Are underrated. (Click and enlarge to see the tiny details).
Like this Holler bathing birdie,
a California Towhee, who isn’t much impressed with the paparazzi, smart birdie!
This yellow house finch has a deformed beak and foot, but is doing well on Holler handouts.
Male yellow house finches are less successful with the ladies than their ruby colored cousins, but I think the ladies lack vision.
Mocking Birds may be common,
but they are oh so smart, and very handsome.
House finches are everywhere,
but are really quite adorable!
Cheers to you from The Holler common folk~
And this is just how we like it!
Check out the cheeky, chirpy ones.
The beep-beep felt like a photo-op today,
and even forgot to run away!
He actually posed and beeped, vain meeper!
The mocking bird was in modeling mode, although still a very coy boy.
Cheers to you from The Holler and the world’s best neighbors~
Woody Woodpecker is so shy!
He sits on the roof and watches the wild birds on the feeders but will never eat, so I have bought a special woodpecker nut mix in hopes of drawing him in. For now though, he just watches from afar.
Beep-Beep spends much of his days snooping at us through windows. Here he is watching me at my desk as I blog. This was shot through the window so there is some distortion. He was about a foot from my face.
The baby house finches are still caging meals from their parents.
Grosbeaks are new Holler residents.
Hawks always watch over everything, and have never yet gone after any of the birds.
Although they certainly like to watch them closely!
Cheers to you from The Holler’s Audubon garden.
