Birdstalking

I’m busy trying to get everything done for the Holidays, but I took a few minutes to play feather paparazzi and stalk the birds I can see through my office window.

A redheaded House Finch, who hasn’t come for the feeder, but the last honeysuckle berries.

An LBB (little brown bird) who might be a sparrow, but that’s not quite right…
birds-7
As I watched him longer I realized he was eating the seeds and discarding most of the pulp with a flick of his head.

Another one down the hatch

All of these photos were shot through glass, so they aren’t as crisp as they could be. But I really haven’t time (or body heat) to sit out and be very still long enough!
