Birds in the Trees

Bluebirds, a Red-shouldered Hawk, a few House Finches, and a brilliant red male Northern Cardinal all were perched on various tree branches when I snapped these pictures.  I took these pictures on different days in the last several weeks.  All of these birds have been year around residents here.  I am surprised that we still have such a variety of birds here in spite of our oh-so-cold weather this Winter.    By the way,  it snowed last night and again a bit this morning.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Got snow???? We have about an inch or two here…. First snow of any significance this season.. I took a few photos which I will share sometime.

    The birds are going crazy at the feeders today –since it was 10 degrees out there when I put out the bird food this morning. Poor babies.

    Great photos, Linda.

    • Hi Betsy, Yes, it snowed a bit last night and this AM but not too much. We still have a little on the ground here. Interesting to see blowing and a little falling snow in sunshine. It is about 26 degrees out now at 1:00 PM here. I agree about the feeder. Have a super nice day and stay warm. It may snow again tomorrow.

  2. What a great capture of the hawk!!

  3. I could pick out a bluebird from far away, great shot! And the Hawk is awesome too. we had a dusting of snow this morning! It is mostly gone now. Have a happy weekend!

  4. The bluebird looks very perky despite the cold!

    • Hi Montucky, I think it was just that really rich sunlight streaming at that tree. I was kinda surprised at the vivid color it turned out to have. Have a great weekend!
