The birds were out in droves over the last couple of days…. The woodpecker in the above picture on the left has become a permanent fixture in our front yard. Hubby and I have enjoyed sitting out on the front porch and watching to see who will come by next. We have had the following visitors…
We had some friends over today and had a nice lunch. The dogs were happy to get a bit of left over steak and the chickens enjoyed some of the left over veggies. We had some rain over the night and the rose-bush seemed to enjoy the left over water drops.
Just saw the red-headed woodpecker in your other blog. Wanted to comment but it said Error 409 Page not found. But anyway, I saw the photo when the notice came into my email. I wanted to say how really interesting it is to me, to be able to see the kinds of birds you have in your area. Very different from ours. Thanks for sharing those photos.
Your welcome. I will re post that photo tomorrow.. It didn’t seem to be working so I took it down. Sorry about that. I am so glad you are enjoying the photos. I am learning slowly to take photos of the birds, they move so fast. Like I said I will put that photo back tomorrow so you can take a look. 🙂
Great. Hope the Internet co-operates better tomorrow.
I am up and hopefully running better today we will see. I am going to attempt to post that photo 🙂
My grandfather used to have bird feeders and suet holders in his yard on Cape Cod, and on rainy days, or lazy days, we would sit in the front window and look out at all the different birds that came, I learned to love birds then, and still do. Awesome.
Thank you for the great comment. When my Gandmother comes to visit she loves to watch our birds. My husband and I enjoy bird watching he birds it is so relaxing and fun to see who stops by. Thanks again for the comment 🙂
Mary POPins!! Beautiful pictures!
You go it Mary Poppins 🙂 You get the gold star today 🙂
Beautiful, just beautiful!
Thank you very much for the kind comment… I am so glad you enjoyed them 🙂
I love bird feeders, my father has a dozen or so around the yard, different ones and food for all kinds of birds that stop by. I especially enjoy watching smaller birds hop around, they are more curious than the larger birds and will usually hop closer for photos if I am patient enough.
I am a small bird fan myself. I love the little yellow finches 🙂
I love the photo of the cardinal. We have some lovely birds here but often it’s difficult to get a photo thanks to my ‘not so great camera’!
I am glad you enjoyed the cardinal, they are my Grandmother’s favorite 🙂 I am glad I barrowed my mom’s husbands camera as it does do better with the qick shots.
it’s lovely to see the different birds that you get over there. We also get a woodpecker on our bird food, but they are quick and difficult to photograph
I know what you mean about them being so quick. It was hard to get a good shot. It’s neat to “share birds” on our blog.
Just for your info. The black and white woodpecker looks like a female Downey, the brown bird next to her is a mystery. The hanging feeder has house finches and the bird at the bottom picture is a redwing blackbird. We get all those birds in Wisconsin too.
Cool thanks for letting me know 🙂 I knew about the finches and the red wing black bird, but i am glad to know the rest. Thanks again 🙂
