Indigo Bunting

Attempting to lure Bluebirds to our feeders and nesting box has been unsuccessful but instead I was treated to a visit from a lovely male Indigo Bunting.

You can’t always get what you want,
But if you try sometime you find
You get what you need. (M. Jagger, K. Richards)DSC_0445DSC_0435DSC_0436DSC_0437DSC_0442

Winging It

Yesterday brought typical Ithaca weather- wet, gray, and chilly. This weather seems to encourage birdfeeder activity. Having seen the male Baltimore Oriole for a number of days, I was happy to finally have a sighting of the female. She was a feisty bird, chasing away other species much larger than herself. Not as vibrant in color as her partner, she certainly made up for it in personality.

Crow Close-ups

Occasionally we see some Crows in our yard or at our feeders. This particular bird was in the front yard, and then across the street at our neighbors garage and yard. I was happy for the opportunity to document its visit. Smart, handsome, large and noisy, Crows are sometimes under appreciated…not at our house!DSC_0413DSC_0423DSC_0424DSC_0426DSC_0427
