name that bird...













Benita shared the love with a young cow today.  Fun to watch her take the time to groom another beast.  Transfered more water out of the far away tank that needs to be emptied before moving it to the greenhouse gutter system.  Got one load pumped out while gas was dripping out of the generator.  Gotta track down some replacement gas line for the old girl before she goes back into service.  Bees have discovered one of the waterboxxes for some guzzlin.  70,79,46,0,B

That is the Desert Tuff Titmouse. Don't ever try to rub it the wrong way!

I think that's a yellow-throated vortexy

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Jim McCulloch said...

More specifically, the Audubon's (western) form of the yellow-rumped warbler.

It's an ANGRY bird!

Patti Morden said...

first time posing - long time follower of your work. The bird looks to be an Audubon Warbler - I would think a male. What a cutie!

Yup, I am thinking a yellow rumped warbler or as we call them here in the NW, a yellow rumpie.

Sure wish we could see his rump & the top of his head. (The bird, I mean.)

I'll guess a Virginia's Warbler.

That many bees should mean a hive nearby. A hive nearby means honey. And all good bears love honey, or so Winnie-the-Pooh says.

I'd name that cute bird Harold.

Michael Peck said...

As a beekeeper myself, it might be a good idea to consider keeping a hive. It would be really good for your greenhouse plants!

Yeah, what John C., Jim, Patti and Marilyn said... but
double whammy on what leilani wrote... I laughed so hard that people turned and looked at me like I was crazy. Love surfing in public.
I agree you should find the queen and start a new hive... you have all the stuff.

Cindy, it doesn't appear that we'll get an official ID on the bird, but if I had won I was going to demand as my prize that everybody, including the entire Field Lab staff + all branch office personnel & every last commenter on the blog here, would have to show their rump and the top of their heads, since it seems like those parts get covered up most of the time out there in T-land.

Even the migratory critters have to keep those parts under wraps whilst passing through there, it looks like! ;-)

John Coffman and Jim McCulloch win...except this little guy didn't have a yellow rump. leilani - all I can say is that my rump and the top of my head are both white and hairless.

That is now called the Yellow Rumped Warbler. A bit ruffled looking.
