Feathered Friday on a Thursday - Tiny Guys

It seems my last Friday scheduled post didn't actually take so here it is on a Thursday. So here are some tiny guys for #featheredfriday by @melinda010100

The first tiny guys is a black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus). They tend to be pretty tame but they do hop around quite a bit making photographs difficult.

Little guy hung around while I was checking my morel mushroom spots.

The golden crowned kinglets (Regulus satrapa) are still around. These guys are even more tame than the black-capped chickadees but they are twice as bouncy and they are smaller making photographs difficult.

I finally got a shot of its face but by now it was high up in the tree.

Can you see the bird in this photo?

How about this photo?

This is a brown creeper (Certhia americana), they have perfect camouflage for tree bark and they creep their way up the trees looking for tiny insects in the bark.

I have yet to get a close shot of these guys as I usually only notice them high up in the trees creeping around. They are about the size of the chickadee and they are constantly moving around climbing up the trees.

Two large red tailed hawks were flying around in circles above while I was trying to get a good photo of the brown creeper. Too bad the branches were in the way. These guys had the squirrels squawwing at eachother warning of predators in the area.

I heard some quacking in the weeds and was hoping to find some wood ducks.

But as usual they turned out to be mallards. Wood ducks quack a bit but mostly have a funny high pitched squeaking sound and they are very skittish. These mallards are super tame and they are probably pairing up getting ready to start a nest somewhere.

That's all for now, thanks for looking :-) Happy #featheredfriday on a Thursday lol.
