My back yard

These ruffus humming birds are around every year. I could and do spend hours watching them.

                                                      White crowned sparrow
                                                 Red breasted nut hatch
                                                 Black-capped chickadee
This little guy has been around since I first moved here. He is lots of fun to watch. I put peanuts out for hum and some days he has a heck of a time keeping the birds away from them. He puts on lots of mile running up the trees to chase them away. The birds just flit to another tree. The squirrel then runs down his tree and up the other one and the birds just jump back and off the squirrel goes again. Some times this goes on for an hour. Great fun.
