The photo above is of my current favorite backyard bird. I could watch this mocker for hours! He has a real hard time accessing the suet on this feeder, but it doesn't stop him from trying. He flies into the feeder, grabs a chunk of suet and eats it on the ground. If you enlarge the photo, you can see the suet in his beak. You can also see all of the seeds and strawberry spillage the birds have done most recently. I am dreading cleaning this up once the snow melts. Talk about a rake job!
One of 8 cedar waxwings I saw this morning. They were all on one tree eating bittersweet.
My nemeses bird, the great blue heron. This bird does not like getting its photo taken and will do whatever possible to prevent it. This causes me to stalk him the way the paparazzi stalks Brittney. I was able to get this one before it flew away. I wish the tree branch wasn't there, but I couldn't take one more step or it would have flown off and cursed me.
