Alert

A Downy Woodpecker, ever watchful.

A small motion

This little Black-capped Chickadee startled from the shutter noise, but stayed put and sorted through seeds. I loved the sense of motion in some parts, while the rest was stilled.

Curse you, scary shutter noise!

The younger Blue Jays are very skittish, and they don’t like shutter noise.

Beauty Remains

Beauty (yes, I call her Beauty) is still coming to the deck every day. She is remarkably tolerant of me, even when I’m aiming loud shutter noise at her through an open window, roughly 9 feet away from her.  Melanerpes carolinus, female Red-bellied Woodpecker.

Hanging Out

Gold Puff

The Goldfinches are back! And all puffed up, because it is very windy and seriously cold outside.
