Little bird, little bird

Small blue-grey bird in my tree

I had a lit­tle blue-grey friend come for a quick vis­it at lunchtime.

I’m no bird­watch­er, but I think he’s a white-breast­ed nuthatch. Please cor­rect me if I’m wrong.

Update: Now with a rabbit!

Lat­er on in the day, around cof­fee­time in the after­noon, I got to say “Hi” to Hoss, who was rest­ing in the back yard.

A bird and a reflection

I’m not sure what the bird in the pho­to above is; any­one know? It’s a wad­ing bird of some kind, spot­ted down on 1st Street North near the river.

Here’s a larg­er ver­sion of the pic­ture, in case that helps.

Update: Accord­ing to my sis­ter, who I think is cor­rect, it’s a blue heron.

Also on 1st Street North near the riv­er: a lamp­post reflect­ed in a pool.
