Finally, I am starting to see our migratory songbirds here! Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of these photos I took on Monday, Nov. 12, 2018. Enjoy!
I am beginning to see more songbirds and other birds around my yards. This weekend, saw a couple of Tufted Titmice way up in my big old Live Oaks, a hen Northern Cardinal in my next door neighbor’s Palm Tree, a Northern Mockingbird up on the neighbor’s roof, and what looks like a juvenile Bald Eagle flying very high up in the sky.
I also saw a sassy Red-bellied Woodpecker that played a short peek-a-boo game with me before it gave up and flew off. I will show that bird on Wednesday’s post. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger version of the image. Enjoy!
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!
I think having two, and perhaps three, hawks now patrolling the trees here on my street, has a lot to do with my not having seen many songbirds here lately. I saw these two hawks (Likely Red-shouldered Hawks) yesterday in two adjacent trees across the street from my home.
I did see a few Palm Warblers, a Yellow-rumped Warbler, and a cute Tufted Titmouse around the yard here on Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2015.
I also am including a picture of a male Red-winged Blackbird that I spotted at a small marsh up across the road from the horse ranch pond where I often go to do bird watching. I saw that Blackbird on Feb. 18, 2015. I do not see Blackbirds here in my yard. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
I took this series of photographs of the Tufted Titmouse taking its bath yesterday, February 11, 2013 from my front porch. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
