What do you call a wild ugly duck swimming happily in the canal?  Rather, what is it’s name? After looking and looking, it appears to be a common domestic duck and not wild enough to make it into a bird book. Who knew? Maybe it’s like buying chickens, but with ducks… some escape into the wild. Anyway, he was happy doing what ducks do and his mate was close by.

I am forever continuing to learn about nature, including the domestic it seems. While I try, I don’t always get it right, so If you know it to be something different, please let me know.

Hairy Woodpecker, USA (3)Here’s a little female Hairy Woodpecker, crooked beak and all, who has taken up residence at our house with her mate this winter. About anytime you look out you will see her. Have had other resident birds before, but not woodpeckers. Fun to watch and always learning. Maybe she had her beak where it shouldn’t have been? Happy day & birding~

Winter storms have kept us inside, so I’ve put out the winter feeders to help these little creatures weather the recent high winds and deep snow.

All sorts of birds have come, but now have to battle the starlings that recently showed up too. Yes, I know starlings have to eat also, but really! This little nuthatch, though, seems to have the tree all to himself as he walks often upside down, sideways, and then changes directions while creeping and moving all around the limb picking at it. He doesn’t have to battle too much the other birds at the feeders, though he and his mate still joins the black-capped chickadees and tufted titmouse at the feeder. Little lucky birds!

The small (about 5 and 3.4 inches) white-breasted nuthatch are usually found in pairs year round and are common in eastern North America, most often near open forests with oak or pine trees.
