Backyard Birds

Lately I have been enjoying some FOY which is first of the year birds in my yard. The Purples Finches and the White Throated Sparrows are two birds I usually see more in the winter months.

Great closeups of your birds. We recently started feeding wild birds and hummers and love them so much. ♥olive

Eileen, I just want to hug those cute little birds! We used to have a sweet olive hedge where a lot of tiny (what I believe to be) sparrows lived, and our neighbor's cat saw to it that they wouldn't be happy there. But when they used to sit in it all the time, after a rain, they would all chirp and sing!

Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Great photos! We love seeing all the birds at this time of year! You never know if you might see something different because of migration in the Fall! ♥

Linda said...

You always find the cutest birds! I see one with a worm in its mouth.

Happy birding!

great close ups, Eileen! my finches are changing into their winter garb as well.
I do not have a very powerful lens or zoom, so can not get these kind of close ups. my turkey vultures were snapped by DH with his camera that has an asst. of lens & features, I need simple ;) so I try through my dirty windows, that are cloudy from leaks between the panes... but I do get to enjoy the "live" action.
~hugs, Faythe @GMT, thanks 4 sharing

Nice backyard birds and photos, Eileen. Reminds me winter is coming and the birds need to get fed to build up good reserves for the cold days.

Happy WW from another backyard bird lover.

Please have a good Thursday.

Kim @ Not Your Typical Southern Belle said...

What beautiful little visitors you have! I have birds here, but not that much of a variety :)

Corner Gardener Sue said...

I enjoyed your birdie post. I think my favorite bird or photo is the last one. (I think it was the bird I was attracted to because of the red in it, but maybe it was the photo that captured it so well.) ;o)

Reader Wil said...

Hi eileen! You are a great birdwatcher! And what's more a good photographer

NatureFootstep said...

the white throated sparrow is neat! Is it common where you live? I don´t think I´ve seen photos of it before.
