HERE) , I promised that I would show you some of the funny bird pictures I have taken through the years... SO---today you get those pictures... Hope you enjoy them as much as I have....
Can you figure out what bird that is above???????? It's a ROBIN----a baby one!!!! The hair on top which looks like bushy eyebrows makes him look like an OLD MAN..... ha ha
Birds are so much fun to watch... This week, I sat on the back deck, watching Mr. and Mrs. Bluebird going in and out of the nestbox... They have a little growing family in there... Isn't that just special????
One More Thing: I've been on Blogger since 2009... As of this week, I now have 500
Followers... Amazing, isn't it??? How many Bloggers do you know who
have this many followers without doing memes, or giveaways, or tags or
awards????? (That is the way that most people get more followers, which is fine --but I just don't choose to do that.) THANKS to all of you for coming to my crazy 'waterfall/flowers/birds/travel/hiking' blog!!! Have a fabulous weekend and I'll see you on Monday!
Hugs and THANKS again for stopping by!!!

Today, I'll show you some pictures (taken at various times over the past 3 years or so) of eight of my favorite Backyard Birds... Above is an all-time favorite bird of mine, the EASTERN BLUEBIRD... Mr. and Mrs. Bluebird are busy nesting in the Bluebird House... I hope we have some baby Blues soon. Be sure to click on the pictures for larger views.
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my Backyard Birds today!!!!! I have SO much fun --feeding them and watching them... Soon, I'll do another bird post showing you some of the 'funny' bird pictures I have taken...
We have been out-of-town for the past 3 days... SO---again, I'm behind on blogging... I love traveling and we have a wonderful time ---but it's hard to catch back up when we get home!!!! I'll catch up with you SOON.
Have a great weekend and I'll see you on Monday.

Yesterday I showed you some of my Backyard Birds... Today, I'm only showing two different birds--but these are my fav's... Hope you enjoy the pictures of the Pileated Woodpecker (who comes to the suet feeder OFTEN recently) and the Eastern Bluebirds (who also are coming everyday, now that it is so cold). I love both of these birds ---and can't get enough pictures of them!!!! Hope you enjoy them too.
The Blues come to the deck and feeders in groups. The front center is the male, and the rest are females.
Mr. Blue wanted to show off his pretty blue feathers!!!
The female says: "Hey Lady... Don't leave me out. Wanna see...
...my pretty feathers also???? I'm just as pretty as the Mister, don't you think?"
"Oh My... please don't show this one... I haven't been to the groomer yet today!"
"Peek-a-boo! Do you think she sees me???"
"Okay.... I've searched ALL around. I think the coast is clear... Here I go!"
"Hmmmm... This looks pretty yummy, don't you think?"
"I wish that lady would make this feeder just a 'tad' bigger for me!! BUT--I can still dig in!"
"Heaven... I'm in heaven.... This is just TOO GOOD... Yummmmmmy."
Hope you enjoyed seeing my birdies these past two days.
"They" say that we'll get some snow on Thursday. WELL---"THEY" have said this many times before and "THEY" have been wrong. We shall see what happens tomorrow!!!!

Yesterday afternoon, as I sat on my throne (the sofa) doing some blogging (of course), I was also watching the birds come and go from the feeders on the deck. I didn't get a picture---but we've had several new baby Cardinals on the deck recently---waiting for Daddy or Mama to feed them. They are so precious, while sitting there shaking and tingling (like a little bell) begging for food.
BUT---the best visitors to the feeders were three different varieties of our gorgeous woodpeckers. I want to share some pictures I took yesterday. Above is always one of my favorites , our Red-headed Woodpecker (Woody Woodpecker). Below are several more.
Here's another view of a Red-headed Woodpecker on one side of the suet feeder and a Red-bellied Woodpecker on the OTHER side... See him????
The Red-bellied Woodpeckers LOVE the suet feeders. AND---they also love to CHIRP loudly up in the trees off and on all day long!
This cute little Red-bellied was telling me that he liked the suet in the feeder!!!!
This cute little guy is one of our Downy Woodpeckers. Isn't he pretty? They are smaller than both the Red-bellied and the Red-headed ones.
I love this shot of the little Downy... He looks like he is really concentrating, doesn't he????
These last three pictures were not taken yesterday. But I wanted to show you the other two woodpeckers we have in our yard. This guy is a Northern Flicker--and they do not come to feeders. But we have alot of them around ---and see them often. Aren't they pretty birds?
I love this picture of the Northern Flicker. He looks like he is getting ready to sing a song!!!! ha
And ---here's one of my all-time favorite woodpeckers, the Pileated Woodpecker. This is the largest of our woodpeckers ---and when they are around, you can really hear them! They have come to the feeders ---but only on occasion. I love these woodpeckers though.
Hope you enjoyed my day with Woody and the others!!!

Yesterday, the birds in my yard really entertained me... I sat on my throne (sofa) doing what I usually do (answering blog comments--ha) on my new laptop (named Polly).. The birds must have known that I was watching them because they were in and out of the feeder area all afternoon. I finally got the camera and took some pictures to share.
However, some of the busiest ones were moving so fast that I couldn't get a picture of them. SO--I'll at least tell you the different birds that did come to my feeders yesterday: Tufted Titmice, Carolina Chickadees, White-breasted Nuthatch, House Finches, Carolina Wrens, Goldfinches, Brown Thrashers, Northern Cardinals, Eastern Bluebirds, Mourning Doves, Bluejays, Hummingbirds, and Woodpeckers (Red-bellied, Red-headed, and Downy). Here are some pictures that I did manage to get, starting with a beautiful male Goldfinch above. More are below!!!!
This little female Cardinal sorta looks sad, doesn't she????? Such a gorgeous bird. This may be a juvenile---because I'm not sure when they develop their red beaks. Anyone know????
This is a juvenile Red-bellied Woodpecker (above). Now you can see the red belly!!!!!
Above is one of my fav's, one of our Brown Thrashers. This one obviously is a young one since he's smaller than some.
This Red-bellied above is really enjoying the suet. So many of my backyard birds LOVE the suet feeders. That's why I have two of them!!!
This beautiful Goldfinch loved to pose for the camera. He sat there for along time --and almost smiled at me.
The cute little Carolina Wren above was moving---but I finally got his picture (even if it is a tad blurry). Carolina Wrens sing loudly and their songs are beautiful. He loves to serenade me!!!!
This little guy is a Juvenile Red-bellied Woodpecker. He doesn't have much color on his head yet.
This cutie is a Downy Woodpecker. He was a small one --but I'm not sure he was an adult or a juvenile. Whatever, he is a beautiful little bird.
Here is a great picture of an adult male Red-bellied Woodpecker. These birds let everyone know when they come to the feeders. They chatter and chatter ---just like the Bluejays do. I only saw one Red-headed Woodpecker today--and couldn't get his picture.
I love this picture above of a Downy Woodpecker. Their black and white colors are so pretty I think.
Hope you had as nice a Saturday as I had. Our weather is like AUTUMN---and I love every minute of it. Hope it won't get hot again--but I need to remember that it's still AUGUST... ha
Have a great day.
