Brown-Headed Cowbird

Brown-headed cowbirds are pretty cool when they're alone.

From Birds

But too often they come in like a mob of thugs, knocking all the other birds out.

Female Red-Winged Blackbird

From Birds

This one is a guess.
And you're probably asking..
"Where's the red on the wings?"
nope, not on the female.

Savannah Sparrow

From Birds

I'm pretty sure this is a Savannah Sparrow, based on its striped chest. If it was a little closer, we could tell for sure, by seeing some yellow in its eyebrows.

Male Red Bellied Woodpecker

From Birds

This guy is pretty happy because he just grabbed a nut from the feeder.

You can tell the male from the female because the red on the head extends all the way back. Also notice the red on his belly.

Brown-Headed NutHatch

From Birds

These guys bore a small holder in my railing. They fly down to the feeder, grab a seed, place it into the holder, then peck it open. This is a movie. Click the image to play it.

Darlene thinks these guys look like Ryan Seacrest.
But I think they look more like Sleestaks.
