This is a cute baby grackle (the babies are all out in full force). This guy has a seed his dad gave him after he squawked for food. I love the pretty shade of green of his eyes & I never noticed the green eye colour before.
This male ruby-throated hummingbird perched constantly on the thing that holds the hummingbird feeder. I think he’s a new guy because he took a bit to get comfortable with my camera. Look at his cute, tiny claws! I took a picture of the same male perched in a nearby tree in silhouette as well.
Here are its cute tiny feet, enlarged. This seems patently maladaptive: a hummingbird with bigger feet could find more perches!
