Some of My Local Birds

I had a day when the snow stopped and saw 8 different bird types. Here are five of them.

These are the Starlings. They truly are neat birds making a lot of noise.
Here is a House Sparrow sitting on the table I have on end..
This is a pair of Cardinals the red male and brownish red female under an overhang.
Here is a Black Capped Chickadee that was taking off to fly.
This is a Dark Eyed Junco. This is the second one I saw this year.
The other birds I saw were a Grackle, a Blue Jay and an American Robin.

It's amazing that we share a lot of the same birds and live so far apart!!

Shellmo said...

It looked like your starlings were having a meeting in that photo - loved it!

Shionge said...

It looks as if that three little birdies are having a conference ;)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Tom, I never tire of seeing great pictures of the birds. I'm featuring a Cardinal tomorrow also...

Thanks,
Betsy

You got quite a few visitors on your sunny day. Hopefully you'll have more (sunny days and birds) in the days ahead.

I'm impressed be your knowledge of birds!

When I see the little birdies outside in the winter, I feel so sorry for them - their little feet are so small, they have to be cold!!! Poor things!

Great sequence, Fishing Guy!
Those three birds in the first picture seem to gossip! Beautiful!

Mary said...

I like the way you frame the birds :-) Lovely little portraits of each.

Some of the birds are here as well. But the cardinal is unknown here I think at least I have never seen one. Beautiful photos!

Ok, now you've gone and done it - you've made me homesick for all the birds I had around my feeders when I lived up north! I'd almost forgotten that dark eyed juncos even existed.

*sigh*

I'm a huge fan of the humble huge fan of the humble house sparrow. Could almost be my garden, well if I had that beautiful cardinal which I am still so envious of.

Don said...

We are seeing the occasional starling here in Michigan now. They are funny, but they are also gluttonous when it comes to our suet feeders.

And they take a bath with more vigor and flurry than any other bird I can think of!

Jo Castillo said...

Hi the sparrow and background are very artistic! Nice photos. Hope all is well there and the snow leaves.

Tabib said...

Beautiful birds!

I wish I was more successful in finding birds to shoot, I mean photograph. :-)

I love the song of the robins. Great shots Tom.

Tina said...

Warren Baker said...

I just love those Cardinals FG!!

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Love the bird photos. We usually have a ton of dark-eyed juncos, and I haven't seen as many this year either.

Janet, said...

Love the bird photos, but I'm not crazy about starlings, they invade our feeders. I think juncos are so cute. I got pictures of robins this morning.
