Acorn And Black-headed

Pictures: Acorn Woodpecker and a couple more Black-headed Grosbeaks.

I didn’t get very close to the Acorn Woodpecker.


I think this one is a young Male Black-headed Grosbeak.


And I think this one is an adult Male.


Moved: Not far still near Flagstaff but a little farther away and on a different road.

Young Black-headed Grosbeak

Pictures: Here is a young Black-headed Grosbeak (I think it is a young bird because it’s head is kind of specked black). I had never notice the yellow on the belly before so maybe it is just on the young ones.
Update: No I was wrong the Adults have the yellow patch too, but not as bright.

As always, click on the image a couple of times for the big picture.

Chores : Today was chores day so I went into Flagstaff to do a little laundry and shopping.

New theme

Blog update: I am still playing with the themes and I like this one “Scratchpad” except the header is a bit larger than I like and each post don’t have the number of comments or a place to start one ( you have to click the post to leave one or read the others). However, I think I will let this one ride for a bit and see if it grows on me.

Update; back to “Hemingway Rewritten” theme. I like everything about this one except the header image size ….. again! Yes, I can crop the image but the space dedicated to the image remains 😦 Well, when you do free you can’t fuss too much about it all 😉

Update; Now to “Big Brother” theme. Much smaller header image 🙂 and still very open.

Pictures: Today’s pictures are of a Female Black-headed Grosbeak.



Weather: We are getting a hard rain today. We get a little about every day but some days it really comes down and today is one of the “coming down days”.

Exercise: I have been a little lazy for the last two days but today I did get out for a 2 mile walk.

Black-headed Grosbeak

Pictures: This Black-headed Grosbeak would not come into the feeder area but watch with interest from afar. These are the best shots I could get in the distance. I also seen the female Grosbeak today but she wouldn’t come out to play 😦  She stayed hidden behind the limbs and such. Both the male and female Grosbeak are being shy.

Male, Black-headed Grosbeak.

Little better but still not close enough.

Exercise: I got my two miles in today. Yesterday I did a little better with two walks so maybe 3 our 4 miles.
