A Carolina Chickadee was spotted on a branch of a Crepe Myrtle shrub in my yard the other day. The tiny buff, brown, and black songbird was probably dining on the Crepe Myrtle berries or possibly snacking upon Magnolia seeds. I also saw the little bird flit over to the downspout of my rain gutter for a quick drink of the collected droplets of rain or dew still on the metal.

I am thrilled to be seeing small songbirds in our trees here on my street once again! Really! It was a long dry spell, likely due to the patrolling hawks. Yesterday I went out late in the morning and saw a Carolina Chickadee, a Tufted Titmouse, and two male Northern Cardinals.
I have been hearing a Red-headed Woodpecker calling, but so far, I have not seen it (nor any mockingbirds). Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
Pine Warblers, Palm Warblers, Carolina Chickadees, Carolina Wrens, Yellow-throated Vireos, and Yellow-rumped Warblers have recently arrived in the area! Here are some photographs I took of the small cuties in the past several weeks. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
Here are a few pictures that I have taken of birds and critters in the last couple of weeks. The green insect is a Leaf Hopper and is about 3″ long. That insect was on my living room window yesterday morning. Please click on the thumbnail image and as ever, enjoy!
Tufted Titmice, a lone Carolina Chickadee, a solitary male Northern Cardinal, and a mystery bird, likely a Palm Warbler but maybe it is a Blue-headed Vireo, were all spotted in the last week here near my home in Marion County, Florida.
That Northern Cardinal was sitting on the top of what I used to refer to as “The Woodpecker Colony” in a seldom used cattle pasture near one of the entrance gates to this housing development. The Titmice are residents of the yards here at my house and the Chickadee is a frequent visitor. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
This tiny Carolina Chickadee is such a cute bird! I took several pictures of this little chickadee yesterday afternoon at about 4:00PM. The bird was feasting on a variety of bird seed at my next-door neighbor’s bird feeder. I was really glad to see this bird. I rarely see chickadees here. The Carolina Chickadees eat seeds, small insects, nuts and fruits. They really love the Black Sunflower Seeds, which seem to be an almost universally beloved seed for seed-eating small birds.
