Yard Fowl


The poor dirty brown bird.

California Towhee

Rummages around litter and bushy plants and below bird feeders.
The juveniles are DBB to me.
But I do enjoy just watching them move, they are the first to the feeders these days.
Others are coming back.

Here again is the
Eurasian Collared-Dove
Wandering around with his mate.
They fly together, eat together, and yesterday in birdbath together.
I missed the birdbath photo opportunity.
They are not native to our area of course.
I like seeing the red eyes with the dark black pupils.

As I sit on the deck attempting to stalk the hummingbirds,
I look up in the sky to just take it all in...

there is so much detail in the first one, beautiful little plain jane/joe bird and I love the pine cones, we can't get any to stay on our trees, the squirrels strip them to nothing every time one comes out and they leave the sharp things on the deck for my feet

So lovely...even though that young one is a bit goofy! ha!!

DBB, aw.....
Think maybe we have doves like that, not sure, they walk like little boats.
Sure is a beautiful blue sky!
Nice pictures!

That dove is really spreading. We saw one last winter at the Salton Sea where they are not to be found. The birds are scarce at our place right now as their is so much food in the forest so I don't feed them right now. Love when someone stops and just looks up at the sky. Yours was very beautiful.
