The cooler weather sights

Cautious thrasher.
The grackles are so smart, but haven't figured out yet that dunking an acorn won't soften it up.
Immature robin. Didn't expect to see this so late in the season. Must have been  a late nestling
                                                                     One-second tanager.
Still busy photographing opera.

Hummer body language

From end of September. Body flexibility of a tiny force.

Not posting as regularly due to heavy opera shooting schedule.

Fun subjects

Love the grackles when they show up to drink and bathe
Curious goldfinch, no fear
Very cautious thrasher
Squirrel devouring seed pod, crunch crunch
Hard to get wren, flitting in corners
                       It's not nesting season but pigeons were doing a hoochy kootchy dance.

Fun variety

Tanagers in town
Female towhee
I don't see a white crowned sparrow often.
Back to hummer.... preening.

Nest to last hummers

The jewelweed is drying up. There will be fewer hummers now.

Still haven't seen grosbeaks. They also like the jewelweed for the seeds.
