I got these pics yesterday of I believe it is a Coopers Hawk. He was calling to another one flying overhead. I tried to get a pic of that one also but it was just to high. This one never would turn around so I could get a really good pic.

Thanks for the new thread Cat! And, that sure looks like a Coopers Hawk to me too, lovely bird!

Glen, I think I see six too. Those Spur-winged Lapwing babies are so cute!

I had the dog on the leash when I took these pic's in the backyard this afternoon so they may be a bit out of focus.

I nearly forgot - there are four lap chicks. There should be five but I cannot see the fifth. Apologies.

Saw my first Yellow-bellied Sapsucker of the season. They are here all the time but typically seem to see them more in the winter.

Other woodpeckers are now coming by pretty regularly. Downy's, Red-bellied's even have a Hairy coming but have yet to get a photo of him so far. I have seen a Pileated fly over and land in the neighbors tree but have not seen one on the feeders yet so far this season.

This Nuthatch seems to like our chimney for some reason. I think it's the view of the feeder! Smiling

I love the Woodpeckers, Lin! I haven't seen any for a while. They usually come to the suet feeder but they have not been around lately. Sad I am not sure why...

Nice ones! I am seeing lots of waterfowl down on the lake when I drive around. I am always on my way somewhere. Just don't seem to have time to go looking like I used too.

The Pale-headed Rosellas raised two young this season. This is one of them two days ago.

Well I bought a new bird feeder at Wal Mart yesterday. Hoping it helps to keep the Squirrels out of the seed! It has become a regular meeting place for all the Squirrels around here Glare Seems to be working so far...
