More backyard birds

We see these Stellar jays around the neighborhood from time to time. This guy made quite a few pit stops at the (decaying) birdfeeder today, between storms.
This is not the best photo, but this little bird is a fast one. We think it is a mountain chickadee. Again, anyone with more bird knowledge, please let me know if I've got the names wrong.

I am very impressed with your bird photos! Birds are not easy to capture on camera.

I hope the storm we got on Friday didn't/doesn't hit you too hard. It was a doozy here (for us soft Californians).

Again, about the birds. I just love them. We had loads of pheasant in Alaska who lived on our property. We fed them cracked corn. They loved it. But they REALLY loved to eat the rosehips off the bushes. They would come up on our deck and one nearly walked in the door one time. Great photos.

That's a awesome blue color that bird is sporting.

Thanks for posting the great photos.
