Backyard Critters – Trailcam Energized


I got my trailcam going lately. On windy days I aim it at stationary objects like this bird squirrel bath.


iNaturalist tells me this is a house finch.


A Blue Jay showing up for the party.


And here we have birds coming and going!!


INaturalist says this is a downy woodpecker.

And a goose whom I encountered on a walk at a local park.

(If you disagree with any ID’s please say something!!)


And a selfie with our Pomeranian puppy, Kodi.

I am linking with Saturday’s Critters

    Not an expert birder here, but I agree with the house finch ID. In your coming and going shot, the two birds at the bottom part of the feeder are birds I don’t think we recognize. I tried using Merlin (a free app developed by Cornell University) and was unsucessful.

    Hello, Alan
    Great sightings at your feeder, you are correct with your id’s.
    The House Finch is a cutie, I like the woodpecker, blue jay and the cute sparrows.
    Your Kodi is a cutie, a nice sized lap dog. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a great weekend.

    It’s great you have such a variety of critters who enjoy the water and food you leave out for them. We’ve seen a couple of blue jays this week while out hiking. Kodi is growing up too fast!
