LUNAR SUNRISE AND BIRDS IN DAYLIGHT

As the sun rose around 7AM, the moon dominated a cloudless sky.

Look at the tail feather in the final flicker pic–yellow? Could this be an eastern female here for the winter? Yellow-shafted perhaps?

Lee French in Ashland, tried to maintain feeders…

When we lived in Ashland, we had to bring our feeders inside every night. We could never put kitchen trash in garbage can until the morning of pick-up. They hate bubble-wrap, but banana peels? Biscuits? Blueberries? Bears thjere regularly raid the vineyards. Bears can smell a snack from a long distance. Some places, like Tahoe, people are required to have bear-proof trash cans.
