Bird pics.

Category: Bird Brain Blog | Posted: Sun Oct 17, 2010 5:10 pm

Took a few pics of the birds today. It is a bright sunny day with temps in the mid 70's F.

This first one is of a Blue Nuthatch.



Here is a Chickadee, gorging himself.....again!



And some Goldfinch on the ground gathering up the dropped sunflower seeds. They are in their winter plumage now. Earlier I had a Bluejay complaining that the water bowl was empty.I filled it and had barely gotten back up on the porch and he was out there drinking. Yesterday he had taken 3 or 4 baths in it. He must have been really dirty! It was the same bird, because he would bath then fly up on a limb and then come back down for another go at it.



The birds must know that winter is on it's way as they are beefing up for it.

Oh my now I know what the name of that little bird is I have, it's a chickadee. I thought it was a small nuthatch...love to hear them!

How I wish we had nuthatches here in Scotland. Sadly the only ones in Britain don't come as far north as my garden.

The chickadees are really comical. The hit the feeder all day long from dawn to dusk. I can set on the porch and watch them for hours.
