Gorgeous parrots. But what does it remind one of? Hint;

They're pining for the fjords!

This little fella (a darling Saw-Whet Owl) is in rehabilitation, and after receiving treatment was released back into the wild.

Red-winged Blackbird

Unless youare prepared to raise and keep/eat them, do not buy chicks.  These are usually roosters used for to make a quick buck at Easter and the although the dye is harmless, these newborn babies are plunged into it, cold and wet, so we can do something stupid.  If you are serious about raising chickens, these certainly would not be the ones to start with or the ones you want to end upstuck with.

Sorry got behind here. I will see if I can identify the bird using my field guide Sentient. Beautiful bird pictures Tony and Sentient. Thanks so much for the video Ruth.

Sentient Biped, your bird feeder pics remind me of my favorite short video, Birdbeat. I can watch it over and over.

Joan, you are right!  It's a male downy woodpecker!  Between you and google, I can figure it out.  The link even says they hang out with chicadees, which they were doing at my feeder.  And lots of finches.

Now the other one...  I have no idea!
