  4. I like the pouty looking female Cardinal and the dark-eyed Junco looks cute and round. The piggy squirrel enjoys her peanuts. Happy Saturday to you too!

  5. I admire the squirrels for their cunning and persistence. After seeing your birds I am tempted to put up a feeder again. Need to outsmart muscular Muscovy Ducks which are able to clean it out in minutes. A local ordinance prohibits feeding the ducks as they are such a nuisance.

  17. Hi Eileen
    Excellent capture of the female cardinal. The woodpeckers like to sit and ponder what's in a feeder, don't they? Great photos.

  29. Good call on the female cardinal, Eileen. She does indeed look "pouty".

    We had no electric for 2 days (including Christmas day!!) What a mess---big wind storm blew through. Still had a very nice day, but so so so glad to have the power back on.
    Happy New Year to you, dear lady. I hope you have many happy days of birding in the new year.

  30. Great shots again Eileen... and goodness - it's the 26th December!

    All the best Jan

  31. the junco makes me want to hold him in the palms of my hands.. gently. the squirrel makes me smile

  32. Wonderful Pictures Eileen, especially of the squirrel getting the LAST morsel!!!
    I'm very nervous with all the warm weather we're having here in the Atlanta area. It looks like your photos - still winter - but buds are starting to pop out and with another week of this warmth - we won't have a spring since everything will be frozen back here soon!!

  33. Your pretty female cardinal reminded me of the time I found a fake one in a florist shop. I was admiring it and the owner told me "you don't see females very often." I was stunned. Had no idea that a female wasn't solid red too! I bought the sweet little bird and still have her somewhere in my boxes of Christmas things!

  34. I like the cardinal photo. And the pic of the squirrel into the bird feeder made me laugh. I enjoy watching the backyard gymnastics of our squirrels as they try to get food out of our bird feeders.

  37. Is it really Saturday? I've been very confused this week. Love the piggy squirrel! They are so much fun to watch. I'll have to check my blog posts and see if I have a critter for you. Happy new year to you as well. I'm sure I will be saying that more this week. Enjoy your weekend. A little winding down.

  38. "Pouty" is a great descriptor for that cardinal - she looks as though she scolding someone. ;-)

  39. Ha, ha! I love the piggy squirrel! Wishing you a new year of continued artistic expression and plenty of joy.

  49. Great series of captures Eileen. I wonder what it is that causes our hearts to melt at the sight of a squirrel/chipmunk holding food to its mouth?! (perhaps for us in the southern hemisphere it is a rare sight) Whatever the cause, thank you for sharing your part of our world and its critters. Wishing you and yours a safe, healthy and peaceful 2016.
