Can anyone tell me who this bird is? Okay, what species is he? He actually looks like a sparrow with red starting at his upper breast to his head. There is some red on his back. I declare I watched birds at home and in the woods here in NC growing up and I never saw this bird.
There is a family of these nesting over our car. They do poop on the car if I don’t pull it in far enough. We get a great view from our swing. They are interesting to watch. The entire family now is watching them. From where I sit I can watch them eat the seeds I have out, I even have a hummer at times at the same time. I put a water jug out since our weather has been so dry.
Since my zoom is gone on the camera it is hard to see them for the poop of the mama and daddy. They are messy house keepers.
We finally go to count beaks today, there are four. We are leaving on vacation, two weeks in the mountains. I imagine the birdies will be flying by then. If not we will get a chance to see them learn.
Bird watching is fun, even Stella is into it. I am amazed at the animal instincts. When to start feeding them bugs and worms seems a tough call, but they do it with no problem.
I hope you are having a great Memorial Day weekend.
I labeled 1946 Olds, but this is the 1948 Olds. I searched for the first car after WWII and this is what was shown.
I am almost certain, the first car offered after WWII was this 1946 FORD
