A regular at the peanut butter cones,the Hairy Woodpecker This Blue Jay sat long enough to get a couple of pictures
We found this tree bathed in sunlight one aftrnoon.
I thought it looked quite regal.
A Downy Woodpecker with sunlight on his head.
The White-breasted Nuthatch is usually quick to moveon
but this one gave me a chance for a picture.
A quote I found recently says it all.
Learn to have a good time without
spending a lot of money.


  1. How nice to see the birds at your peanut butter cones! All very nice shots - And I especially enjoy the woodpeckers!

  2. Your photo's are always a joy. I really like the woodpeckers.


  3. Dear Ruth, Thanks for the lovely pictures of the birds, you've captured their real nature. I love the one of the bluejay, especially. Tell Jake his tree is lovely. Diane

  4. Your quote is ideal for these times, and the pictures are gorgeous. Thanks for both!

  5. RUTH----Your male Downy must be looking for the female that came to my feeder yesterday. Ya think???? ha ha ha... Love that quote... George and I certainly do have a good time and we DON'T spend alot of money. Of course, the way the birds are eating now, George might say that "I'm" spending alot of money on bird food. Gotta have my priorities in order you know!!!! ha

  6. Hello, I just found your blog. It's beautiful! I'm fairly new to the world of blogging and look forward to enjoying more of your great photos.


  7. I love the nuthatch! I had those in Alabama and would love to have them here. Maybe soon. Each year I'm attracting more to my feeders. We built a home in a former corn field- no trees, no birds. It's taken several years but finally they are coming!

    I have several unused wreaths and plan to use one for the birds too. I'll give you credit when I do!

  8. Your bird photos are amazing!! So wonderful to see right now when the Earth here is so icy cold...
    take care and keep warm!

  9. That is the good part about digital photography. Once you have the equipment you can have a blast without spending a penny. Right in the front yard.

  10. Love your birds Ruth. With all this wind and rain we've been having lately, my birds are aren't coming around much.
    I love that saying about having a good time without spending much money. If you just look, there is so much to to enjoy and it's all free.

  11. Ruth,
    Great quote!!
    I can't tell you how much fun I have with my digital camera and just being outside...not a penny being spent, just calories being burned, views being seen and plenty of clicking from the camera. Love the peanut butter cones, what a neat idea!

  12. Ruth: Absolutely beautiful bird photos which you have shared, thanks so much for the treat.

  13. I think they must like those peanut butter cones...lovely shots!

  14. They certainly are enjoying your hand made treats. Great photos.

  15. These are Superb Ruth!! Love them!!

  16. Great photos and smart quote!

  17. Hadn't read down far enough to see this post...great pictures! Nuthatches are so much fun to watch, and I love your quote!
