Birds for the Weekend

28 Feb

We’ve got snow flurries again.  This isn’t supposed to amount to much, but we’re still pretty cold.

Downy 50aw

I’ve been making sure to keep the feeders full.

Nuthatch 39aw

Some birds are really good about posing in exchange for all the food.

Dove 048ew

Others prefer to hide behind the branches of the cherry bush.

Cardinal 61aw

I just can’t seem to take a decent picture through the thick glass of my kitchen window.

Woodpecker 17aw

I’m also missing my new camera.  It’s being cleaned, but should be home any day.

Sharing with Bird d’Pot and SOOC Sunday (all but the dove are SOOC)

      It works with some of them. Darn cardinal won’t stay close by though.

      My sweet little downy woodpeckers are always posing. The nuthatches are pretty good too.

    The birds here are very hungry looking. You do have a nice variety at your feeders.

    • Teresa March 1, 2015 at 10:35 am #

      There’s lots for them to eat around here. I do try to help out when it’s cold and the ground is covered in snow.

    I too captured a cardinal thru my window. I saw “my” downy woodpecker only a few times this winter. I’ve added cracked corn to one of the feeders; the birds empty it in one day!

    • Teresa March 1, 2015 at 11:19 am #

      They do eat a lot!

    Wait, what is your new camera? I’m having to shoot through windows, too 🙂

      These were taken with my old Nikon D3100. My new one is a D7100. My biggest problem is the old glass in my house. It distorts horribly.

    Beautiful birds!

    • Teresa March 1, 2015 at 1:24 pm #

      They are! Love watching them.

    Lovely birds at your feeders.

  13. Lea March 1, 2015 at 6:19 pm #

    Love the birds!

    You’ve shown all my favorite birds! Beautiful!

    • Teresa March 1, 2015 at 9:40 pm #

      Glad to hear that! These are my regular feathered friends at the feeders.

    Beautiful birds! I really love the Downies! I’m glad they’re so friendly. Silly cardinals need to take lessons from them on how to be friendly!

    • Teresa March 2, 2015 at 2:49 pm #

      That’s for sure! I love the downies too. 🙂
