When I looked out the window, this juvenile Cooper’s Hawk was looking in at me. It took me by surprise! He looked around, hopped up on the bench, looked around some more and then flew off.
You could tell that he was a young hawk because he kept ruffling his feathers like he was waiting for mom to feed him.
So adorable, don’t you think? What a beautiful bird!
This beautiful Eastern Kingbird has been hanging around our yard all summer. He loves to sit up on a branch high in the trees and come down for an occasional drink. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
Have you ever seen an Eastern Kingbird?
I looked out the window yesterday and 4 little Bluebird chicks were sitting around our tiny, little birdbath, trying to take a bath. It was just precious! (Click on blog link for other photos.)
We had some baby Bluebirds here about a month ago, so this must be a 2nd brood. What a treat!
It doesn’t get much cuter!
We had stopped to watch all of the bird activity at Arey’s Pond the other morning when we saw 3 Belted Kingfishers flying about looking for food. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
I couldn’t get them all in one frame but this one looked like a baby waiting for his parent to feed him. Meanwhile, we watched the adult eat what looked like a turtle and then something else…maybe a fish?
What a great experience and so much fun to watch!
I haven’t seen a Killdeer on Cape Cod in a long, long time, so this was such a treat when I saw a bird with a distinct striped neck by the little tidal pond. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
I clicked away and then put it on my iBird PRO Sleuth App and knew it was indeed a Killdeer. And then, when I got home and put it on my computer, I realized that there were two of them!
Have you ever seen a Killdeer?
Last night was quite a scene in our backyard with 3 Northern Flicker chicks wanting to get fed. They were all perched on top of our feeders while Dad would get some suet and then fly up and feed one at a time. It was just precious.
Have you ever seen anything so adorable?
