I think this is a female Yellow-brested chat.ID please!!
Mrs. Cardinal came back. She was eating the safflower seeds that I spilled.
We compiled a group of videos from 2019 of the beautiful Summer Tanagers that live in our area and come to visit. While it’s mainly videos of the males and their beautiful songs, a surprise guest makes an appearance in the end!
This little girl slammed into my shed wall! Poor thing! I’m very certain this is a Ruby-crowned Kinglet but I wanted to post it with question just to make sure before I add it to my Life List…
Sorry for the 1-star pics 🙁

She let me come right up to her making for a great photo opp. In this picture, she was incubating ten eggs.
This picture was taken by our Audubon BirdCam that we set up on the Mallard nest.
This photo was taken by our Audubon BirdCam that we set up on a Mallard nest in our yard. She had just been scared off the nest by a Gray Squirrel, and in this picture, she was warily sneaking back to her eggs.
A mother robin, nicknamed Serene (because she is calm, patient, and seemingly unafraid around humans), built a nest on an a/c unit across from my apartment and has become a popular “neighbor” in our neighborhood. It’s all because of her and her mate that I joined NestWatch and learned so much about urban birds. She has been so busy with her young, she’s been looking tired and dry, so it’s about time she took a nice, long, cool dip in my birdbath. We had a nice rainfall last night. By late afternoon, after one more fledgling took leave of her nest, she made frequent visits, with one last visit being just for her. She was truly in the lap of luxury. Her expressions were of pure joy, I swear.
I am very happy she didn’t mind I was close by to take photographs of her. Zoom lens or not, she stood in that birdbath for a nice while.
