The Header Picture was taken in October of 2016 and shows the CHIMNEYS area (all decorated for Autumn) of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee. This was BEFORE the horrible WILDFIRES which began here in November and destroyed SO much.

My Sweet Little Birdies!!

I have put so much emphasis recently on my Woodpeckers and Bluebirds ---so today,  I'll show you some recent pictures of more of our little Backyard Birds.  Above is one of the little Dark-Eyed Juncos... We don't see these little guys during the hot summer --but they do come around during Winter. Below are more!





White-Breasted Nuthatch  (They love the peanuts I put out!!)





This beauty is one of our male American Cardinals.  (This one is for my Aussie friend, Colin, who really loves the Cardinals!)





This 'cutie' is a Carolina Chickadee.   I love these little guys --and they are just so sweet.





Our little Goldfinches are getting their beautiful spring yellow colors back,  just in time for mating season.





Another favorite year-round bird is the Tufted Titmouse...  Love these little guys also!!!





Finally,  here's a funny one for you!!!!  I laugh for some reason when I look at this picture... I think that male ROBIN is saying: "What are you laughing about, Lady?  Do you think I look FAT?"   ha ha ha

I have never had a couple of Robins (one male and one female) before, who come to the deck OFTEN (all during the day) and eat the suet --or whatever they can find on the deck.   Robins are usually ground-eaters ---so this is kinda strange to have them at the feeders so often... Hope they bring their babies --once they have some.

All of the birds pictured today are with us all year (except the Junco)...  I just don't know what I'd do without my Backyard Birds... Hope you enjoyed the pictures today.  AND I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  Did you see that huge Super Moon????? Wow!!!!

Hugs,
