Yesterday was a perfect day for bird watching. Many hummers visited the feeder including Calliope and Rufus Hummingbirds. A House Wren sat on the deck railing chattering continually. An American Goldfinch glowed yellow under the warm sun. I saw a male Calliope Hummingbird on my walk. Also on my walk I watched a Lewis’ Woodpecker confront a European Starling over a potential nest hole in a dead tree. And a Spotted Towhee called from a high perch.

Ken’s mother used to sit and watch the hummingbirds for hours. My mother would have enjoyed them too.

    Great photos, of course. This is the first year I’ve seen Calliopes. The last two years there have been no hummingbirds; before that only Rufous. I’m worried the Calliopes may have booted them out now. Finally the evening grosbeaks have arrived in increasing numbers. Susan
