Smaller birds have been visiting in my neighborhood recently.  I tok these photographs on Oct. 8, 2013 and again on Oct. 9, 2013.  We are likely seeing the first waves of migrating birds from up North.

I was happy to see a Carolina Chickadee, a Carolina Wren, Eastern Blue Jay, Northern Mockingbird, Red-bellied Woodpecker (one of a pair), and a bright Palm Warbler.  I also have seen a pair of Eastern Bluebirds, and many Tufted Titmice, Common Crows around.  These are all welcomed birds which I happily enjoyed!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Hi all, Sorry about the slightly weird layout today. When I use captions, the way the body of the text appears changes a bit. Also, there may now be an advertisement placement (hopefully a nice one but I do not have any say on that), so that also affects how this page looks. Wildlifewatcher

  2. They are all beautiful birds and would be welcomed here too. I love the Palm Warbler.
    Have a happy day and week ahead!

  3. i don’t have the warbler, but i love all of the others you mentioned and enjoy them immensely. 🙂

    • Hi Theresa, So glad. I do know that the sassy Northern Mockingbird is a common visitor to N.E. TX. Have a great day tomorrow and thanks for your always nice comments – I so appreciate them!

  4. The blue jays are very busy in my yard … lots of squawking squabbles … they are storing seeds for the winter, they stay here to entertain me.

    • Hi Bearyweather, Our Blue Jays stay way up in the tree crowns. I think also that the Jays are afraid of the numerous (and large) Crows here. The Crows run off any offenders. Glad you enjoy your Jays! Although our climate is warm, the animals and birds do still store food. Have a great day tomorrow!

  5. That’s a nice assortment of birds. I would suppose that many or most of them will be with you there all winter. We are still seeing migrators but also some of those that winter here are now in residence, especially chickadees. they are very welcome.

  6. Looks like you’ve got some great birds coming through.
