Great photos, Denise, and a nice variety of visitors! I love the junco, and the female cardinal has such interesting coloration! Check out my post today of the visitors I've had, if you get a chance!

They are simply lovely. I feel so sorry for the female Cardinal and females of many species if it comes to that, denied their chance to shine in bright plumage.
Thank you so much for these photos. Big smiles.

Hi Denise, wonderful backyard visitors. You see just about the same birds that I see in my yard. They all look so cute, great captures.

Not one of those over here, Denise, so thanks for showing your visitors. Needless to say I'm a tad jealous...grins.

Very cute. I see a lot of the Juncos around here lately.

They are so cute, your visitors. The photos are super. The depth of field is perfect. I'm not the best at bird photography.

Hi Denise...I love Junco's they are so cute to bad they have gotten the label foul weather birds!!
Your back yard visitors are lovely ..I wish we had more Cardinals...but there are always a pair around but they are timid!!

Denise, very nice visitors. We have much the same variety here on the VA eastern shore. I have to refill our feeders after our return home from post holiday travels. I decided to let them go empty after seeing that a hawk had attacked and carried off a male cardinal right before we left.

It's quite the little bird fest at your place!

Great shots of your visitors. I love nuthatches and titmouse in particular and find them hard to shoot because they move so fast.
