Have Camera, No Travel

The price of gas is insane, so I decided to spend the morning with the cats and the birds out on the deck instead of wandering off in search of warblers.

Squeek is new at this and mostly just sits under the grill and sways her little head back and forth as the birds flit from feeder to tree and back.

Mama Cat is a little more experienced but also very polite to the birds. The birds don't seem to mind sharing the deck with them at all.

I heard that a Blue Bunting visited my feeders yesterday so I watched and waited, but all I saw in blue was a Jay.

Downeys, Hairys, Red-Headed and Red-Bellied Woodpeckers are frequenting the suet and Sunflower feeders. Woodpeckers in general are my favorite bird to photograph as their behavior is so predictable and animated.
