|My favorite 'migrating' bird which visits us every Spring and late Fall; This is a gorgeous ROSE BREASTED GROSBEAK.|
Since I've had more time the past couple of months, I have REALLY enjoyed sitting and watching all of our Backyard Birds eating me out of house and home!!!!! ha..... Those little critters really love to eat (just like I do)..... BUT--they are just so much fun to watch.... I often sit on the swing watching and taking pictures, and while watching, I wonder what they say to each other --and to ME!!!!!!
After having wood damage to our home (partly caused by the birds pecking on it), we finally decided that we did NOT need to keep the Bird Feeders on the deck anymore.... SO--after many years of enjoying the birds on the deck, we moved the feeders to the backyard.... It's harder to get good pictures ---but when I'm sitting on the swing, it's GREAT!!!!!!
Today I'll share some of my Cutie Pies for you.. All of these pictures were taken between April 19 and May 2, 2020.... Hope you enjoy the pictures!
|I love watching the BLUE JAYS snatch the peanuts in the plate feeder. The beautiful CARDINAL waits his turn!!!!!|
|Our fat MOURNING DOVES love to 'hog' the plate --so the little CATBIRD decided to go after the suet on another feeder!!!!! (NOTE: Have you ever heard a Catbird's Call???? He sounds just like big kitty cat!!!!!)|
|I love this picture!!!! Mrs. CARDINAL is wondering why Mr. PILEATED WOODPECKER is SO BIG..... ha ha...(See Daddy CARDINAL perched on top????)|
|GOLDFINCHES anyone????? We have LOTS of them around here.... They have their own feeder (Nyjer)--but they still love the Plate Feeder!|
|Another good picture of the male ROSE BREASTED GROSBEAK (Haven't seen the female yet)|
|A NORTHERN FLICKER WOODPECKER; I laughed at this one since he couldn't quite learn how to jump on the new Suet feeder yet... (This was the first day I had the new suet feeder up.)|
|One more picture of my newest Bird, a SUMMER TANAGER. Isn't he adorable?|
|Beautiful MALE CARDINAL (Wipe your mouth, Messy One!!!)|
Have a great week and stay HEALTHY and SAFE.
