A mourning dove takes a drink, then takes flight

Life at the house sparrow feeder: a house finch waits up top, and a tufted titmouse waits on the pole, while the house sparrows
dominate the feeder.

Every day a blue jay comes for a drink. First you hear its loud squawk, then it sails across the yard a few times, and then finally
it lands, has a quick drink, and takes off. One day I saw it splash around in one of the bird baths, but it's quite camera shy.

Every day around dusk, the northern cardinals arrive. Here is the female (pink/orange beak).


And the male northern cardinal

Pale pink beak: is it a juvenile or an adult female northern cardinal?


Another bird that has started appearing every day: the white-breasted nuthatch
