Sweet Songbirds

Northern Cardinals, Carolina Chickadees, Carolina Wrens, and Tufted Titmice have been here in the last couple of days.  My neighbor has a bird feeder up and that is a big draw now for these songbirds.  There also has been newly seen squirrel interest in that feeder but that is another story.

These little birds are enjoying Millet and Sunflower Seeds from the bird feeders as well as a variety of naturally growing Fall berries and seeds here.  The Northern Cardinals, Chickadees,and Carolina Wrens also eat small insects and are having a great time finding caterpillars and other goodies around in this neighborhood.  I took these pictures on Oct. 4, 2014 and again on Oct. 5, 2014.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. love the little wren on the roof. no mistaking that look. 🙂

    • Hi Theresa, That Carolina Wren was snagging seeds from the ground that had spilled under the feeder next door. It quickly flew up to the patio roof of the home two doors away. You are right about that look. Have a wonderful Tuesday tomorrow!

  2. Ahhhhh—my favorite little birds. I still love the Cardinals the most –although I do love them all. Love hearing the Cardinals ‘chip’ when they come to the feeders. Such a wonderful sound!!!!


    • Hi Betsy, We may have several pairs of Northern Cardinals on this street. I saw two males yesterday. You are right about the sound the make when feeding. Have a great day tomorrow and thanks for your comments!

  3. Wonderful collection of songbirds. They are some of my favorites.. Great captures.. Have a happy week!

  4. I would enjoy seeing those four any day! I did get a rare (for here) chance to watch a Blue Jay eat some sunflower seeds today.
