Feathered Friends

We have our usual suspects at the farm that we feed: dogs, sheep, horse, chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, guineas, cats and cattle.  Then we have the free loaders.  They seem to know when we feed the animals. As soon as we go out with the grain and bread, they arrive.

Two black birds...anyone can tell me what type?

 They are the bullies and chase everyone off.

Ah, we get a bunch of these. They flutter about.

Is this the female of the above?

I wasn't quick enough so this one turned around to let me know that I was slow.

My Boldness...he was dancing about to get his grain.

He got it and stuffed his cheeks full.

and...more....and  more...

But they all left when Cleo arrived.

Cleo is my favorite! Love those fluffy kitties. And, she's named after that pyschic that used to advertise on TV which I think is great :)

The black bird looks like a Brewers blackbird to me.

The ones with the dark head are Oregon juncos (although around here people seem to call them dark-eyed juncos.)

That's right...Junco....I just couldn't remember....and I never heard of Brewer's Balckbard so I just got educated!

Thanks for the identification!
