Here's the first Red-breasted Nuthatch I've ever seen. They're pretty unusual in Kentucky. It's cousin, the White-breasted Nuthatch is pretty common here. Looks like they both love being upside-down.

Ruby-throated Hummingbird.

These little cuties hang out a lot more now that I make homemade hummingbird nectar for them! So spoiled!

A couple more photos of the juvenile Cooper's Hawk patrolling my backyard. I was excited to see it, but didn't want to eat my normal feeder birds.

Here's a (shaky) video of the Juvenile Cooper's Hawk searching for the bird it dropped: youtube.com/watch?v=ogXbijyb0U

There's a 2sec part at 1:03 where it grabs the prey bird, if you want to skip over/to it.

Dead bird 😦 

Trash kills. A dead Pileated Woodpecker hangs from fishing line that was tangled in a low branch overhanging a river.
