Any ideas what that might be? It's in my yard, a few delicate looking plants. I weeded around them, because they're lovely. But if they're really Weedus horribilus, then I'll pull them.
Earlier today, I saw a Bluejay sitting on the railing, beak a bit open, scrunched down, wing half open.
And a bit later, I saw this little Downy Woodpecker doing basically the same thing. (The photo quality is lousy because it's taken at behind a double-paned glass.)
Then it started preening vigorously, and spread a bit again. My best guess is that it's a post-bath warming/preening in a spot where they can see a lot around? (But the deck bit wasn't wet or even damp after, and the bird water I have out wasn't splashed around.
ps. Welcome back, Blogger!
