Wednesday Porch birds

Birding was slow this morning. It looks to me like the white crown sparrows have started moving north. Just a few days ago, I had a bunch coming to the feeders. Today there were only one or two.

The white winged doves are still here in mass. They don't coo much, but their wings certainly tell us when they have taken off - swoosh!

Best of the few photos today was this red bellied woodpecker. I sure hope there are some woodpecker chicks that will come to my feeder when they are bigger!

By the way, this photo was taken early in the afternoon. The sunlight was somewhat filtered. This feeder is shaded. I used fill flash with my better beamer to get better lighting on the woodpecker.
