More Feathered Friends

Another lovely Sunday morning in May ~ and more feathered friends to capture on camera. A pair of Evening Grosbeaks dropping in to enjoy the sunflower seeds. And a few shots of our Saturday night Hummingbirds. We've identified these hummers as Calliope wearing the purple necklace, and Rufous with the scarlet headdress. There are wonderful resources available online when our field guides fail us. I especially like the work of the folks at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Their All About Birds website and companion blog 'Round Robin' are well worth visiting. Informative, easy to navigate and chock full of good stuff ... all about birds of course.
