All has been quiet on the birding front in our yard. Birds must be nesting or something because they sure aren’t hanging out in our yard in large numbers. Some of the usual birds have been showing up on occasion though. Above is a Red-breasted Sapsucker looking for food on our Walnut Tree. As you can see from the branch at the left edge of the photo, the tree has leafed out and will soon start growing some walnuts.
This Chickadee was in the woods behind our house. Unfortunately, Chickadees didn’t nest in our birdhouse this year. I miss them.
And, of course, there are always plenty of Northern Flickers to go around. This one was sitting atop a dead tree overlooking the Willamette River.
Hopefully once some chicks hatch and fledge we’ll start seeing some more activity in the yard.
