Here are a few photographs of various birds that have visited my yard. I have had the Red-bellied Woodpecker here fairly often. I think that there are three of these woodpeckers that live in the trees next door to my little farm. I also had a visit from the tiny Downy Woodpecker. American Robins were here a few times and loved finding tasty worms in the large grassy lawns. The Eastern Bluebirds here are wonderful. I am hoping to see more but I usually only have two or three here. We sometimes have a group of four or five Crows here feeding on lawn insects. They crack me up when they stop and sit on the fence. I also enjoy seeing the little White-breasted Nuthatches with their acrobatic grace.
I am going to be setting up my bird feeders in the next few days as soon as it stops raining. Yes, we once again are having dreary windy wet days here in beautiful Cumberland County, TN. With the rain comes beautiful woods pastures and all the wildlife so it is a good trade-off for a bit of wet inconvenience. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photograph. Enjoy!
