It's A Feeding Frenzy

My back yard is a hot spot,
for our feathered friends, that is.
 
I am not sure I have ever had so many birds at the feeders.
 
But talk about "dine & dash",
it's the usual suspects but no one wants to pose for pictures.
I don't think I have taken one good picture today!
 
On Sunday, the hubs cleaned my "feeder window".
He washed and filled the feeders
and cleaned and filled the bird bath.
 
You can exit here if you like, or stay and view,
the not so good pictures, I have taken today!
 
This gorgeous Male Cardinal was just outside the window,
no cropping was necessary.
Note to self, be sure and trim those tree branches.
 
This picture is not too bad...
This Titmouse is bigger then the ones I usually see,
and his tail was extra long!
 
I only see these White-Throated Sparrows
during the fall and winter.

Of couse the Blue Jays were hogs! 
 
This little Song Sparrow was willing to pose
but the camera just could not figure out what to focus on.

Of course the squirrels got in on all the action,

 everyone has to eat, right??

  14. Enjoyed the bird shots, Debbie. Our feeders are located quite a distance from the kitchen window and close-ups are not easy to get, if at all, so these were great shots in spite of your disclaimer. The blue jays are feeder hogs here as well. Thankfully, I have not seen any many squirrels at the feeder

  17. Those are wonderful photos, Debbie! I would be happy if I could get anything half as good. My feeders are a little too far so closeups and about all I get are sparrows anyway.

  18. I think your birdies and the squirrel are fantastic! I'm really afraid we won't see many birds this winter because of all the cats we've accumulated.
