Winter yardbirds for my Project feedercount

My Skywatch Friday now follows my Winter birds post


Chickadees and Titmouse for Bird Photography Weekly #68 to see more go to Bird Photography Weekly

Please click on the photo for a larger viewing.

These birds are regular visitors to my feeders and backyard and a few are my winter birds. The Dark Eyed Junco and the White Throated Sparrow I only see in the winter months. Last weekend was my first count for the Project feederwatch . In about an hours time I had seen Mourning Doves, White Throated Sparrows, Bluejays, Cardinals, Tufted Titmouse,  Dark Eyed Junco, Carolina Chickadees, Redbellied Woodpecker, American Crows, American Goldfinches, House Sparrow , a Pileated Woodpecker and one unknown hawk.


The Carolina Chickadees are one of my favorites, I love when they start fussing.


The Tufted Titmouse are here year round and can also sound fussy.



To see more cute birds and other animals got and visit THE ARK

Thanks for visiting my blog.

The birds look lovely all puffed up to keep warm. You are so clever knowing all the names and I haven't heard of them here but that doesn't mean much as I don't a lot about birds I just like watching them. I do have some bird biiks to look up their names if i can find them. Nice shots.

You have a good assortment of birds at your feeders. I mainly see only chickadees and redpolls at the feeders in the winter. Beautiful photos!

Glad to know the weather of winter has not driven the birds away, otherwise there must be something missing without their sound.

Janie said...

Great photos of the birds. You see a great variety there.
Love your header.

Amazing photos... thank you for posting the tufted titmouse, I've been trying to identify that bird that's been outside!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for your comment - no it was not a HDR-photo.

Eileen: Wonderful photos of your birds. The Juncos have moved back to Ohio also.

√ Abraham Lincoln said...

We had fewer birds in this part of Ohio than ever before. Several birders have asked me about that as they had less birds and less of a variety than ever before. I think it is due to a climate change and that it is a touch warmer here where we live than before so the birds are able to go a little farther north and find their ideal climates for nesting. Anyway, we didn't have many birds this year. We do have both Coopers Hawks and Sharp Shinned Hawks coming here looking for something to eat and finding less and less as most of what we had have migrated south.

I do have or had the same birds that you are showing in the post. Nice photography.

None of them I've seen yet.
I love that project of yours :)

Terrific photos of your local birds! I'd be pretty fired up if a Pileaed Woodpecker showed up in my yard.I can find them within our town but not in my backyard.Hope you enjoy the count.

mick said...

Great photos of those little birds and its very good that you have such a variety of birds coming to the feeder.

Neil said...

Great photos of cute little birds.

Larry said...

Nice shots of the Titmouse and Chickadees Eileen! I am doing the Project FeederWatch too, although I haven't been around enough to count the last couple of weekends :-(

The first week of the count I did get a Nutall's Woodpecker at the feeder. I would really enjoy seeing a Pileated but I'm too low in elevation to get them here.

Oh Eileen, such wonderful photos. You have captured these tiny birds so well. MB

Kamana said...
