Lots of kidding going on.  Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to post about it tomorrow.

    Teresa, what are the red, black, and white birds? Love the feeder style!!

      that’s a male rose-breasted grosbeak. 🙂

        Thank you, TWG!! Don’t believe we have them in Ohio, as I have never seen them before! 😉 Beautiful!

      I had to ask TexWisGirl where she got her feeder like that because of all the awesome squirrel pictures she takes. Sadly, the squirrels have never tried mine out.

        But the birds have!! 😉

      • Teresa June 4, 2013 at 9:07 pm #

        Yes! They love it.

    the rose-breasted grosbeak is really handsome. 🙂

    • Teresa June 4, 2013 at 8:37 pm #

      It’s the first one I’ve been able to photograph, and he was so intent on the seeds that he didn’t care at all!

    Very pretty birds and such a nice variety!

    • Teresa June 4, 2013 at 8:37 pm #

      Thanks. it hasn’t taken long for this variety to find my new feeders.

    Beautiful birds and how lovely to have them right outside your window.

    • Teresa June 4, 2013 at 8:38 pm #

      It is really distracting. I find myself watching them instead of doing anything else. 🙂

    These are incredible!

    These are amazing. I think I need to hang something like this near the house so I can get something like this


    • Teresa June 5, 2013 at 5:38 am #

      It is great to watch them. I still have moisture between the two panes that makes it difficult, but it’s still pretty good.

    Wonderful shots of these beautiful birds.

  8. Beth June 5, 2013 at 6:16 am #

    awesome close-ups … gorgeous colors. ( :

    • Teresa June 5, 2013 at 9:33 am #

      I love having the feeders right outside my window. Now I just need to get a window that isn’t full of moisture.

  9. Pat June 5, 2013 at 8:33 am #

    What a beautiful Rose-breasted Grosbeak. I’ve seen only one here.

    • Teresa June 5, 2013 at 9:35 am #

      This guy was loving his seeds. I think I could have opened the window and petted him. 🙂

  10. Veralynne Malone June 5, 2013 at 9:27 am #

    Again, you have made my day. Those are great pictures. I love the one of the Grosbeak looking right at you as if saying, go away and stop photographing me! I would love to see full pics of your bird feeding area. those feeders are awesome. Good luck with your kidding!! Can’t wait to see the pics.

    • Teresa June 5, 2013 at 9:35 am #

      That is is the whole feeding area. 🙂 I do have a couple of feeders up front (that are empty right now) and there’s always the dog food bowl. They love their dog food. (Just remembered you can’t see the whole area. There’s the one feeder with sunflower seeds, a sock feeder with thistle feed and two hummingbird feeders.)

    You have such a wonderful variety of birds! And I love that feeder! Looks very squirrel proof too. Wherever did you find it?

    • Teresa June 5, 2013 at 11:43 am #

      I got this feeder because I loved TexWisGirl’s squirrel photos with it. My squirrels must not be as acrobatic because I’ve not had one in there. I got it at Wal-Mart.

  12. Dave June 5, 2013 at 11:23 am #

    a very smart set of birds in your garden, well done.

  13. MaryBeth June 5, 2013 at 11:39 am #

    Excellent bird shots. Really nice. Love the little Goldfinch–such a flashy guy. MB

    • Teresa June 5, 2013 at 11:43 am #

      Thanks, I really am enjoying all the finches.

  14. Jennifer June 5, 2013 at 2:41 pm #

    Love the red breasted finch!

    • Teresa June 5, 2013 at 2:47 pm #

      Thanks. I do like their splash of color at the feeders.

      Thank you. 🙂

      • magnoliamoonpie June 5, 2013 at 5:27 pm #

        love the one where the bird is looking right into the camera

      • Teresa June 5, 2013 at 5:41 pm #

        It’s kind of interesting to see which birds are shy and which ones just look right back at you. 🙂

    Wonderful photos! I love the ones of the cardinals!

    • Teresa June 6, 2013 at 12:45 pm #

      Thanks. The lady cardinals have been so elusive.
