The 2 hummers at McCormick's, first house after the corner house where
Sunset Lakes Blvd. makes a right angle turn, have survived our 25 degree
After I arrived in the yard, finally counting the gadwalls, circa 70, a high
for the lake, a young splotchy (first year) bald eagle flew low over the
yard and landed across the lake.
The Black-chinned was vigorously chasing the other hummer and feeding and
sitting in the willow in plain sight very cooperatively.
I went home and discovered a Sharpie (Sharp-shinned hawk) sitting on the top
of our burn pile. Of course the feeders got very quiet immediately. He is
in a transitional plumage, with splotchy feathers with streaking and barring
on its front.
The ducks got up suddenly so I started out of the house to see if the eagle
was around, and stupidly scared the sharpie. But I think it is close by in
Will now look for Toast, the Cinnamon teal who is somewhere on the lake I'm
sure, since Randy found it across the lake directly from us yesterday.
