Our World, My World


Happy Monday, enjoy your day! Have a great new week!

Tomorrow is Election Day in the USA. If you have not voted already, please go vote!  


I have been enjoying the winter birds showing up in my yard and neighborhood.  The Red-breasted Nuthatch is a favorite, maybe this winter will be an irruption year with all kinds of migrants showing up.  I would be happy to see the Pine Siskins, Evening Grosbeak and maybe even a Redpoll. But for now, I will enjoy what is in my yard and at my feeders.  

One of my winter birds, the White-throated Sparrow.




Some pretty yellow fall colors out our kitchen window.



The Red-breasted Nuthatch is being seen daily now. 


November 2nd we had a clematis bloom.






The Purple Finch, has a pretty raspberry color. 


Some pretty colors on the side yard. The red maples are looking beautiful. 








The female Red-bellied Woodpecker.


The male Cardinal and on the other side is the Red-breasted Nuthatch.


A Chipping Sparrow was still hanging around, they are a summer bird for me.



Thanks for your visit today!  I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.

Thanks to Angie the new host of  Mosaic Monday
Thanks to the hosting team of Our World Tuesday!
I hope to see you there. Thanks to both of the hosts today. Enjoy your day and new week.

As always I thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.

A riot of colour in your yard with the birds and the trees. I love the Purple Finch. I wish I could vote in your elections.

Hello Eileen,

As you said, it has a true raspberry colour.
Enjoy your little friends and have a good week!

Happy Monday!

You may get your wish for a bumper crop of winter finishes this year, Eileen. The reports that I have seen indicate that the seed crop in the north woods is poor so birds will have to move south to feed. Friends already have Pine Siskins, but I have not had them yet. But they live close to a park with substantial coniferous plantings and that may make the difference.

Lea said...

Wonderful to have a Clematis bloom this time of the year!
Pretty Autumn color in the trees.
Love all the birds, especially the Red-breasted Nuthatch. I have a few of them coming to my feeders now, but they move so fast I can't get a really good photo, but I am still trying! I hope they will stay all winter.
Have a wonderful week!

Anu said...

Hello Eileen. You have so many birds in your feeder. I like most that Red bellied woodpecker. Beautiful colours of autumn. Have a great week!

Red said...

I haven't seen purple finches here for many years.they are very handsome birds.

Janneke said...

The maples in your garden look wonderful in their autumn colors and I also love your garden birds, the white-throated sparrow is such a sweety with his yellow stripes on the head and then the red cardinal, I can only sigh......

Sandra said...

I have never seen a purple finch, wow and wow again. so beautiful, as is the sweet little white throat sparrow

Linda W. said...

Enjoyed seeing your bird feeder visitors!

Beautiful birds and fall colours, Eileen!

Red Rose Alley said...

That Purple finch is something else. And the red cardinal is a beauty. Would love to see it in person. Autumn is lovely around your neck of the woods. Lots of wonderful photos on here today, Eileen. : )

Happy November!

Missy George said...

Living so near to you we have the same birds. I have seen the white breasted not hatch but not the red. The colors are specially pretty this year, I think..Enjoy your week..

bill burke said...

Pretty birds and beautiful colours.
Enjoy the new week Eileen!

Adam Jones said...

I like your Red-breasted Nuthatch in that familiar pose. The White-throated Sparrow is a good looker too, and always good to see your Cardinals.

Betsy Banks Adams said...

Love seeing all of your birdies.... We don't have Purple Finches here much--but we have the House Finches. We have the White-breasted Nuthatches --but not the Red-breasted ones. They are so pretty.

I've been keeping an eye on our Bluebirds... They keep going in and out of the nestbox.... I hope they don't have babies in there NOW.... I know we've had a very warm Fall --but???????

Hugs,
Betsy

Lots of colour in your garden at this time of the year.

Carol @Comfort Spring Station said...

I do love visiting your yard!

Merlesworld said...

You have lots of little friends in your garden.
Merle..........

Jeanna said...

That purple finch is amazing and really goes with the colors in your side yard. We still have an abundance of yellow leaves which look pretty cool and some trees with yellow leaves not fallen.

Out on the prairie said...

I won't see that finch until February now, always a delight to have new visitors, like the return of old friends

RedPat said...

You certainly don't have to go far to see great birds, Eileen!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Fabulous yard birds! I'm seeing a few more here at our new home, but nothing like what you have. (Or even what we used to have when we owned our home here in our previous life -- but i guess it is a fair tradeoff for the travels.)

ellen b. said...

Purple Finch! Wow. Never heard of one. Great shots, Eileen. Happy Monday to you.

Sondra said...

Great fall color and welcome to the winter birds...our White Throated Sparrows arrived on Saturday! I love their song.

Martha Z said...

Nice fall color and a good collection on bird life.

Debbie said...

your yard birds are so beautiful eileen, i don't get those purple finches. maybe i will this year!!

you have some beautiful colors, my trees have just started to turn!!

happyone said...

Beautiful Cardinal.
Wonderful yellow color outside your window.

Carol Blackburn said...

I love it when my favorite birds come back for the season. The Cardinals arrived yesterday. We also had fun watching one little Chipmunk eating seeds that had fallen on the ground amongst 5 Mourning Doves and neither of them cared the other was there. Such a peaceful group. We are getting out to vote tomorrow courtesy of our grandson who just got his licence this summer. Since Mike has his arm in a brace from shoulder surgery and I hurt my right hip we had to enlist Jacob's services. He will also be driving me to the doctor for some adjusting of this hip to put me back in commission. I am so grateful for my grandson. I hope you have a great week.

krishna said...

So many cute birds are coming.. I've never seen a cardinal..Only I've seen them in photos..

Angie said...

Eileen - thanks so much for the shout out in your post - I am honored and humbled. I gratefully thank you for linking up to MM.

I guess that Clematis is a little confused, but I would welcome purple in my garden at this time of year!

And I am getting zero birds at my feeders these days - I assume there is still too much food around since I saw loads of chickadees, cross-bills, house finches and a few white-crowned sparrows plucking seeds from the larch trees today.

Murthy K v v s said...

Little sparrows are seen often in our place too ...great pics.

Lady Fi said...

Such pretty shots! I really enjoyed your autumn colours.

EricaSta said...

I enjoyed this Post. Happy MosaicMonday! It’s wonderful to view at the birds.

Phil Slade said...

Great pictures again today Eileen. We in the UK are taking a great interest in your mid-term elections. It's good to see America doing so well at the moment.

ann said...

Hi. You do have a great village of song birds, especially the cardinal! Love the photograph of the layers of trees in your yard, so pretty. Enjoy your weekend.

Sylvia said...

Eileen, I always love your bird photos. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week. Sylvia D.

Beautiful pics of birds and fall.. Have a happy week Eileen..

NatureFootstep said...

I have not heard the outcome of the voting yet. Been busy with an exhibition.
Nice to see birds.

Cranberry Morning said...

Beautiful, Eileen! I've never seen a red breasted nuthatch! And your purple Finch is different from ours, or else I'm miss identifying ours, which is likely. Have a wonderful day!

Denise inVA said...

Lovely fall photos and those birds you get, so neat to see. I especially enjoyed the white throated sparrow in this post. Thanks Eileen, have a great week what's left of it.

Smareis said...

Aqui as eleições foi mês passado.
Adorei as fotos. Os passaros são lindos. Lindo pipa-pau. A natureza é muito bela.

Um abraço, um sorriso e um excelente mês de novembro.
Precisei me ausentar devido viagem de urgência, mas estou de volta. Tem nova postagem.
