Summer Backyard Birds

Trips and vacations are nice,  but it's also nice to get home to see all of the precious little backyard birds which are eagerly awaiting me to get home and fill their feeders!!!!  Here are some recent photos of some of my little sweeties.  Above is one of our MANY Hummingbirds this year... For the past couple of years,  we hadn't seen very many here,  but we have a big group of them this year...

Another cute picture of a 'hummer';  They are such busy little guys!!!

And here's one more 'hummer' picture for you. 

Two precious Carolina Wrens trying to get to the suet feeder....  (I think the outside one pushed his way in and got there first!!!! ha)

Here's a beautiful male Northern Cardinal... He's had a busy summer being 'Daddy'...  AND--he looks a little weary, don't you think?  Look at the back of his head.  He's beginning to molt.

Here's a cute little female House Finch... She was one of the biggest Finches I have seen.

A favorite woodpecker of mine,  the Northern Flicker;  Such a gorgeous bird!

And finally,  I just cannot do a bird post without adding one of these gorgeous birds,  the Pileated Woodpecker.  They are such a joy to watch!!!!

Have you noticed that I've had to start water-marking my photos?  Both George and I have had trouble with someone stealing our photos and using them as their own.  Hopefully,  the watermark will help!!!!!   GOSH---why can't people just be honest?

Have a great Tuesday.
