I'm always Thankful for the birds visiting my feeders. The Downy Woodpecker is always enjoyable to watch. This one is definitely a female because there is no red mark on the back of her neck.
The House Sparrow visits our area year round. This sparrow has a large black spot on the throat extending down to the chest which indicates he is a male. The female has no black throat patch. Notice his brown back and single white wing bars.
The White-Breasted Nuthatch is also a year-round visitor. You can't help but notice the black cap and white face, neck and belly. He has a black oil sunflower seed in his mouth in the larger picture on the left.
The hummingbird is always a fun welcomed guest at the feeders. This female Ruby-Throated Hummingbird has no neck patch which reflects red like the male.
That's it this week for at the feeders and in the trees. Thanks for stopping in - Judy.
