~Feathers on Friday

~There have been a few House Finches hanging around this past week.

A handsome male in his breeding plumage.

His partner, not as colorful, but still pretty!

A male House Finch in black and white. I was justing playing around with this one.

~A Red-breasted Nuthatch

These little guys don’t stay still very long.

~The Black-capped Chick-a-dee

Also, hard to capture for me anyway, because they don’t stay still for long.

~There have been three Osprey flying around the house. Their nest is about a half-mile away.

~My favorite pair of Robins are building a nest in our yard.

The male taking a rest.

Happy Birding! Stay safe.


~More Birds and a lot of snow!

~The same birds have been hanging out at our feeders – the Northern Flicker, Scrub-Jay, American Robin and a Junco are pictured below. These photos were taken Saturday. What a difference a couple of days make!

There have been three Flickers at the suet feeders every day.  For the last three years, a pair of Robins build a nest in the yard; I think this will be year four from the behavior I have seen. I have been putting out mealworms to help them keep up their energy. As you can see in the photo below the male Robin is looking a little scraggly.

I also have White-crowned sparrows, Red-breasted nuthatches, Black-capped Chick-a-dees, Towhees, Red-winged Blackbirds and Osprey (fly-over). I hope to capture photos of these, but they don’t cooperate! 😦 

For the last two days, we have received at least 9 inches of snow with temperatures in the teens.

Stay safe!
