Moms comments: beautiful Goldfinch in his new summer feathers. Some people call these Wild Canaries or yellow finches. They do have a lovely song. He still has more of the yellow feathers to come in, so it seems, from this shot. Front garden
I always loved this fountain Mom had. It was so perfect for all the wildlife as it just formed a small bubble of water.
Moms words: this cute Trio of Bushtits put on quite a bathing performance also : ) Love the white eyes on the one bushtit. Have recently read that the female Bushtits are the white-eyed ones, so had to alter the caption 🙂 Actually there were about 10 or more there bathing that day.
Moms words: another gorgeous exotic bird, – love the unusual large white eyes, and the iridescent feathers, — at the Bloedel Conservatory, Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver, BC. must check the leaflet to get the type of the bird. Believe it’s a type of robin
Another beautiful hummingbird picture. Mom sure had a talent with these ones. Love her description of the water droplet looking like a diamond. ❤️
Moms comment: female hummingbird with a diamond drop between her tiny feet, as she hovers above the fountain droplets at our lilypond, front patio.
I love all the diamond drops close to her body also.
Amazing how the wing movement can hardly been seen as she hovers there.
Captured from the farther open front window, with telephoto lens.
I love Moms gazing ball photos!!
moms comments: hummingbird at the gazing ball, different side of mirror ball this time.
captured from open front window with telephoto lens. They seem fascinated by the image they see in the mirror ball 🙂
This afternoon, from front window, this hummingbird looks like it has Angel Wings. This is a light coloured hummer, probably a female or perhaps immature male. hard to tell tho’.
Red Tailed Hawk soaring on thermals near The Bluff, Taken near home.
the Red Tailed Hawks shown in my bird book appear to have a lighter underbody, but there are variations. If this is not a Red Tailed Hawk, would appreciate if someone will let me know, thanks : )
