Bird Up Close

What a thrill I had this morning as I was working (slowly) in my garden, pulling up weeds. I looked up and was I ever surprised to see a Northern Flicker perched on the fence. I watched for a while – he or she hopped down and pecked around on the ground for a good while and then flew back up to perch on the fence. I turned away and thought about what a great sight – suddenly WHOOSH the Northern Flicker flew right past my ear – I flinched – and ducked!!

Earlier I was very happy to see a. Stellar Jay and of course numerous finches and even humming birds.
