Wild Bird Wednesday

Well, sure isn't Wednesday any more..but, I'm here ..

So were all the birds we usually see about this time of year.  In the space of 20 minutes...I took 84 photos... not all of them good enough to use... so there was a lot of deleting.  Normal for bird photos ... Dave will attest to that.  He has a blog totally devoted to bird butts... I'm serious..check it out. He has the cutest photos.

We had nuthatches, black capped chickadees, sparrows, Northern Flickers, Downy woodpeckers, ... Even a robin came to see what they were all up to, but robins don't do bird feeders so he just had a bath instead in the birdie bath and carried on his merry way, looking for Mayday berries.

Wonderful photos! I really wish our windows weren't permanently screened because I'd love to see if I could capture some of our feathered visitors. All I ever manage to get is a blur because of the screening.

Nice birdie shots... You have a great assortment. Most of what I have now are various kinds of finches.. Noisy little buggers. Have a great weekend.

Lovely set of photos. I agree it is so easy to take many photos, but it takes much longer to sort them out!!! Have a great weekend, Diane

Lovely photos of the birds. Your robins look so much bigger than ours. Ours is quiet tiny and they come to our feeders all the time. Actually there are a couple that hang around there all year round😀.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I can actually comment on yours because of the comment set up you selected. Not the case with many of the blogs I read.

Wow! That was quite a few birds to see in only 30 minutes. I don't know the names of the birds that live around in our yard but I am learning from watching others on Stewart's blog.
Thanks for sharing!
