Sunday morning at the feeder

We took our binoculars and our cameras over to the North Mountain Park feeders.  It was a relaxing way to finish off the Golden Gate Audubon bird trip to southwestern Oregon.  Here’s a little of what we saw:sharpie21

 

Sharp-shinned Hawk, also watching the feeders.  His arrival loudly trumpeted by one of the several Scrub-Jays around.  This one was holding one of the peanuts I’d brought to share:peanut-scrub

  1. Very nice sparrow pix!

  2. We’re friends of Julia Bartlett, neighbors too. Could we please put us on your email list. I knew woodducks were beautiful but your pictures showed how really beautiful they are. Do you have any closeups of a Kestrel–I know their colors are even better than I think.
