Yard Bird Gallery

Eastern Phoebe

Eastern Bluebirds, an Eastern Phoebe, a White-breasted Nuthatch, many Canada Geese, and a few Mourning Doves were here in the yards Wednesday afternoon when I went out with the camera to snap a few pictures.  We also had a bunch of House Finches and a lone Eastern Blue Jay but I did not get pictures of those birds.  Oh yes, we also had a flock of Common Crows that flew off before I could capture them on digital camera snap-shots.

The season is definitely changing and the weather has been cooler and wetter in recent days.  We also have had a bit of morning fog.  Pretty soon, the migratory ducks and songbirds will be arriving but now is a rather quiet time as far as wildlife watching here.  I took these pictures on October 3, 2012 , and Oct. 4, 2012, in my yard.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

    still jealous of your nuthatches, but i’ve been enjoying our families of bluebirds and phoebes, too. 🙂

    • Hi Theresa, Glad you also are enjoying many of the same birdies I do here. By the way, I had a little male Downy Woodpecker come to the bird feeder this morning. First time that has happened at this home. Pix tomorrow. Have a super nice day today.

    You are still getting a nice collection of birds. With migration, we’re at a lull right now. But this will pass and hopefully, we will see a lot of activity again.

  3. What a pleasant setting that is for the geese!
