Camera Critters

I often enjoy the birds that land in the tree out back.  Soon it won't be as easy to take their pictures as the leaves will totally cover the branches as the weather gets warmer, and I will just hear their sweet songs instead of seeing them this clearly.  Of course they come down to dine at the feeders but I do enjoy them when they hop between the branches in clear sight. 


This is the Tufted Titmouse.  Right now there is a pair that visit regularly.  I managed to get photos of only one.











Thank you Misty for hosting Camera Critters.

Tufted tit... I am really jealous now. I get the long tailed tits but have only seen one tufted and that was when I was abroad. It's not fair...lol.

Great photos. I like to watch them too but there were two yesterday making the most awful racket under my patio. They were ticked off because I was out there so I chased them off to make their nest some where else.

That's such a pretty little bird. I know what you mean about the bare trees - so much easier to see the birds;-)

Wow! You managed to capture quite a few shots of this little guy. He's one of my favorites to watch at this time of the year as well.
