A few of my backyard visitors.

Here are a few birds taken over the last week.
Above a Carolina Wren.

The bright colors of a male Cardinal. It's our State Bird. Below is the female Cardinal.

A Blue Jay taken as he flew off a branch before he opened his wings.
Tufted Titmouse
Dark-Eyed Junco.....
and a blurry one caught as he flew off his branch.

Black-Capped Chickadee
Lastly I have had a single crow check out my back deck for a couple of weeks now.

He isn't a regular visitor but as he popped in last week I decided to share him. He arrived before the last snow and I am wondering if he will be bringing his friends next time.

  6. Aren't they fun to watch. I only have sparrows, finches, two mourning doves and now and then a scrub bluejay. I'm watching the sparrows and finches fly back and forth to the feeder right now.

  7. I adore crows! I have rehabbed a few;they are the most incredibly intelligent birds. They use 'tools' to get food!

  12. What beautiful birds. I can hardly wait for Spring. We don't get many birds here in Miramichi in the winter time. We do, however, have the perenial sea gulls and pigeons!!!!

  14. Very nice photos. I love to watch the male and female cardinals, But lately the old starlings have been taking over. Today I put safflower seeds out, was told starlings and squirrels don't like them. We'll see tomorrow when the starlings come back in full swing. They are so dirty. Have a great Sunday.

  17. Oh, how I love these pictures! I have a Carolina wren at my feeders, too! He was even checking out the wren house I have strategically placed nearby. Fingers crossed for babies come Spring!! Thanks so much for sharing these, can't tell you how much I enjoyed them!

  19. Enjoyed your pictures. We're avid bird watchers so it's nice to see you have so many varieties when birds are in rapid decline.

  22. Hi Denise; lovely to see all the different birds visiting your garden.
    It must be quite some "traffic" out there. I also perused your previous posts; lots of snow and no electricity, but you still got your cup of tea! Imagination is the mother of invention! It happens here too when we have storms, cyclonic winds, the electricity goes, then it is back to candles. We also have very powerful led light torches; I think on could boil a cup of tea on these!
    I wish you a very nice week. T.
