Darkling Birdling

Puppy Tao has been upgraded, so this post has moved. It will eventually be unavailable at this location.

Another nice evening meant another opportunity to hang out in the backyard and see who stopped by.

This House Finch and his spouse are nesting in a bush by the deck, but he takes many opportunities during the day to fly up to a higher branch and sing his crazy gallimaufry of a song.

Later on, we moved down by the river again to relax, and a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird visited on and off as the day darkened.

It was late, the sunset backlit her, and she is only a few inches long, but she spent enough time with us that I was able to get a couple of nice shots—my first ever of a hummingbird.
