    The only thing I can tell about this one tonight is that the wind is gusting pretty hard.

    The barred owl (link in post #49) is active just now, turning around in such a way that at least one owlet was partly visible. Its head was peeking out. I'm sure it can't wait to get out from under the parent who is nearly suffocating it.

    The eagles' nest I looked at just now has that lived-in look. No Marie Kondo tidying up going on here! Old feathers lying around, plus other bits of debris. Better not to know just what it is, maybe.

    and I wish these kids wouldn't sleep so close to the edge of the nest! Makes this mama worry!

    Haven't been watching lately and missed this event. Here's Fluff and Puff, the barred owl kids!

    Checking nest cams.
    These 2 hummers are having a rough ride in that crowded nest. Looks like they are just about ready to fledge if they don't get flung out by the wind first!

    I'll try to catch the long-eared owl at another time. The message is that it runs on limited solar power.

    Finally got a picture of the beautiful Altamira Oriole that comes daily to bathe in my fountain.
    The picture was taken through the window by my computer.
    He's just beautiful and is the exact same color as the poppies when they are open. The poppies are closed in this picture because a cool breeze had come up and poppies, like Virginia and I, hate the cold!

    Maybe he knows he looks stunning next to the poppies and is striving for color-coordination for your yard, nuthatch!

    That looks like a more colorful bird than the Baltimore oriole--really a spectacular yellow.

    Edited to add: Just noticed that there are two separate photos, and in the second one he's perched on the fountain or birdbath. He looks for all the world as if he knows he's very photogenic and is just waiting to have his picture taken.

    What a beautiful bird Nuthatch. He just comes to your garden and perches there as though he knows he owns it. I bet you don't move a muscle for fear of scaring him off. How do you remember all the names of these birds?
