Wren on the Seed Feeder

Pictures: A shot of the Cactus Wren getting a sunflower seed or two. The Wrens will check out all possible food areas, Suet feeder, peanut feeder, Quail Block and the seed feeder. The wren is the only bird I see on all the feeders, they don’t want to miss a thing πŸ™‚.

Not the greatest lighting on this shot, the bird was in the shade and the background in the sunlight.

Exercise: I got back to my walking today after a couple days off.

Outside: Today temperature’s made it up too 100 degrees but the mornings have been cool enough to work outside so I did some piddling on some shelves I am making this morning. It is nice to get out of the RV a bit. Tomorrow is going to be another hot day but a major cool down coming Wednesday, I look forward to it. Oh, it is also giving a 50% chance of rain … that is a high chance here. A rain would be a good thing.

Chilling: The weekend is here, the heat is on, and I am just a-chilling πŸ™‚.
Update 5pm: Stayed below mid 90s today, not too bad.

New Area/Site: My new site has trees just outside my door and I am hoping and believing that I will have more variety of birds here because the birds feel safer with the tree cover. I am already having more of my favorites in this area(also more of my non-favorites such as House sparrows) but at least I don’t have to worry as much about them wasting my neighbors rig with their waste, because I don’t have a neighbor on my RV’s door side were I feed πŸ‘.

Wren

Pictures: Here is the Cactus Wren in my feeder area. I have moved sites within the RV Park and in a few days you may start to notice a little difference in the background because my new site don’t have a plank fence because it is an end site on my door side. Might be a few days as I start shooting new shots here.

Stretch

Pictures: This Calliope Hummer is the smallest of the hummers that come to my feeder and it needs to stretch out a bit to reach the drinking hole if setting on the landing rail. Most of the time Calliope Hummers hover to drink.
