Hawk eating 

Red-shouldered Hawk, Louisville, Kentucky, 2021-01-14

In the first photo, the hawk is watching my backyard feeders. In the second photo, the hawk has snatched one of my guest birds, and is eating it.

Male Downy Woodpecker, Louisville, Kentucky, 2021-01-11

They love suet.

The black spots on the outer white tail feathers indicate this is a Downy Woodpecker, not a Hairy Woodpecker. The red spot on the back of its head indicate that this is a male.

There were 3 hot air balloons drifting over the park this morning. Not a regular sight.

I'm the spring the water is higher, covering all these rocks, and making the land on the right an island.

Some Robins migrate in the winter, but others are resident.

Mourning Dove, Louisville, Kentucky, 2021-01-08

Its all fluffed up and cozy, trying to stay warm and nap.

Black Vultures, Louisville, Kentucky, 2020-12-27

Some people think these birds are "gross", but I think they're handsome.

Female Eastern Bluebird, Louisville, Kentucky, 2020-12-27

You can tell it's a female because the head/back/wings/tail have a very dull blue, almost gray color. The males are a much brighter blue. To me, the first photo shows the resemblance to its cousin the American Robin.

Personal instance for myself.
