Ruffed Grouse - Hello and Good Evening

Be careful, won't you? There are foxes around. We have seen them travelling through these woods on several occasions lately.

Northern Flicker

Robin and another little bird
They are very accident-prone at this stage, and we have to keep our curtains/blinds closed so they don't crash into a window.

This young Northern Flicker is having to get used to routing for insects on his own. He spent a considerable amount of time last evening investigating the pickings under the edge of a paving stone.

 Downy feathers are still noticeable.
