Lots to see, lots of catching up

It's migration time, lots to see. I've got many images to edit. From this take the nuthatch.
The male towhee rustling in the leaves, heard before seen.
The male black and white warbler.
And the ruby kinglet. Still trying to get a full red flash.

Funny starlings and kinglets

Clean out rubbish. Swell house. Tell the world it's your turf.

In another corner, the flitting ruby kinglet.

Lazing about

I don't feel like exercising when it's foggy either.
Pose for a picture?
Forget it!
Downstairs, two nests. Babies soon???
Beautiful white throated sparrows still in town

Imagine meeting this!  Proper protocol:  back off and make noise. Probably adult just out of hibernation on the prowl for food. Weird eyes.  It did amble off down to the lake. Maybe it will find crayfish. Skinny Mama needs food.
I brought the nuts in shell. This squirrel ran off with treasure. Never saw if it was eaten.
This dummy grabbed almond, ran off and buried it. Squirrels don't remember where they bury their stash.
Also found at the bandshell, a  lostling. Brought her home, cleaned her up, checked for insects, no problems,  re-homed her.
                              Lost bunny in Strawberry Field. Left it there. It won't get eaten.

On a stroll, nesting season

Lots of chirp chirp sounds. Everyone is into nest building
I don't think this nest will survive, too exposed. It will get wet and get the droops.
Signal light has a tarp, great nest space. I'd love to see under that tarp.
Statue of Daniel Webster is prime space. Wish I had an x-ray machine. There's activity in every crevice.
Starling abode, every year.
They put stuff in and take stuff out. Endless fascination.
Dump trash
