At the Feeders and in the Trees - Week 18

The White-breasted Nuthatch has been visiting regularly. He loves black-oil sunflower seeds. 

A Mourning Dove let me take a few pics of him on my deck railing. Usually they are on the ground below my feeders but today I got lucky. Do you see the black spots on his wings his big eye seems to be looking right at me. 

I've been filling my finch feeders just about daily with nyjer food. I could watch these American Goldfinches all day. 

I haven't seen any eye disease on them. 

Several juvenile goldfinch are coming to the feeders. They are just too cute. 

This little one put on a show drying his wings. Lots of fluttering.

The Northern Cardinals are visiting and I am thankful to get a few pics  of this beauty.
