The Eastern Phoebe was back on the fence today. This is such a pretty little bird.

The brightly colored bluebird was back too, sitting on a wire as usual. The lighting was odd, a quickly changing mix of sun and gray clouds, so the bird’s colors look a bit different from the sunny photos of the other day.

A glimpse of red high up in a tree, and I found a Red-bellied Woodpecker.

My Max, looking like a very serious, very watchful guard dog. His head is about at my knee level and his bark is more of a yip than something deep and ferocious. But he takes his job  very seriously and is always vigilant, ready to scare off the mailman, the trash truck, the UPS delivery person, etc.
