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??

Your photos are beautiful! Every single one!! I miss the birds from home. Not many down here. Or if there are birds - I'm INSIDE and don't see them!

You've got some great birds there. I'm still trying to figure out all of the sparrows.

the squirrel takes the cake. what a cutie!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

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

Farm Girl said...

I think they are just great pictures. Every single one of them.

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.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

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.

Saun said...

Wow that's whats going on in my backyard too. I spent 2 hours in my backyard Sunday just snapping away. Love your shots.

Bonnie K said...

I want to just sit at your window and drink hot cider while we chat and watch the birds.

Karen said...

Nothing wrong with these photos, they are all wonderful. They are all just so cute and colorful aren't they!

Beth said...

I think the photos are beautiful, even the squirrel is so cute.

Gillian Olson said...

You catch some great feeder action, the squirrel and the jay always seem to be around when there are handouts.

Tess @ Pro-tography 101 said...
