Feathered Friday

Today the boys are helping me identify some of the birds that we've seen recently with my new fancy Peterson Field Guide to Birds of Western North America.  This hooded oriole has been very elusive the past few days but I finally caught him this morning. I hope I can get some better pictures of him in the coming weeks.  The Western Tananger we saw in the Oso Creek Trail path (not far from our house) last weekend and my understanding is that they are migrating.  Such a pretty bird.  My wish list to see/photograph include the Calliope and Allen's hummingbirds (we have them but they are so quick!) and the lazuli bunting.  They are apparently pretty common around here so I am sure we'll see them before long.
Jack says "I'm pretty sure it's a house finch, Ma."

Definitely a hooded oriole
