Starlings and Squirrels

The starlings are going mad over the suet when the squirrels let them have a chance. The nuthatch makes a casual appearance and the common grackle saunters confidently below snatching up the crumbs.

The American goldfinch makes an unexpected visit to the porch-swing feeder; carefully picking out the black-oil sunflower seeds and the nyjer.

The mourning doves relax among the new dandelions; luxuriously stretching their wings like someone just waking up.

Juncos and sparrows interchange spots; each jockeying for position.

The American robin ignores all and concentrating on his task, listens for worms.
