Songbird & Egret Gallery

DSC_8222 - Version 2



Here are photographs I took this last week, of a variety of songbirds.  I so enjoy seeing new birds here!  The new arrivals this past week were:  A Chipping Sparrow; a Pine Warbler; and a pair of American Robins.  It was very cold for two days last week.  Some of the birds are seen here really puffed up so that they could stay warm.  It was only 31 degrees F. when I took the pictures of the American Robin, and the little Eastern PeWee!  Brrr.

The Eastern Blue Jay was a welcomed sight.  I seldom spot Blue Jays around here.  There at least two male Northern Cardinals here and a male Downy Woodpecker also in the area.  In fact, I saw three different kinds of woodpeckers here in the yards last week.  Additionally, there was a flyby of a flock of Cattle Egrets right over my home.  I took these pictures in my yards and around the street.  I am happy to say that the weather was much warmer this past weekend here.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. the peewee is so cute! looks so much like our phoebes. love the robins, too.

    • Hi Theresa, Yes, PeWees do look very similar to the Eastern Phoebe’s. Like a mini version almost. We depend on the fly catching birds to help reduce Mosquito populations (No-see-um’s, too!). Have a great day today!

  2. What a nice variety. The Phoebe is cute and I love the flight shot. Great birds and photos. Enjoy your week ahead!

    • Hi Eileen, So, the consensus of my really knowledgeable blog friends is that that PeWee is really a Phoebe. OK, Phoebe, it is! Thanks! Have a great Tuesday tomorrow!

  3. Very diverse collection! It would be nice to have so many species in the area at once!
