Some Feathered and Furry Cutie Pies

Last week I featured one of my favorite woodpeckers, the Pileated Woodpecker. If you missed that post, click HERE. Today, I'll show you more of our little birds, plus a couple of pictures of some deer. All of these pictures were taken during Thanksgiving week (BEFORE the cold weather and snow visited us). Above is another of my favorite woodpeckers, the Northern Flicker. Below are more.

Here's a sweet picture of a male House Finch... I have alot of them at our feeders now --along with tons of Goldfinches.

Here's one of my all-time favorite birds, our sweet little Eastern Bluebird.

Here's a close-up picture of the Northern Flicker Woodpecker. He is helping himself to some goodies in the plate feeder. You can see more of this bird's gorgeous colors.

And--here's another picture of one of our Eastern Bluebirds. This is the female --and she is eating at the suet feeder. The male pictured above is eating what has been spilled on the deck!!!!

The deer are 'protected' in our area ---so we have alot of them around. They love to feed on the golf course fairway (and people's yards) late in the afternoon. We captured this picture of four of them along the fairway near our back yard.

Here is one more close-up of one of our gorgeous deer here in Fairfield Glade. They were out during Thanksgiving week ----probably looking for some turkey dinners!!!!

We live in such a beautiful area of Tennessee ---and are so fortunate to have the birds and deer around us... Hope you enjoyed seeing more of our little beauties.


This week, we (along with many other areas of the country) are experiencing some bitter cold temperatures and even some snow. Although, here in Fairfield Glade, we have only had a dusting of snow and mostly just flurries, we are still experiencing the very cold temps.

SO---to enjoy the season, I will conclude with a picture George took a night or two ago, of our beautiful Christmas tree and the blazing fire in the fireplace --which we are enjoying each and every day/night. Maybe this will help all of us to feel just a little warmer today!!!!
