Sweet Songbirds

Northern Cardinals, House Finches, a Carolina Chickadee, a few Mourning Doves and a Tufted Titmouse were all spotted here on my street in the last few days in addition to the small flock of Downy Woodpeckers.  I took all of these pictures last week.  The birds are enjoying several nice bird feeders as well as the abundant insects in the shrubbery and Oaks.

We have been having nearly daily rain also so there is plenty of water, as well as food for the birds.  Pretty soon, we will also be seeing many more migrating birds.  I can’t wait!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Hello, I am looking forward to seeing the migrating birds too. Your finches, cardinal and Chickadee are sweet. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

  2. It’s always wonderful to see those small birds. Now, with the coming of fall and winter, I wonder how many will remain here and how many will go elsewhere until the next spring.

  3. Hi, You know how much I love my little Songbirds…. I have all of those at my feeders year ’round —and they are SPECIAL. Right now, the Mourning Doves amuse me since they seem to stay here on the deck ALL of the time… I think they think they own the Bird Kitchen!!!!!! ha ha

    We still have lots of Blue Jays —and they enjoy the peanuts I put out for them…

    Have a great week…I published a blog post today.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

    • Hi Betsy, Glad you reminded me about peanuts and Blue Jays! Thanks. Hope your day is a nice one tomorrow. Enjoy the golf course and any deer you may spot. I know you are gearing up for Fall in your beautiful yard.

  4. lots of family activity here, too. 🙂
