Around the yard

For my Green Day and  Camera Critters  and I'd-Rather-B-Birdin
I am taking a walk around my yard and sharing some  flowering plants and a few birds and critters.


A bluejay molting.


A cute chipmunk enjoying my birdseed.


One of my regular yardbirds is the White-Breasted Nuthatch.



The birds are not the only ones that like this feeder. My last post showed a Grosbeak inside feeder chowing down on the birdseed.

These impatiens have been blooming since last spring. They do look pretty next to our driveway.


To see more beautiful photos and cute critters please visit: Green Day  and Camera Critters and I'd-Rather-B-Birdin. Thanks to the gracious host Fiona of Green Day, Misty Dawn of Camera Critters and to Anni of I'd Rather-B-birdin.  Thanks for visiting my blog and post. I wish everyone a very safe and happy weekend.

  12. Those Nuthatches are cute to watch. Over here they are called by the Swedish name - "Nötväcka" which is pronounced ( nert - vecka )

    They almost defy gravity when you see them on trees and branches.

  18. Hello Eileen, What a great photo of a chipmunk....do you know I have never seen one. Oh and I love the bluejay, bless him, he looks like he needs a good wash and brush-up. What is a Gosbeak? is it a form of squirrel. Don't worry, your photos are lovely. Best Wishes Daphne

  26. Lots going on in your yard! The chipmunk is so cute. Pretty impatiens. Mine didn't do well after a great start. My gardener said there is something going on with impatiens here and he can't plant them next year, some kind of disease or something. I think the New Guinea impatiens are ok to plant though.

  37. Wonderful photos. I have noticed the birds here are beginning their molting process too. They look a bit odd while going through that, but still beautiful.
    I miss my chipmunks, the neighborhood stray cat nabbed both of them,
    Happy Sunday!

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
