Can you spot the night herons?




We promise to stop posting night heron pictures. They are our favorite subject because they are large, stay still and are not easily spooked. However, we had to post this one because there are two in it. See if you can spot them. (You will need to click on the photo to get a larger version).

Two downy woodpeckers

Downy Woodpeckers
Here is a photo of two downy woodpeckers at the feeder. We think the one on the top with the red head is a juvenile male and the lower one its mother. We've been watching this pair, sometimes joined by a third male woodpecker, for about a week. The female occasionally feeds the male and he doesn't fly very well so we think he's a juvenile.

Another Night Heron Picture

Here's another picture of the night heron. This time, he was on the other side of the bridge, fishing from a pile of sticks.
