No stopping

I was watching Stumpy (appropriate name), when into the space, whoosh......
arrived a young red tail hawk. I knew this wouldn't be a good photo op... too many branches and a hoard of screaming blue jays.



Narrow window for shooting and I knew this bird was going to fly. I decided to point-and-shoot.












That was fun. Hawk didn't catch anything. Headed west. More jays screaming in the distance.


Next location: the oven. Tipsy had been nibbling on these stalks, but downy didn't end up drunk.

This really puzzled me, touch of color in the grey landscape. I think this is a goldfinch, but the beak doesn't look like a finch beak, too pointed, a December puzzle bird.
