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.

  5. 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,

  15. 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

  26. 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.

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

  30. 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)

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
Have a great day, Eileen
