This day in pictures

That’s the male Northern Flicker and the male Black-headed Grosbeak sharing the platform feeder.  Through a window so the blurs are part of my art. 

Easier to pose, some wildflowers:

In the sunflower or aster family it’s

Wyethia augusifolia.

Please note small dark bee on an ear to the left of this caption.

 

Then there’s this hillside specialist, in sweet-scented bloom all over the Siskiyous and the foothills of the Cascades:

 

White manzanita, Archtostaphylox viscida.
