Folks, many of you might know that I've got quite the community of birds right outside my office window. They've all got their own personalities and agendas (though, they all like to eat), but they really spruce up my home office.
I kinda like to give 'em personalities based on their expressions and their demeanor. It's gotten easier the longer we've been neighbors. Feel free to chime in with your own captions, too.
Good morning! part one (…and that hawk is still watching me work):
Good morning! part two (or, planning to raid the Squirrel-resistant Suet Palace):
A Golden-crowned Sparrow is very pleased to be a Golden-crowned Sparrow:
A Varied Thrush greets the birthday (startups, marriage, and other things I did after 35…):
A Cedar Waxwing who's very pleased with his tail feathers:
A neighbor Hawk (red-tailed?) waits for lunch:
Downy Woodpecker, or, Hey, Honey!
(mutant) House Finch is not impressed (Normally bright red, this one's kinda orange):
Do you have any visitors to your yard? I'd like to hear about 'em, and see some photos. Speaking of visitors, while it's not a Bay Area bird, I do have a new neighbor who really chews up the scenery. Seriously, it gets digested…
(New neighbor even works in the rain… goats clear underbrush, working for the city. Bonus: we got goatherds!)
