A few regulars

I am linking up with Wild Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes

The rain kept me mostly in the house and I was not able to go birding this weekend. So, I am sharing some of the regulars or the year round birds I saw in my yard this last couple of days.


A couple of House Finches have been having around the yard.


The Cardinals are daily visitors to my yard


Lately I have been seeing a group of House Sparrows at my feeders.


The White-Breasted Nuthatch is also a regular visitor and one of my favorites. I have been seeing some of the winter birds moving in like the Ruby-Crowned Kinglets and yesterday I saw my FOY Dark-eyed Junco.  Thanks for stopping by to see my Wild Birds..

Join in and post your birdies and to see more beautiful and wonderful bird photos please visit:
 Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday and Michelle's  Nature Notes.  Thanks to our host Michelle our host Stewart.  Happy Birding and have a wonderful week!

  12. So far, I haven't had any House Sparrows here... I'm glad since I have heard that they can be mean... BUT--they are pretty little birds.

    Sorry about all of your rain. We haven't had a drop here --and really do need some rain now...BUT--I'm not complaining since our weather has been fabulous...

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  18. Hubby noticed a junco the other day. I thought that seemed early, until I realized it is mid-October. Our weather has been so warm lately, it doesn't seem like it's that late in the year already. wow-where does the time go!!!

  35. Hi Eileen

    As you know I have a soft spot for birds - great to see and enjoy your photos, you have some lovely looking birds, although I guess one countries common bird is another countries exotic - we sometimes get parrots and kingfishers!
    Have a great week

  37. Are you feeding your birds on deck railing, Eileen? I do--safe from chipmunks and I can see closeup. Have been seeing a few new ones in the yard. Lots of cardinals like your pretties. And I'd love to see one of those sturdy little nuthatches.
