One of the last three chipping sparrows. We've had a couple of white-throated sparrows, too (but they're notoriously difficult to photograph here.) I think it's safe to say now that the goldfinches are gone, headed back to Northern breeding climes. (10 days later, I was proven wrong on the goldfinches.)
This Carolina wren was singing up a storm right near the back door. It was around this time 2 years ago that we found the first of 2 clutches of eggs out in our shed.
There have been no obvious cardinal deaths since the other day, so it seems that one we found was an unfortunate fluke.
More indigo buntings have been showing up in the past day or so.
The annual "rough-looking raccoon rodeo" continues out back every afternoon around 2pm. (My video's about a minute long.)
