The baby Red Bellied Woodpecker is starting to get some red feathers on his head. He waited on the tree while his mother flew back and forth with some suet.

A red winged blackbird with two babies has been visiting the feeder. The babies are quite noisy waiting for the mother to bring them food.

Great Blue Heron

Great Blue Heron

We took our walk early this morning and surprised a great blue heron. He flew off after a few seconds but we were able to get this photo. We're posting this for Lana, who told us she loves herons.

I saw a great blue heron today (Sun. 12/27) in my backyard in Plainfield, NJ. I took a picture of it with my cell phone. I could not believe it. I've never seen a bird this tall. He looks like a Crane. He has a very long neck, long legs and an expansive wing span. Is he lost?

Everyone needs to rest sometimes

Mallards
Squirrel
Black cat sleeping

It's been too hot and everyone is sleepy. We caught the mallards taking a midday nap in our yard. George, our cat, likes to sleep when it's hot and sunny (or when it's cold and rainy). Mike caught this squirrel resting peacefully, blissfully unaware of Chris' feelings for his species.
