The birds are House Finch females. Homer and I have laughed at the cute little birds as they have their spats at our feeders, they so remind me of the church ladies who think they have sat in the same seat every Sunday and God help anyone who unknowingly is in that special seat...

Red-Tailed Hawk visitor

Homer and I are at our normal perches on the kitchen porch the other day we notice,  that no birds were at the feeders, strange huh we starting talking about for the last couple of days, there has not been many birds at certain times of the day. When all of a sudden into the pine tree flies a red-tailed hawk. No wonder! Later he or she flew onto the fence surrounding the area our feeders are in. Such fun to watch this gorgeous bird of prey, it sat on the fence for about 20 or so minutes. So we have gotten up close and personal.

It was back this morning doing 2 swoops across the yard. Our chipmunk is missing he may have been lunch, hope not.

Humming bird and House Finch

Homer and I make a habit out of sitting on the kitchen porch watching the birds at the feeders. we also have 2 humming bird feeders. The other morning we we at our usual chairs when all of a sudden this tiny little humming bird is chasing a house finch female this went on for several minutes, as the chase went from one limb to the other with this tiny mad as a hornet humming bird ruled the roost over the bigger bird.  We had never seen this behavior before, two people now has a education of humming bird mad...what a treat to watch but I'm sure what ever the house finch did it will not happen again.
