Feather Patterns

Miscellaneous songbirds from earlier this year.

Male Red-Winged Blackbird (the Blackbirds have gone north, now).



Female Red-Winged Blackbird



A Male Downy Woodpecker (they stay all year)

Female Brown-Headed Cowbird (we still have some of these around).
 At first glance, she might appear a dull, dusky bird, but in the right light...she's stunning!
 

Dark-eyed Junco (they've gone north, too)
 

Tiny little Field Sparrow (I believe they've gone north as well)

Near a Cowbird so you can see the size difference.
And if the above birds weren't flashy enough for your tastes, a male Northern Cardinal in a swing (we have these all year, too.)
