We get a lot of chickadees, nuthatches, and house finches, etc. Here are some pictures of others:
A pair of cardinals
A Downy woodpecker
A brief glimpse and bad photo of a very shy Red-bellied woodpecker
A very cute and quite spunky Pine Siskin (this was the one day we had snow.)
A Brown Thrasher
The Blue Jays are shy as well and don't like their picture taken
A Carolina Wren
It took them a while to find us, but the Gold Finches are here now.
And then on Wednesday, while I was laboring away ripping off those borders, I happened to glance out the window and could hardly believe my eyes! For the first time ever at our feeder was this:
A male bluebird!!!!
He brought along his friend:
The female bluebird
I knew there were bluebirds around, but I wasn't sure if they were in our neighborhood. They sort of like open country and can be a bit picky about where they go. I was so excited to see them! They came back the next day, too, so maybe they are nesting in the area and will be regular visitors.
It's no wonder that I bought this book. I doubt I'll make the quilt, but you never know!
Do you feed/watch the birds? What visits your feeders?
Have a great weekend!
