Last feast of January

bushtits1-31A busy morning in our garden how that we’ve moved back into our home.  Bushtits at the suet, some in a blur of motion.

A few bkirds have not yet rediscovered our fine avain cuisine.  Only one Lesser Goldfinch so far and no Siskins.  No nuthatch and not a single Downy Woodpecker.  There was a Red-breasted Sapsucker in the garden but they jays shouted him down before I could get a photo.

Juncos, both jays and the Mourning Doves were back in the gardenwithin minutes of re-filling the feeders after we moved back in.
