As I said earlier, both the male and female hairy woodpeckers were in the backyard Friday morning (8-21-2020). The female is on the left habitat stump and the male is on the right one.

Three hummers have been fighting over territorial rights to our backyards. The skirmishes start early in the morning when one perches on a tree two doors down and the others attack. They are finished around 9:30am.

Here is the view from my back deck.

I tried to capture the action with my 7DII + 600L telephoto lens. It was overcast and would rain on occasion. I was really too far away to get good photos, but here is the best sequence of the bunch.

Given the distance, I really don't know if it is worthwhile to try again

On the first day of September a juvie band-tailed pigeon, most likely from the flock that roosts nearby in a neighbor's tree, was looking for seeds beneath my seed feeders.

On 9-14-2020 I finally caught the flock of band-tailed pigeons that roost in a neighbor's tree foraging under my seed feeders. I suspect that one of the birds landed on the peanut feeder and tilted it so that peanuts spilled on the ground. I took these shots through the sliding glass door as the birds would immediately take flight as soon as I opened it.

This pigeon did not seemed interested in the suet in the ground feeder.

Monday afternoon (9-28-2020) I set up on the back deck for the first time in ages. It got really warm.

A beautiful juvie light morph red-tailed hawk perched in a tree on the northern edge of Pine Ridge Park, then flew north over my house. It is about time for the winter visiting red-tails to arrive.

I saw two hummers fighting around one of my feeders, which probably explains why the fluid has been going down faster than usual. One looked like a mature male (lots of red on its head) while the other one looked like this bird, which showed up later in the afternoon.

Reminds me of the song "All Along the Watchtower."
