Saturday’s Birds

6 Feb

I quit putting birdseed out for a few days until I figured out how Vixen and Sam and Wanda would handle being in the yard. They don’t seem to come up front very much or pay attention to the feeders, so I filled them again.

It didn’t take the birds long to figure it out.

If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt, there’s still time to join in.  The items are at the top of my sidebar.

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

    Nice pictures, I like the last one best. I hope your snow is melting, except if I heard right your getting more. What a winter for you all.

      Thanks. I think the latest is rain turning to snow on Monday. I’m not sure we’re supposed to get a lot though.

    We don’t have those birdies here – what are they?

    • Teresa February 6, 2016 at 7:11 pm #

      In order they are cardinal, downy woodpecker, downy woodpecker, junco, nuthatch, and the last is a nuthatch with the sparrow at the top.

    Hello, pretty collection of birds. I love the nuthatches! Enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

      I was surprised to catch them sharing a sunflower seed.

    A familiar crew here too.
    Next Friday’s Hunt list?

      Next Friday’s list is in the post, and I’ll update my sidebar today. I figured it would be confusing to update it too soon since people can still link up through today. They are: starts with G, week’s favorite, and in my kitchen.

        No pressure. Sorry I missed it in the post. ‘hurry sickness’ ;/ I enjoy the hunt and wanted to get a leg up on the third item. Thanks again.

    I do like your photos. Always fun to see the birds at the feeders.

    What a great group making a comeback to your feeders, Teresa!…:)JP

      I had been still putting out sunflower seeds and suet, and it didn’t take long for the news of the bird seed’s reappearance to be known.

    I really enjoy your bird pictures! Is the nuthatch the red breasted type? According to our bird book, that’s what it looks like. My husband saw one in the forest and made a note of it in his book.

    • Teresa February 7, 2016 at 6:39 pm #

      I have absolutely no idea. I’m more of a “Oh, look. Pretty bird.” kind of birder.

    A wonderful assortment of garden visiters. I love the Downy Woodpecker, and the two Nuthatch, the one with the juvie being fed.

    • Teresa February 8, 2016 at 1:54 pm #

      I never thought about it being and adult and juvenile. I found it fascinating to see them sharing though. Thanks!
