When the snow came earlier this week we saw an enormous increase in the birds at our feeder. Here are the usual sparrows and juncos, and below the larger towhee nudging his way in.
Of course there's our resident Anna's hummingbird trying to avoid getting snowballs on his beak while feeding.
But then there was this one, new to me and quite a bit bigger than the others. I couldn't find it in my bird book, even with its beautiful plumage. Any idea what it is?
When we lived in the city we never paid much attention to birds but up here on the hill we're captivated.
