Volunteer

Feeding songbirds has the side effect of birds dropping seed throughout our yard, which results in volunteer sunflowers popping up. We generally let them pop up and thrive or not. This volunteer adds cheer to the middle part of the vegetable garden.

Visitor

ETA: Now the photo is posted.

I rummaged through photos and came across this one from July. I put out suet cakes for a week or two and this female Downy Woodpecker (link goes to allaboutbirds.org) regularly visited. She also visited the hummingbird feeder, right background, and I think was able to extract some nectar.

I resumed filling the seed feeders late last week and expect to see more visitors soon.
