I see the Pine Warbler at my feeder daily, the males are such a pretty yellow color. The Downy Woodpecker and Carolina Wren also enjoy this suet feeder.

Love bird close ups . .
Thanks for always treating us . . .

All I have to offer are phone photos through a screened window.
But sweet colorful birds are my visitors!

Mary Cromer said...

Such sweet birds...all of them! Those Carolina Wrens... I will share a story next week about them. Love their cheerfulness, first wee birds to tug at my heart over 35 years ago. Have a wonderful week~

when i saw that sweet first photo i thought, finally proof that fat can be pretty.. so sweet

David Gascoigne said...

I am always amazed when I see a Pine Warbler on a bird feeder. I have never seen that happen here, perhaps because when they arrive they are focused on finding a mate and a nest site. It’s pouring rain this morning so we had to close our nets - no bird banding today.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Nice to see the Pine Warblers, such a hardy lat. They were scarce in my south Florida neighborhood this winter and spring. I think Mr Linky overslept this morning. Will try to get back later.

Tom said...

...Eileen, such a lovely collection, enjoy your week.

An excellent selection of birds. They look so cute and are enjoying their snack time.
Have a wonderful week Eileen.

I must admit I love the brightly coloured birds most. We get so drab in winter!
Thanks for hosting.

Eileen, warblers are just arriving in our area. Thanks for sharing.

Brian King said...

The Pine Warbler is fantastic! That's one I've never had in the yard. Wrens are one of my favorites...they're so busy all the time!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Those little birds are serious about getting in there and getting something to eat! Enjoy your weekend! Happy Mother's day! Hugs!

Hello, Eileen. A lovely selection of shots again today. Have a great new eeek.

Nancy Chan said...

I am so tempted to get a bird feeder to hang in my garden. The birds are so pretty! Have a beautiful weekend!

A Colorful World said...

Happy Mother's Day! Love the Pine Warbler.

Mildred said...

Happy Mother's Day weekend, Eileen. Thanks for sharing these gorgeous bird pics. I said good bye to my 15 yr old cat Kaboodle this week. She is greatly missed.

Nick V. said...

PS: Thanks for hosting!

Nick Va said...

Great shots, Eileen!

Dee said...

Looks like everyone is enjoying a bit of lunch!

Jo said...

Oh Eileen, your pine warbler is my favorite. Thanks for hosting this meme. Have a great day. Jo

Suzanne Prickett said...

Hi Eileen! I've had visits by the Carolina Wrens, but haven't seen any in a couple of years now. I still get the Carolina Chickadees, and love them dearly. One year I also got to photograph a Tufted Titmouse, and I was so fascinated with this bird. Maybe I can do a sharing critter post on that one someday. You've gotten great shots of these birds, and I would love to have a visit from a Pine Warbler. I don't have any luck with the suet cages...no one likes them. I always end up throwing them away.

I've been absent for a little while, and pretty busy with my grandson at school. Have a Happy Mother's Day, Eileen!

RedPat said...

I'm amazed at the variety of birds you get at your feeders, Eileen! And also a bit envious! ;-)

Jeanna said...

I can't get over how handsome the woodpecker is every time I see one. I went on a boat bird tour for a bird festival nearby and barely spotted a thing even though I could hear them, I don't know how you all develop those laser-focused eyes! The male Pine Warbler is so festive.

Pam said...

Haven't posted here in a long long time, been a busy girl! Good to join up again, looking forward to seeing what everyone contributed.

Jean @sonotorganized.com said...

What a great collection of birds! Great photos of the pine warbler and I enjoyed seeing your Carolina wrens as ours has apparently found somewhere else to settle for a while. Sure miss its song in the mornings! Hope you have a great weekend and a wonderful Mother's Day!

Our photos said...

Very nice

Sondra said...

Some of my favorite birds up there! The pine warbler shot is super!!

Red said...

I guess we'll have to feed more suet as we never get a warbler to a feeder.

happyone said...

Nice to see all the different birds. : )
Happy Mother's Day to you too.

Linda W. said...

Oh I just love that bright yellow bird!

Linda said...

Nice shots! Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Betty Crow said...

You sure do have a good variety of birds at your feeders. The pine warbler sure is a pretty bird. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Anni said...

G'day,Eileen! Great collection of beautiful birds!

Christa atCedarmereFarm said...

Happy Mother's Day Eileen. It's so exciting to see so many birds out and about, isn't it.

Lady Fi said...

Lovely shots.

Irma said...

Hello Eileen,
Wonderful series of photos of the different bird species.
I really like photo 1.
Best regards, Irma

Karen S. said...

Did you know your photos make up for all the slow to arrive gifts from nature for us here in Minnesota. You are a blessing in so many ways! I sure hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day in all that you do. Take care Eileen!
