It is a gorgeous morning in Boulder, but the snow is going to start soon. The Red Tailed Hawk couple is tending to their eggs.
I saw this couple for the first time. Some kind of very small ducks.
That was my guess, too.
beat me to it. we have them out in socal too.
Steve Case — thanks for the name. I see these every now and then. I’m bad with remembering names.
Note the street address of the following place; my source for bird info in general.
Cornell Lab of Ornithology
159 Sapsucker Woods Rd
Ithaca, NY 14850
My life began in Ithaca, though I was born in New Mexico.
Golden Field Guide – Birds of North America – Christmas Gift 1974 from my sister.
You sure take some beautiful photos!
Blue wing teal
Indeed they are Blue-winged Teals. The pattern of white in the face is unmistakable. Since 1960 their populations have doubled. Thanks to global warming?
no doubt. probably racist ducks too.
No way to stop white privilege , as animals discovered this long before there was one human here on earth .
You guys obviously need an American version of our Birds in Backyards bird finder.
Notice you had a brood of young Kookaburras hunting from your back fence. Cute. :-)
I mainly get mynas, doves, magpies and common butcher birds, although there is a group of parakeets that cause a ruckus occasionally on their way through.
They’re a lot of fun. All of those five will sit on my arm. Free food is a big drawcard. : )
Magpies are somewhat more skittery.
I cannot entice them closer than about 3-4m
