More from around the yard

I am linking up with Camera Critters and I'd-rather-b-birdin

Happy Easter to everyone!! I hope you have a happy day!

These are more birds from around the yard, I see lots of activity at my feeders and some birds have been checking out my birdhouses.


The Carolina Wren is a cute bird and can also be one of the loudest birds around my yard. Who would think that one of the smallest birds can also be the loudest.


This Pine Siskin has been acting like a baby, holding it's wings open and it's mouth open and begging for food from other birds. I watched it the other day begging for food from a Nuthatch. Is it confused? It seems like my biggest group of Pine Siskins have moved on but I am still seeing a few stragglers.


I love these cute Red-Breasted Nuthatches, I am see at least two of the Red-Breasted Nuthatches in my yard.  I believe the other is a female has more of a whitish belly. I also see my year round White-Breasted Nuthatches.


Yesterday, I watched both the Carolina Chickadee and the Tufted Titmouse going back and forth to this tree. There is a hole there, I am not sure if they have a stash of seed there?



Maybe they are stealing the squirrels stash of food? Above the Chickadee is going down into the hole.


The Tufted Titmouse is looking a little guilty looking, like I caught her in the act. Maybe they are taking seed out that belongs to another bird?


The shot above, I watched the Titmouse going into the hole.


And yesterday, I checked on the GB Heron nest. He/She looks to be standing guard.

 Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the birds from around my yard. It is fun watching the birds and their behavior.

  2. Excellent shots here! The wren is so sweet and the focus superb. I read in my birding app that titmice nest in a hole in a tree, so maybe that's what's going on. Wonderful behavior you captured!

  20. The Titmouse and the Chickadee definitely look as if they are up to something. I really like that photo sequence. We have several Carolina wrens around our house. I love to hear them singing.

  21. Great birdie photos, Eileen. I have the hardest time getting those sweet little Chickadees in a photo. They are quicker than I am... ha

    Happy Easter to you and yours.

    Hugs,

  23. Love your wren shot! Activity here has slowed a bit with warmer temps, but I'll be feeding a bit longer hoping to see some migrating species.

  30. Marvelous photos of the different birds. Beautiful ! I wish you a sunny and happy Easter !

  31. Dziupla jest spiżarnią, tylko czyją ? Dobrze jest chyba zaopatrzona, że zaglądają do niej ptaki. Sporo ślicznych ptaków masz blisko siebie. Radosnych Świąt Wielkanocnych !
    Pantry is hollow, but whose? Well stocked is probably that they look to the birds. A lot of birds have pretty close to each other. Happy Easter!

  32. You have lots of activity around your feeders for sure Eileen. I think you are right about those little fellas stealing the stash of other birds and where food is involved birds don't seem to have any scruples. Enjoyed your pictures today - keep em coming and have a Happy Easter.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Definitely a lot of activity in your yard. Cool shots!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Nice photos! You have some fun backyard visitors.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Your feeders are busy places. Maybe the Pine Siskin is a little spoiled and wants to see if he can find someone else to baby him. The Carolina Wren is so cute.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wonderful bird shots! I miss having a yard full of birds.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love your pictures so much! They are so inspiring for me..I want to recreate all of the beautiful birdies in fabric and stitch! We have a dear little Wren that visits our garden, they move so fast though I dont think I'd be able to get a picture like yours! Very lovely indeed! and I'd love to know what those birds are up to! x

  38. Awesome yard bids!! If your having a party, you have the perfect guests ;)))))

  39. Happy Easter to you too! The Carolina Wren looks awesome, and I envy you with that Great Blue Heron nest.

  40. two of my favourites today. The vren and the titmouse. Both so sweet looking. Great shots Eileen.
    I thought they were nesting not stealing food. .)

  41. Hi Eileen, a great post to enjoy with my cup of coffee this morning. Love all your photos, you have a nice variety of birds that come to your feeders, and how great to be close to a heron's nest. Hope your Easter Sunday was a great one.

    ReplyDelete
  42. You are so great taking pictures of birds!!!

    And you are lucky to have a yard and birds who come to you.

    Amazing shots!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your "nature park" is so amazing. The pictures are wonderful and I love the observations you share about your birds -- you do so much more than just 'spot' them. I have never in my life seen a bird begging for food from other birds...really makes you wonder.

    ReplyDelete
  44. These are all wonderful captures. I'm always impressed when someone can actually name all the birds.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I really enjoyed seeing your backyard birds, Eileen. Your photos are very well done. I enjoyed hearing about the behavior of the birds too. We have nuthatches but they do not have red breasts. We also see pine siskins, chickadees, and wrens. I don't think our wrens have returned yet. You mentioned wrens being noisy; I think they have a lot of 'attitude!'

    ReplyDelete
  46. Most of those would be lifebirds for me. Love the Titmouse!
