Default Olive sided flycatcher.

I have only seen this bird once and it happened to land on the deck and let me take a few pictures.

Great catch! I've never seen one before. Have you posted any pictures of your backyard? It always seems you have an abundant variety of birds… Is it your gardening that attracts them. or are they there in the area anyway?

I have set up the sun deck for feeding the birds. I don't like to show them at feeders etc. so I add branches and mossy twigs for them to use. I have had 23 species in a single day. Hope you can see some of the stuff in the photo and also the water dishes. Also a shot with three pileated woodpeckers on the deck.

If I didn't know of your photos and your history of great shots here at WG, I'd think that the shot with the three pileated woodpeckers was photo shopped. Fantastic! Incredible! It must be quite the experience to see that outside your window! I'd love to see more of your deck and surrounding yard setup. FOr instance, how thickly populated is the area you live in, and what are the ages of the trees in the area?

Your pictures make me want to visit British Columbia!

Tank you for your note. Here are a couple more pics. The first is taken from my office window, although I don't photograph much from that side of the house. Another with a pileated feeding a young one and an eagle shot, yes, taken from the kitchen window.

Looks like a mature forest in the distance in that first shot. I have to admit - I'm jealous!!! It must be great to have such wildlife around you like that!!! Keep those pictures coming, so I can live vicariously though them!!!

Here is a photo of a table right up against the window, under the eaves so it keeps dry. The other is a very small pond, about 2 ft x 2 ft at the bottom of the steps leading down to the garden with crossbills.
