Birds seen in the last few days:

A baby crow huddled against a tree. (Girlfriend spotted that, looking because there were crows making their eff off from our baby call.)

Starlings I wanted to chase.

Something sparrowish with white stripes over the eyes. (I haven't looked it up.)

More than one robin.

Seagulls of course.

A cormorant. (Partner pointed that out.)

Next Yuletide?

I did enjoy the Octopus stories.

Saw a Hummingbird today! It was in a back garden flying around a Fuchsia.

Best place for a twig

This afternoon included standing under a tree, watching a crow who was in a half-built nest and tipping it shead considering where to best put the twig in its beak.

I saw a Steller's Jay. He called on the short fence behind me before flying over the road into a huge evergreen.

Really a cat

I looked up from my computer screen at muffled meowing... the girlcat just brought me a small flamingo toy.

However the cat just looked puzzled when I threw the toy. I guess she doesn't want to play fetch.

Crow

I saw a crow this morning sitting on what was pretty much a sapling. The crow had this look of "I'm just hanging around, yeah, this is a tree, it's sort of bendy but I'm fine." Then I moved too fast and startled it so off it flew.

Crows grooming

Heard croaking and looked up: there were two crows on a power line, and one of the crows was grooming the other. Sweet to see.

Saw a woodpecker

At least I assume that's what it must have been, because hanging on the side of a tree. Pretty red-brown bird.

Petrified Forest and Painted Desert today. Such colours!

There was a Raven hanging out by the parked cars, its feathers ruffled by the wind.

On the topic of birds, a poem I was introduced to with love a few days ago: A Cat on a Wire by Raymond Foss.

I especially like the line "a tabby cat, too young for sense".
