All Backyard Stuff
Lately it seems I seldom need to leave our yard to see wildlife. As the various warblers move through our area of Iowa, some have stopped by our feeders – even if only for a brief pause. Sometimes I see them; I imagine I miss most of the avian visitors. Many of their stops are so brief.
Today I saw and captured images (not the best) of two bird species I seldom see in our yard. I will share the mediocre images here, even though the photos are not that good. Please use them as references as you watch the birds in your yards.

Fox Squirrel in Tree:
At our neighbor’s home the house finch eggs have hatched.
