Blue Jays, Chickadees, Robins, Warblers, Mockingbirds, Wrens, and Woodpeckers all were seen flitting, stalking, perching, feeding, and pecking in my neighborhood gardens trees and lawns yesterday, Jan. 26, 2014. It was a banner day for bird watching here.
I think I spotted twelve different types of birds! What fun! Here are some of the pictures I took. I hope you enjoy seeing them. Some of these birds are migrant visitors here for the Winter. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!

My bird feeder has a commercial mix of Millet, Cracked Corn, and Black Oil Sunflower Seeds in it. It has been up for about a month and is a huge hit with the local songbirds. Here are a few photographs I have recently taken of birds at this feeder. Please excuse the quality of several pictures. I had to take the photographs through my living room window through glass, screen, and the porch railings. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
