While climbing around Haden found a friend, or two (he took the second photo), and I found a few too, but don’t ask me what kind they are.
I thought maybe this was Towhee, but the red eye throws me. After looking him up I found that he is a Spotted Towhee.
Reminded me of a bluebird but it had no brownish/orange breast, just white. I did see an eastern bluebird in the same area. Could he be a Mountain Bluebird?
While watching the rock climbers this little house wren (at least that’s what I think it was) came and perched on a post.
There were a lot of these tiny flutters around. Not sure what they were but not much bigger than a hummingbird and very quick. I didn't research long but the closest thing in my bird book was maybe the Black-tailed Gnatcatcher? I think he was too small to be a Vireo.
Doesn’t she look like royalty?
This little fellow (Red-backed Junco) plopped right down in front in of me.
Then he flew above and serenaded me.
If you traveled with my fellows you would be as amazed as I am that I got any birds. So while these aren’t as nice as I’d like at least I got a few and I think I could figure out what they are if I went to look them up. Most of these are birds we don't have in Wisconsin and since being home I haven't seen many birds in my yard at all so I'm glad I got these and a few other new ones while traveling.
