At the Feeders and in the Trees - Week 4

The birds at my feeders are eating like crazy. So I have been taking lots of photos.




I'm filling the feeders almost daily. The Carolina Chickees can hardly wait for me to put the lid on the feeders and they start whistling. I know they want me to hurry up and get out of the way. 




Love this shot of the Tufted Titmouse taking off from the perch.





The Dark-eyed Junco likes to eat sunflower hearts.




Some may not find the Mourning Dove exciting but this is the first time I have ever photographed one in a tree. Usually they are on the ground or on my deck. So I am excited about this pic.





The cardinals are always a joy to watch.



Find more of my birds, barns, and outdoor posts under the Outdoor and Travel Posts on the navigation. Thanks for stopping by for At the Feeders and in the Trees - Week 4.

You have a great variety of birds Judy -- I'm pretty sure I remember that you're in Texas and if so, then it is no surprise that you have Northern and Southern birds both. I love the flight shot (or taking off shot) and the feeder with the variety of birds -- a different one on each perch. You've mae them very welcome! Thanks for sharing.

Oh oops, I just see that you're in Kentucky -- just as I hit send of course. Well, you must be on both northern and southern flight paths too. (That was what we learned when we wintered in Texas.) The finches and juncos are birds we saw all the time at our feeders in Oregon. The cardinals, never -- only when we traveled in the South.

Hello dear Judy
Wonderful photos of such a great variety of birds at your feeders.
As a bird lover - thank you for taking care of these precious creatures during the cold wintry days.
I'm from New Zealand too where the sun is shining as we are enjoying Summer!
Hard to comprehend in your low temps I know!
Following you now - do pop over and say hello to me!

Hi Judy, do you know how envious I am of the variety of birdlife that your feeders attract? Much more glamorous than the sparrows; blue tits; thrushes; robins, magpies and crows that live with us here.
