Yard Birds late May

While enjoying a beer or two last Friday evening, I was able to pickup 3 new yard birds for the year from the deck. Cedar Waxwings were present in the yard for the first time this year, a Great-crested Flycatcher was calling from the back woodlot and a north bound Common Nighthawk passed high overhead.

Hummingbirds have been at the feeder more frequently this past week. The male acts aggressive toward the female, which is not too much of a surprise... seeing he does not help the female with domestic chores.

This female Ruby-throated Hummingbird slips in for a long drink, while the male is bullying elsewhere!
