Hey, I get a lot of appreciated disturbances at my home office. Sometimes the visitors act as my alarm clock, and other times they're drooling. Here's a brief look from my window…
Fighters, or …?
Insects are delicious, or, Woodpecker waking Craig up at five am is hilarious.
Steller's Jay locks in best target in the Squirrel-resistant Suet Palace.
(note to self: refill the Palace)
A Robin, bath interrupted, and indignant.
Craig's wake up call is sometimes provided by two raccoons, here's one of 'em.
Others have discovered a new way to wake up Craig: a very chuffed, very loud, Western Scrub Jay.
Okay, we'd like to see more of these guys. The Mrs put up a parrot toy. She's instructed me to make "parrot noise."
Parrots, skeptical and amused. (At least the bald spot hasn't grown in 20-30 years…)
Philosopher pigeon wonders about it all.
Selfie with Billy, nephew #20 who will visit, someday. Billy's the one (visibly) drooling…
The demure one.
And, finally, this is Walter.
These photos are all by the Mrs. and myself, and were pulled from my facebook page, and the #Crileen (that's Craig and Eileen) Birdography Spectacular. A Special thanks to Cornell Lab of Ornithology and eBird.org for helping out with some bird IDs, they do great work!
I'll keep you posted on the parrot noises…
