Friday Evening

Some shots from our back yard this evening:  hungry hummers, acorn woodpecker at the feeder, and a visit from Owen.

In years past we've had as many as 13 or 14 hummers that come to our feeder (see photo below - taken in 2006), but this year we've spotted only 4 (maybe 5)  visitors - it's hard to tell because they move so quickly!    Besides the feeder, they have been enjoying the honeysuckle and sage in our yard.

And of course our day wouldn't be complete without a visit from our dear friend, Owen.

Mr. Woodpecker has to work at his free meal, as he's a bit too big to fit on the perches at the feeder.

Hope everyone's weekend is off to a good start!
