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!!!!
