I thought that this Coata’s Hummingbird might get everybody’s Monday off to a good start.
We are getting a little snow storm today so I’m taking a snow day. I only take feeder shots when I get something cool come in. I would consider a White-winged Crossbill to be considered a cool bird.
Needless to say that it was a busy day at the feeder. That is not unusual, on a typical day, we get American Goldfinch, Black-capped Chickadees, White-breasted Nuthatch, Song Sparrow, Northern Cardinal, Tufted Titmice, and Morning Doves. In the winter, we get Dark-eyed Juncos, White-throated Sparrows and Tree Sparrows added to the mix.
A lot of folks come up to Gloucester to find birds like this Glaucous Gull. I shot this bird three years ago.
If you are coming up to Cape Ann and are stumped by the gulls, I do have some tips. Just click on the gull tips link below.
