Birds in the Yard

An Eastern Bluebird

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!

  1. i like the crow on those fence planks. i’ve not seen any nuthatches here this year. nice to see yours!

  2. What a good variety of birds! So you didn’t feed them this summer and fall? Neither did we, we are getting ready to put the feeder out this week. All the starlings came in big flocks and would eat the food in one day!

  3. Great birdie pictures, Linda… My favorite of course is the sweet little Bluebird.. We have about 4 Bluebirds which come to the feeders regularly… I haven’t taken any bird pictures in a long time… One of these days I’ll do that…

    Great ‘snow’ on your blog!!!!! That may be all we get this winter… ha

    Hugs,

  4. You have a very nice variety of birds there. We are down to just a few species now for the winter. I especially love them though for their hardiness and loyalty!

  5. You do see a nice variety there, it is much the same here in my yard. The Bluebirds and the woodies are my favorite. Love your photos. Have a great day!

  6. Impressed by the wide variety of birds you have in your yard! While we have crows in our area, I never see them on our property. Not sure why that is.
