I have had very few birds at my feeders recently,so I have gone back to this past fall.
I start today with a pretty leaf,I found on my yard.
I enjoy finding a scene like this,where a yellow leaf has landed among the dark red leaves.
Fall is such a lovely time of year,so I don't mind re-visiting this time.
All the bird pictures were taken while I was sitting on my deck.
Here is my favourite yard bird.I smile whenever I see a Black-capped Chickadee.
This little fella was enjoying some suet,hung just off my deck.
I like how the feather detail shows up in this picture.
The House Finches were going to great lengths to get at the seeds on this tree.
When I watch the birds feeding like this,I find myself wondering just how much I would be complaining if I had to work that hard to eat.
I was really pleased to have this Dark-eyed Junco pose for me in the sunshine.
He seemed to turn his head this way and that,hoping to strike that perfect pose.
It seems like for today I am focusing on the smaller birds.
Here we have an American Goldfinch in fall/winter plumage.
Catching that sparkle in the eye,is a special treat.
Thought for today:
