All About The Birds

This post is all about the birds. I used to post more bird photos, but recently have shifted to other things. Hopefully with a new camera and when warmer weather returns, I can once again capture those bird images.

This first picture is taken through my, less than clean living room window. Can you see the bird? 
I'll give you a hint. It is on the trunk of the tree and blends in very well.

Yes, it is a Brown Creeper. This guy is a master at camouflage, and rarely sits in one place for more than a second or two.


The rest of today's birds are Pine Siskins. These little guys don't mind being near people, so on a comfortable winter day, I took my camera outside and waited for them to come.


I didn't have to wait long. Soon they were coming in to get a drink from the heated birdbath.


I think this one was ready to drop down for a drink.,

 I was having so much fun and taking far more pictures than I needed, but that is OK.

 Birdies, beware, I will be back often as the weather warms up.


These are such small, nondescript birds, but the detail in their feathers is amazing. They brought me joy that day and I hope these pictures brought a smile to your face.

  1. Oh, I love your birdies. Terrific captures. So many of the little nondescript birds are such "flitters" that I can never get very good photos of them.
    Of course if I had a great camera that would help. (:0)

  3. I would never be able to tell a Pine Siskin from a sparrow. The Creeper is awesome! I think I saw one many decades ago.

  4. If you had not said to look closely at the tree trunk, I am not sure I would have noticed the bird! The Pine Siskin is so cute.

  13. They are sure small. I am waiting for the cold to go away, or actually for the rainy, cloudy days to go away, before I venture back out to take pictures. These are great shots, Ruth.
