Friday Sequence; a sequence of poses of recent birds in Seattle.

Friday Sequence; a sequence of poses of recent birds in Seattle.

I wanted to share a few of the birds that flit my way recently. I tried to show a couple of poses of each bird. 

This will be a simple show and tell, you are the ones that will be doing most of the telling 🙂

This is my 77th Bucket or Dawn Chorus. Equal to my present age. A record of some of my experiences recording life around me.

Getting a still of a kinglet can be a challenge.

The pussy willows make a nice branch to show size of the kinglet.

This photo reminds me of an eager student with a hand waving in the air wanting to answer a question. 

A Bewick’s wren darts around the bushes looking for bugs. The erect tail moves as it hunts.

It would take a lot of those bugs to make a meal. Side view.

Anna’s Hummingbirds are residents the year round in Seattle. I have yet to find on on a nest although that should be happening. This male is located in the same area about every time I visit.

But when I waited for the light to shine on the gorget, it lit up like a beacon.

Have to wait for just the right angle. Looking to its left.

Looking straight ahead

My last bird was a surprise recently at our feeder. I’ve posted a couple of photos before, but I am going to add them to this group today because it was such a special sighting.

Another look from the other side.

I promise you the next Friday Sequence will be very different from my recent ones. It will be the first in a series of Buckets about Ms. JG and my travels to Belize. 

I hope a couple of others will help out with posting Friday Sequence Buckets while getting ready for my trip and actually on my trip.
