This Week's Miscreants

There has been a lot of activity at the landfill since my last post.  The migrants are coming back full force.  Over the last week I've seen: both species of kinglets, Common Yellowthroat, Yellow-throated Warbler, Eastern Kingbird, Lincoln's Sparrow, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, and more.

This is an immature Red-headed Woodpecker.  You can tell he's am immature because of the brownish wash on the head, adult's entire heads are bright red.  I see this guy in the same spot every day, pecking around on the same couple trees.  He won't ever let me approach close enough to get the photographs I want.  I might have to set up a stake out sometime soon and catch him unawares.

the barn swallow is especially appealing; even the somewhat humble sparrow I love. Great photos!

May be if you leave a suet block out, you would be able to capture a photo of the wood pecker.

Excellent photos.

Really like the sparrow, feed the town ones every time they come around. Even set up a small space on my balcony to keep them well fed during the winter as food is scarce and I didnt want them to perish like that.

Thanks for the great post.
