Birds in my Backyard…

Birds in my Backyard…

Here are a few more birds that I’ve seen lately in my backyard…

This is the Red-bellied Woodpecker. Even though most of the time it is difficult to see the red on their bellies and they clearly have a red on their heads (my guess is that the Red-headed Woodpecker was named first, so that when this one was found they had to come up with something else…)

This one eats the seeds most of the time, but occasionally the suet too.

This male Pine Warbler loves the suet and shows up almost everyday!

The male Eastern Bluebird loves the suet too! He comes almost everyday too, with a female and a juvenile (probably one from its last brood). They usually have 2 broods a year, but sometimes 3, I’m pretty sure the ones that nested in my yard had 3 broods this year.

If you are ever out hiking and you happen by a group of birders who are talking about seeing a Butterbutt…

No, they’re not talking about cooking a turkey, they are using the endearing nickname for the bird in the photo below.

It’s the Yellow-rumped Warbler. They can be found throughout all of Canada and the US down into Northern Mexico.

Most other Warblers will migrate to the tropics in the fall, but the Yellow-rumped will stay in the North living on berries.
