Trash birds…are staring at me!

Happy birthday (bird-day?) to me! I’d hoped to get a new bird for my birthday, but Mother snuck off with my keys first thing in the morning, and didn’t return till the light had gone. Birds spotted, on this most auspicious of days:

* Western gulls
* Glaucous-winged gulls
* Western/glaucous-winged hybrid gulls
* One MASSIVE herring gull
* American crows
* A big, fat American robin
* Anna’s hummingbirds
* Black-capped chickadees.

Mother also told me a story about having seen three regal-looking brown birds, which had small heads, and were standing up tall, like begging dogs. This was the entirety of her description. I can’t begin to imagine what those were, but colour me jealous.

TRASH BIRDS ARE STARING AT ME!

This hummingbird is too far away to photograph well.  So far, my feeder has gone undiscovered.  My neighbour's hummingbird monopoly continues.

At least it's pinned down as an Anna's hummingbird, now.
