The Carolina Chickadee Visits

dsc_0506

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.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

Titmice in the Trees

Here are some of the cute little Tufted Titmice that have decided to make their homes in trees along me street.  Each Titmouse seems so charming that I really love to hear them as well as see them.  They are bright, frisky, wonderful little birds!  I spotted these cuties last month here near my home.

The topknot on that grey head and body seems so formal for such a lively bird.  I often spot Carolina (or their cousins, the Black-Capped) Chickadees nearby when the Titmice arrive.  By the way, I will be offline next week.   I do hope to be back here with more pictures in a week or two as soon as we get our new Internet connection accomplished.  Enjoy!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture.  Enjoy!

A Downy Woodpecker, a female Northern Cardinal, a Black and White Warbler,  and a Pine Warbler are all sweet and small songbirds.  All of these sweeties were spotted on Monday, February 17, 2013 in my yards and along the street close to my house.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.

By the way, I saw my first Cotton-tailed Rabbit of the new year late Monday afternoon in my front yard.  It scampered off before I could go and grab the camera.  Perhaps I’ll get some bunny pictures in the near future.  Hope so!
