RAINDROPS ARE FALLING ON MY HEAD..

YOU MIGHT ENJOY THIS RAINY SATURDAY---IF YOU'RE A DUCK! LOL
This morning we had such a flurry of visitors not the least of which were the Mallard Couple.  They have been nesting near our yard for all 5 yrs. we have been living here and are devoted to one another.  The female came right up to the house to eat fallen seed from the feeder while her mate kept watch from afar.

I just love seeing them so much!  The rain drops falling on their heads did not seem to bother them at all-ha!


Next came a Male Downy Woodpecker to the suet.
He was so intent on his work to get the suet and seed and very cooperative with our camera shots through the den window.
Then the Cardinal Stopped by in the feeder...

Doesn't he look wonderful in his red robe and designer shades-ha!
Next, I have a challenge for you!  We were unable to identify this bird on the Suet.  It was the size of a Bluebird but much darker blue.  The head was very dark gray with a white stripe starting at the back of the crown and down into the neck feathers.  We could not find anything like this bird in all of our birdbooks here.  If you can identify him or her, please let us know!





Our Mallard couple bidding a fond fairwell as they are paddle off into the pond to seek out yet another feeder. We never tire of observing the birds in our life...
