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

  7. 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.

  17. 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!

  20. 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......

  27. 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. : )

  28. 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..

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

  30. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  31. 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

  36. 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.

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  39. 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.)

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

  44. Beautiful Cardinal.
    Wonderful yellow color outside your window.

  45. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  47. 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.

  63. 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!
