Birds at the Feeders and Around the Yard

I was surprised to see this fella in the birch tree by our deck; I haven't seen one in a while. The dark-eyed junco has such a pretty pink bill and a slate color with a white underbelly that it makes him very distinctive. He may be coming for the winter.

Juvenile Goldfinches have been at my feeders lately. They are just too cute.

Male and female Downy Woodpeckers have been on my suet feeders and running up and down the birch trees by the feeders.

Nuthatches and Tufted Titmice are busy too.

I always love to see the Carolina Chickadees at the feeders.

Around the yard . . .

Check out this marbled orb weaver spider. It was on a stump in the yard. 

When your mower is in for repair, we get mushrooms in the yard. 

Thanks for stopping by for another day of Life in Kentucky - Judy.
