The backyard speakeasy

We got a new bird feeder this summer, and lately it has been a hub of activity for many species.  Allow me to introduce some of our guests.  They are a bit skittish- I believe it has become an underworld dive.  I have not gotten pics of two guests we know as "The DoveFather" and a Blue Jay known as "Squealer."  But I have managed a few candid shots...


Of course, Scooter is the unquestioned king...

Elements of the dreaded "Sparrow Mafia..."


Bird:  "Seriously, how do you do that?"






This is Tits, aka Mrs Scooter







The chickadee...

...and Woody...


Hey, where you goin'?

"Shhh... slippin' into the back room fer a sec..."

"Okay... time to go!"



"Oh the line forms... to the right, hey..."

    Apparently, I can only post to your blog with GOOGLE, as my 1st attempt on Bing didn't seem to go through. If it did, delete this comment.
    ANYWAY...
    ---Those birds on the fence look like members of the "Sparrowgetti" Family.
    ---The chipmunk...very cool. Must be related to Alfie Overbite of the Seville Family.
    ---Chickadee? Obviously the floor show.
    ---Woody? Gotta be the bouncer.

    Excellent photos.

    Stay safe (and keep Scooter out of the bathtub hooch) up there, brother.

    1. Now you know- Bing blows.

      Chickadee- I'm not sure about him. You can see in the one picture how the sparrows load up- Chick grabs one seed and goes. The Dovefather was by tonight with two subCapos...

    1. Scooter is both fat and entitled. He was sitting on the fence looking out at the yard today. I did consider putting up some tinfoil just to tick him off, but it's easier to just send Scrappy out...
