A strange looking creature visited one of our bird feeders the other day. Can you identify this bird?
We were enjoying time in our backyard when Hu-Dad heard rustling in the bushes near some bird feeders. Hoping to capture a photo of one our avian friends, he aimed his camera and caught this unique looking creature attempting to extract some seed. Hu-Dad thinks it’s a Landoness Boom-Boomness, but he isn’t positive. Can you identify this bird?
As a bonus, here a couple of more images Hu-Dad caught before he suggested the bird find other food, perhaps in his bowl.

Requiem for a Rabbit
May 21, 2023
A poor bunny made a bad decision, so I wanted to pay my respects with a requiem for a rabbit. My dogs plotted their own event.

Missed A Rabbit By A Hare
In a fumble of Sibe Quentin security, Typhoon almost caught another rabbit, though Hu-Dad has kidded him that he missed it by a hare.
That is hilarious!
Our german shepherds wait for crumbs to drop on the ground as I change out the suet feeders on the grass. Anything for some good ole fat. Those are awesome pics-good catch Hu-dad.
What a wonderful shot of such a cute bird. Be cautious in encouraging the species to stay around though. I have read that they shed their feathers quite a bit and they can accumulate heavily in areas where they hang around.
Hu-Dad-Landoness Boom Boomness is a GREAT name for that type of bird-lol I DO wonder though what the heck would seeds taste like??? I guess we will never know what he was thinking?
It is knows as a “Fluffy Butt Warbler” in upstate NY. The variety with a “Redhead” will steal sunflower seeds also. Very rare!!
A rare bird sighting indeed !! And it woos🤪
Such an adorable “bird”! We will make homemade suet from bacon grease and we have to save those for winter so that they don’t melt and drip on the ground where our local variety of “birds” will lick it from the ground!
