More stress relief images

I shot these birdie pix a few weeks ago but wasn't going to post because they're not new discoveries. In fact, I'm surprised about the dearth of birds up at our cottage. I haven't seen any warblers, e.g., and while, yes-they are hard to see, being small and very active-I should've seen a few by now. All I've seen are the usual suspects.

But I'm posting a few images of the usual suspects anyway as maybe you can glean a little happiness from these wonderful creatures.

An Eastern Kingbird with dinner. The dragonfly didn't glean any happiness, however:



A Red-eyed Vireo:



A pair of Downy Woodpeckers. Since they both appear to be females, I'm going out on a limb here to say they are a mom and juvenile:



And a couple of Great Blue Herons. This is a long shot with the trusty SX60 as the bird seemed to be relaxing; maybe from a full belly:



Since I was closer to this one, it froze in the pose! I like the dragonfly photo-bombing the image...



Thx for looking in...

It's been a bird paradise in my city back yard. I've seen a bunch of birds I've not ever seen before. Of course, I have no idea what they are, but it's been cool looking at them.

Thanks for the nice pics.

If you can get some images, I'm sure this august forum could identify them. I'd like like to see something new!

We used to have a blue heron that would feed in our pond He would also sit on our roof and relieve himself. You might be surprised at how much poop can come from a bird of that size. sad smiley

Lovely. Thank you.
Last week I saw a pair of green Herons flying from their fishing spots back to their nest. They were happily honking away at each other.. I had never heard them vocalize before. They sounded like a particularly throaty goose.

the herons are amazing for a few reasons, I'm sure, but the silent takeoff and flight are what amaze me the most.

I'll try to capture some. I've looked up some, and two are a flicker of some sort (woodpecker, I guess) and a yellow bellied warbler (?).

There’s a pair of Eastern Kingbirds nesting on my Idaho place this summer. It is the first time I’ve seen them around here, I had to look them up. Thanks for the pictures!

Surprised me too as I didn't think the Eastern Kingbird was that far west. But my book shows it as far west as WA and OR and down to TX!
