Another New Bird – a Honeycreeper

We’ve had the cutest new birds visiting the bird feeder lately. At first we saw only the male, a beautiful little bird with a bright blue head. According to my bird books, he is a red-legged honeycreeper, a breeding male. The non breeding male is mostly green with darker wings and tail.

After a few days of visiting our feeder, he brought his girlfriend.

Bird watching is so much fun here, and bird listening even more so. I hear so many birds in the woods and trees and have no idea what they are.

Nighttime is equally interesting. Listen to what was going on outside our house last night. It sounded like the birds were laughing! There is nothing to see, but turn up your sound.

    Hi Kim, greetings from snowy and icy Columbus, Ohio. Snow day for our company, so I’m enjoying being home, so the city can plow out the mess on our streets and can go back to work tomorrow. The night sounds were fascinating, didn’t hear a car or boom box music! My kitty, who is sitting next to me, became all ears when she heard the night sounds, so thinking she was responding to something else, I played the video again; sure enough, kitty was all ears again! Really enjoy your photos of the river, birds, flowers, and even the bugs.


    • Oh dear, good luck with all the snow! Brrrrr. You hear music in this neighborhood but mostly on weekends when people are out washing their cars or socializing. At night it’s pretty quiet unless it’s a holiday. We’re on the edge of the city though, and on the edge of our neighborhood with only woods beyond so we have a really good spot. Thanks so much for the comment and I’m glad you enjoy the photos 🙂
