The birds seem to like your backyard! I saw my first rose-breasted grosbeak this year earlier this week. I saw a Baltimore Oriole too.

ladyfi said...

WHat a great backyard you have. These shots are delightful!

Marie said...

When can I move in? LOL! What a wonderful, magical bird paradise you have created. It's like a luxury resort for our feathered friends. No wonder you have so many visitors - they must think they are in heaven.

I loved the pretty line of goldfinches, standing like puffy, gold blossoms on a branch. Thank you so much for sharing your garden with us.

Phil said...

You have a great garden just full of bird variety Eileen. All those Blue Jays must take some feeding.

I love your back yard, but I want to hang out there, too, so pretty soon you'll have a back yard full of bloggers, with no room for the birds!
Beautiful post, Eileen.

Hi Eileen, Gorgeous pictures! I think that the Red-breasted Nuthatch is prettier than its White-breasted cousin. Have a fantastic day!

Amila Kanchana said...

Wow that's quite a handful of birds,beautiful!

Valerie said...

I love that shot of the group of Blue Jays. We had some nesting near us a year or so ago - and boy were they noisy in the morning!! Isn't it wonderful to have such a gorgeous variety of these beautiful little critters. Your Weeping Cherry Tree is beautiful as well! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Those are gorgeous photos Eileen. Have a blessed Sunday!

Denise said...

You sure do have a lot of beautiful shots of birds in your backyard Eileen. I thought the goldfinch shot was great, because I so rarely see them and am in a little bit of envy here :)

Wow busy (and beautiful) yard!... you lucky girl :) Love that weeping cherry tree.

Elaine said...

I love the contrast of the goldfinches in the weeping cheery tree. Your backyard is the perfect backdrop for all the wonderful variety of birds you have.

SquirrelQueen said...

Your backyard seems to be a very popular gathering spot for the local birds. They are all so cute but I love your first photo of the goldfinches in the weeping cherry tree.

NatureFootstep said...

you have a most wonderful backyard Eileen. :)

Porch Days said...

Fantastic to see so many goldfinches together. They have not arrived here. The cardinal is teasing us by flying past and not stopping. We do have lots of woodpeckers and I hear them in the woods.

Calling Ravens said...

Oh I loved these! And all in your backyard!! You know that nuthatch is going to be my fav, though-lol!!!
Your tree is gorgeous too.
Hope you have a great week!
