Bird Photographs

DSC_6546

These bird pictures I had taken earlier this Fall are making their debut.  I spotted this handsome male Eastern Bluebird in the backyard on a neighbor’s roof; a  cinnamon-brown Carolina Wren was hunting in my front yard shrubbery;  a Red-bellied Woodpecker was busy drilling in the bark up in the Oak in my back yard; and the striking-looking Lesser Yellow Legs, was seen hunting for aquatic insects at the nearly dry rainfall retention pond near the golf course.

I so enjoy seeing all of these birds here!  Many are here for a few hours and then on to other places.  The season is again changing and I am now seeing more Winter migratory songbirds.  It has been rainy here the last few days so bird watching has been limited.  I am hopeful that I’ll be seeing great new birds soon!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Love the reflections in the yellow leg picture … they look like interesting birds to watch.

  2. love them all. that yellowlegs shot is GREAT!

  3. Ahhh—love your birdie photos. Our little Carolina Wrens sing to us outside our window early each morning. It’s wonderful to wake up to a bird singing…

    Storms here yesterday–but we are all fine.
    Hugs,

    • Hi Betsy, So happy all is well in Fairfield Glade! We still have property there so we do think of it when we hear of bad weather. Yes, the Carolina Wrens flit all around the house in the early morning. Have a wonderful day!

  4. Cute collection of birds. The bluebird is a favorite of mine, but I love them all. Have a great evening and week ahead!

    • Hi Eileen, The birds I hear but can’t get pictures of, are the pair of Barred Owls that inhabit neighborhood trees. I often hear them conversing. Lots of very close by hooting going on. Have a super day tomorrow!

  5. You are fortunate to have so many species of birds around you. Here we are down to our winter few, but they are each more cherished because of it.

    • Hi Montucky, Although you are in the mountains and have a true Winter climate, you are fortunate to have songbirds around. We are seeing many more here in the last couple of weeks. Also saw a flock of cranes (I think they were Sand Hill but not sure) over the house here a few days ago. Have a super good Tues. tomorrow!
