I see them so often, I sometimes forget how pretty blue jays are.

jhfrench:

Lazuli buntings are striking birds found in western North America. I love that even the females—which, like with most birds, are drabber than the male—have a tinge of blue!
⠀⠀
This piece is a companion to my indigo bunting painting, and will appear in the next issue of Living Bird in a profile featuring related eastern and western species. Having recently moved from coast to coast, it was a nice project to tie together my past year of birding!
⠀⠀
Lazuli buntings for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

LAZBs are known as “fire followers”. They like the flowered hillsides that grow up in the early years after a chaparral wildfire.

If you’ve followed me long enough you know that many of my favorite local birding sites burned in the massive Thomas Fire in December of 2017. We’re now T-plus-18-months, and the flowering hillsides are full of these beautiful birds. I saw a female this morning; here’s a photo of a male that I took a few weeks ago.

Hope to get more barn swallow pics but I couldn’t today.  It was storming.  Hate that its eyes are darkened where you can’t see them.

3-10-19 First time I’ve seen a wood pecker at the suit feeders. Usually it’s the nuthatch, chickadees, or juncos that nibble on the suit. I was pretty excited to see a woodpecker. Female northern flicker.

Snow geese (Anser caerulescens) and Ross’s geese (Anser rossii), at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, New Mexico. The Ross’s are the smaller birds. They also lack the black grin patch found on a snow goose’s lower bill.

While home sick today, I looked out my window to see this guy on the fence in the backyard! I grabbed my camera and lens and he or she let me get lots of photos. It chased around the squirrels and changed perches several times. No squirrels were eaten.

Feathers of Fortitude
The birds of the Arctic tundra are fascinating. There are many that spend breeding seasons here, only to escape to the south for winter. Relatively few brave the harshest winter conditions and seem to thrive where most humans find it difficult to do so. The Canada Jay, also known as the Gray Jay or Whisky Jack, is one of those birds. It demonstrates a resiliency and a relative lack of fear of humans. Their feathers of fortitude keep them frosty but unfrozen in a land where temperature frequently dip below -40 degrees. #CanadaJay

Spotted Towhees live in dry habitats. Some scientists have suggested that the bold white spots on Spotted Towhees’ backs help them blend in to the sun-dappled undergrowth. I love the way the orange blends into the yellow on the chest.
Thanks for that fun fact @allaboutbird

This looks like a Black-headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus).

If you go to her Instagram she corrected “Spotted Towhee” to “Black-headed Grosbeak”, but she left the Spotted Towhee fun fact that she copied from AllAboutBirds.org more or less intact, so it now tells you that “some scientists have suggested that the bold white spots on their [Black-headed Grosbeaks’] backs help them blend in to the sun-dappled undergrowth.” Who knew? 😜

But it is a nice photo.
