I also saw what remain a couple of "mystery birds."
Unfortunately this was the best shot I got of this one, which was fairly small (about 4" long,) & lost a couple of downy feathers tangling with some kind of flying insect.
This is a young...something. It was larger than the other, probably about cardinal-sized. Any help you can provide with an ID for either would be appreciated, as usual.
This short movie was taken from my deck after some rain the other day. It doesn't encompass the total bird chaos of the entire yard, but you'll get the point.
In other news, my wonderful & talented husband, Charles, posted "Killing Trail," an e-book of Western stories the other day. If you don't have a Kindle, there's an app for that.
