seen a redpoll,.. way back in 2008. This handsome male seemed to enjoy being watched.

There are sparrows and there are sparrows. This sparrow's behavior helped identify him, a swamp sparrow...... working the muck and rocks at the upper Gill. He's hard to photograph, doesn't stay still.

And finally, behavior I've not seen before, a redbelly woodpecker and a downy woodpecker pecking in the same turf and not happy about it. Delicious trees. That's the lure.

Downy flew off to another branch and after a few seconds redbelly joined him. That also didn't last long.
