I love your birb pics!!

Also that last set, the top bird looks like he's nodding off to sleep during a school lecture, and the next bird's expression is like when you get jostled awake and you're like "what year is it"

In my experience I think grackles just permanently have that expression

FLUFF BIRD

where do i sign up for cat facts-style daily texts of your wild birbs raze?

only semi-related, but there's a pileated woodpecker pair that nests in my woods, so i might have to pay you to come photograph them

as an incentive, the male's call sounds like laughter

YOU ARE NOW SIGNED UP FOR BIRD FACTS

YES PLS

There's one that lives in our area that sometimes perches within view of the house. IT IS SO BIGGG. We just have a pair of downy woodpeckers that visit the feeder though, sometimes a red-bellied one does. I can hear them pecking but I've never heard them laugh. xD I'll have to look that up!!

& Kiri yesss it is nice I blame you in part for getting me into birds like I blame you for other things

BIRD FACT COMING UP okay not really

I just wanted to mention that two individuals of a species I hadn't seen before came to the feeders today, and it just made me laugh at how wildly different the plumage between the two sexes are, like wow.

This is a picture of a female rose-breasted grosbeak:


I saw her first and was like "omg new bird cool face stripes what is it" but had such a hard time finding out what it was bc Google didn't like my queries haha. But THEN my mom and I saw a totally different-looking bird come to the feeder (v distinct and MUCH easier to Google) and I realized they had the same beak. I guessed that the other one had been the lady, and Google confirmed when I looked up the male.

This is a picture of a MALE rose-breasted grosbeak:

So yes I was like WOW K. It was just the perfect example of how ridiculous the sexual dimorphism in birds is. Most of the examples of the species that have visited the feeder so far were tame (e.g., the red dot on downy woodpecker, red vs dun-colored cardinals) but NOPE NO SUBTLETY.

i swear birdwatching as someone who knows nothing about birds makes me feel like a detective
