Header Competition Season 3 # 17 - "Garden Birds"

The theme this week by Dave is "Garden Birds". Mac, Gail's ManDave,Kathy and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT and voting begins after that. 

 This is a post I enjoy. Since I feed the birds in my yard I have a lot of varied visitors. Here are some of my bird visitors through the year. Lets look at the blackbirds that visit.


Cowbird
Red Wing Blackbird
Woodpeckers - Downy 
Red Bellied
Flicker
The State bird -Cardinal
Blue Jay
So what I chose is the Bluebird.
See what the others show at the above links.

Of course, your photos of birds are outstanding. Love 'em!!!

I really your bluebird header. We have the same birds visiting our feeders except for the Red Winged Blackbird. All of your pictures are wonderful.

Very Nice and I have the same ones but they don't pose for me :-) they only eat...

I mix peanut butter and oatmeal (fruit flavors and reg) together and the birds inhale it as fast as I put it out.

I'm glad I'm not doing the header challenge, I would feel like a dismal failure this week, everyone's birds are so wonderful! I love your little bluebird in the header and all the rest of your visitors!

But really I do miss doing the challenge. I am glad I can still pop on to the blogging neighborhood every once in a while and see what you guys are up to.
