I got a close-up look at something that is very common
but that I don't get to see often.

Amongst the crows hanging out at a shopping center parking lot,
not far from the dumpsters (where else?),
was a youngster.
Out of the nest, too big for the nest.
But this young crow's plumage was a fascinating mess to look at.
Only certain parts of the crow's anatomy were
properly, what, 'fledged'?
Wings had lovely glossy black feathers already, likewise much of the tail.
But the young crow's head, breast, and the back below the head
were all fuzzy and dull-looking with chick stuff.

We had a red kite over our field 2 days ago. The first time I have seen one here, though a neighbour said that he saw one about 3 years ago.

I have seen them before down near Oxford, whenever we go down to Basingstoke, but our nearest ones are supposed to be in either Cumbria or Yorkshire.

My parents also had the Oklahoma sound track, Jos although that one (the title track) is not one I remember well. We can sing "Oh What A Beautiful Morning" here though...

To get back to birds. Peanuts have been going down at a crazy rate (needing daily filling up - if I get round to it/feel inclined to do so) on a feeder round the back and the sunflower hearts are also going quickly there.

My camera that way shows some squirrel activity but a lot of it seems to be from a family (parents and 1 offspring?) of jays. There are also a few magpies around.

When I was growing up, my parents had a record of songs from "Oklahoma", which was played often.
Because of this, whenever I see red kites these song lines comes to me:

"Sit alone and talk,
Or watch a hawk

Early yesterday morning (which was actually 'Norfolk Day'!) I saw Mr and Mrs Red Kite soaring overhead, plus their two young ones. The male was calling "Kwee! Kwee!". They circled around our end of the village then headed off towards the lake near Fustyweed. I was really pleased to see they had young. This bird used to be rare.

The American cowbird has characteristics a lot like cuckoo; I forget what the native species is here, but the the species it victimizes has a nest built, and the cowbird lays it's egg in the same nest. The original bird doesn't just toss the wrong egg, it literally abandons the first nest and builds a new one on top, and again lays eggs, to which the cowbird adds another. This cycle can happen several times before the host bird gives up and ends up raising a cowbird young. I remember this from decades ago in a university course; some details are missing.

We've been having various finches a other small guys coming to visit our drinking pan. During this dry spell there have been more than usual.
As far as squirrels, I put out unsalted pistachios as I believe we should feed the local red tailed hawks.
We were out several weeks ago, checking out local canoe launch sites, and we heard a red bellied woodpecker drumming. Identified with the help of a smartphone app. We never actually saw it. That bird was loud as I heard it without my hearing aids.
The other day, Lady Hillary and I happened to see a pair of Baltimore Orioles for the first time in our neighborhood [central NJ].

We have several copies of Peterson's Eastern birds. They describe the range of the red belly as barely North of New Jersey. When I shared this with a friend in Maine, she said they are comman in her area [Freeport}. As I posited above, in the time since Peterson's was published,we may see this as an effect of climate change.

Congratulations on your first siting of this bird. Like a lot of birds, it is increasing its range.

A few days ago, the DH got a fine photograph of a flicker calling at the top of a tall, bare tree. We had been hearing it for at least a couple of years, suspected it was a woodpecker of some sort, but didn't know which one. Now we know.

Its cry is a raucous rattle that sounds like something out of an old jungle movie. So out of place in my neighborhood of songbirds.

Lady Hillary and I stopped of at the local Audubon center and chatted with a couple of staff. It seems they are resident throughout the Northeast, especially since Hurricane Sandy killed a lot of the trees. They are resident year 'round. I guess I just never noticed them before. Surprising, considering how loud the call is.

Yesterday, Lady Hillary and I were scouting launch points along the Passaic River in Chatham, NJ. We heard an unusual bird call and, using herself's SmartPhone, we were able to identify the call as a red bellied woodpecker. The environment was right, with a lot of dead trees but we were well North of its usual range.
We never did eyeball the bird but the call was loud and distinctive.
I was able to verify it on line.
Do you think this is simply a bird that got off course or a function of global warming?

With others regards the peanuts - waste of time even the starlings don't go for them.
Some years ago the people opposite had a mature leylandii in their front garden which was a roost for starlings and we loved to watch them murmuring as we relaxed after dinner.
Those neighbours moved away and the new occupants almost immediately got rid of the tree. We had a couple of evenings of bittersweet pleasure watching the confused flock (well over a 1000 of them) before they realised their digs had gone.
Have noticed recently a small murmuration about 400 yards away so will keep an eye on that.
Glory be - a hedgehog in the garden as I was locking up - by the time I got the camera out he/she had disappeared.
We used to get them regularly at one time as well as toads but they have been scarce of late, as have both slugs which we don't miss and snails which we enjoy.

I gave up on peanuts a long time ago as they ended up going mouldy, but fat balls and fat blocks are popular - the long-tailed tits really like the blocks and they're big enough for several to feed at once.
And there is a tray of mixed seeds and mealworms, which are popular with blackbirds, robins, dunnocks, blue and great tits – and the sparrows eat anything there, they're not too fussy.

Funny old weather at the moment - how unusual for England!!
Wednesday was murky and cold and wet but the pigeons were perched high in the trees looking thoroughly miserable. Why not move down we thought with some shelter?
Thursday we had the really strong winds and not a pigeon to be seen in the trees but still one or two pottering around the garden.
The blue tits have been showing a lot of interest to the nest box and Thursday we had a magpie grab a chip (big helping from new management from fish and chip shop) and make off with it. Was struggling and got as far as the greenhouse where it managed to drop it in the rain gutter but was then unable to retrieve it.

Have had a lesser spotted woodpecker in our garden on several occasions recently. We have the usual range of tits too, blue, coal, great and occasional long-tailed, robins, blackbirds, starlings and my husband saw a couple of goldcrests.
Closest encounters with cuckoos have been in the Western Isles: one on Islay sitting on a fence just arm’s length away, and another unseen but heard loud and clear and very insistent, from 6am on Barra. Other “keep you awake” birds are corncrakes, first experienced on Cape Clear island off Co. Cork, and later on South Uist.

There were loads of egrets on the Axe estuary (near Sidmouth) not in some bird books but I guess they've moved with global warming.

As I was well into the wilds I was as sure as I could be my 3 note cuckoo was not an imposter. If I'd known it was rare at the time I could have recorded it. Just a curiosity. Three separate notes, top and bottom about the usual tone apart and a middle one like our semitone. Not a repeat. Terrain presumably suits cuckoos and their prey nests as there was another the next year. Lockdown says I stay at home this year.

It's a Great White Egret (Ardea alba) Steve. Blooming enormous. Very long, elegant white neck,stands upright a bit like a stork.
Since I've been feeding the birds in our back garden, the inevitable seagulls have been descending to grab bits of bread which they try to swallow whole. But yesterday there was one among them which really stood out - a great black-backed gull (Larus marinus). He was the only one of his kind among the other common ones. We aren't all that near to the coast, but the gulls come inland to try and find food in the fields (worms etc)
The large crows still call out what sounds like "FOOD!!FOOD!" when I appear in the garden. Always makes me smile.

There are numerous rhymes about cuckoos along the lines of

"The cuckoo comes in April. She sings her song in May. In June she changes her tune. In July she prepares to fly. In August go she must."

That is to say, in June the cuckoo's call changes from cuckoo to cuck-cuckoo.

I was talking about the one you thought you saw flying by. They are strictly summer visitors and you won't see them before about mid-April. They usually vacate the country by early August. We were in Lecce in Puglia for a week in June 2016. We marvelled on the roof terrace of our hotel at the big flocks of screaming swifts which we imagined were mopping up the mozzies that might have been eating us instead.
