In the morning, a quick walk down to the dippers. In the afternoon, a tree filled with toucans showing off for us. And in the middle, nothing much. Not anything exciting, really. Unless you mean the q-u-e-t-z-a-l! Yea, what a day it was today! :-)
First, some birds from our morning walk. The stars were the dippers, of course, but before we got to them we saw a bunch of brown jays. People have been talking about these so I was quite happy to see them! We had to get out of there though, because there was a crazy dog out to get us. It was on a chain so we weren't worried about ourselves at all, but the poor thing was starting to choke!
I am not now, nor do I ever expect to become, tired of these.
Hahahahaha, these are awesome and hilarious! This picture totally does not do this bird justice. It's all quiet and dark and then BAM! Yellow thighs!
A gorgeous woodpecker. I am a sucker for woodpeckers.
Here they are, the stars of the morning! There are two dippers in this picture. Yes there are! Okay, find the dipper. Now look to its left, half way to the edge of the photo. That's not a rock, it's the top half of the other dipper! Yep, it's mid-dip.
This picture has just one, surveying its domain.
Bored with dippers? No! But it's still nice to see a warbler across the way.
Back to home base. Guess who was at the feeders?

The chlorophonia is back! OMG are you kidding me? Look at how gorgeous...... it's ridiculous.
Yes, yes, we see you, you're gorgeous.
Eventually he had to go.
We rounded out the walk with this little guy. Birders love thrushes and wrens.
And these are kissing! How adorable can you get. :-)
