Sunday....a day for the birds

Monday, April 28, 2008

With windy conditions, a sinus headache & a good book to finish reading, I opted to sit back and enjoy the birds visiting my new birdfeeder. I barely caught a little hummingbird, I saw a ladderback woodpecker (I think), some finches, mourning doves, Gambel's quail, some type of sparrows maybe...not all are in photos (doves & Quail).

I hope some of your true birdwatchers can help identify them (if you do post a comment with the type of bird, please number them starting at the top left with number 1. Thank you and hope you enjoy. Oh, the first two you'll have to look close to see the little hummingbird across the street from my site.

Some shots are decent, some not so decent but wanted to show you the wide variety of birds that arrived within 15 minutes of my setting out the feeder. This morning they arrived even earlier...LOL! Going to get this posted and then will sit outside eating breakfast before heading out sightseeing.

Till next time - keep on rollin',


  1. Good photos of fast moving subjects. I am unable to help identify any of them as I really don't know bird types. The desert seems to be teeming with bird life.

  2. Hello Donna,
    I would say that you bird pictures are:
    1 & 2. Unidentifiable but, when we stayed at Tombstone Territories back in early March the humming bird we saw most often was the Broad-billed Hummingbird.
    3. Curved-billed Thrasher
    4. Probable Ladder-backed Woodpecker. A shot of the back would help but, we saw many Ladder-backs when we stayed there.
    5. House Finch and Black-throated Sparrow
    6. House Finch and Canyon Towhee
    7. Canyon Towhee
    8. House Finch and Black-throated Sparrow
    9. Black-throated Sparrow
    10. Female House Finches
    11, 12, 13, 14, 15. House Finch
    16. Curved-bill Thrasher
    17 & 18. House Finch
    19. Black-throated Sparrow
    20. Curved-billed Thrasher
    21. House Finch
    22, 23, 24. Black-headed Grosbeak.
