The Beauty Around Us

Valerie’s Feathered Friends

I am not scheduled to work on Tuesdays. This past Tuesday I visited my friend, Valerie, at her house. While sitting on the deck, chatting, I photographed some of the birds that frequented Valerie’s bird feeders.

Male Red-Winged Blackbird

White-Crowned Sparrow

White-Throated Sparrow

Blue Jay

Male Purple Finch

Female Purple Finch

Robin, with ruffled feathers

Goldfinch

I originally thought this bird was a Female Purple Finch. A friend said she thought it was a Vesper Sparrow. Another friend says it is a Female Red-Winged Blackbird. I wish all birds wore name tags!

This last bird was my favorite sighting of the day. It was the first time I had ever set eyes on the bird!

Indigo Bunting

In addition to taking pictures of birds, I took pictures of some backyard critters that visited us on the deck. I will share those pictures in my next blog post.

    Great bird pictures. I've seen Red-winged Blackbirds here –but they never come close to the feeders… My birds are mad at me today since I took all of the feeders down to power-wash the deck…. haHugs,Betsy

    Wow! This is an impressive series of shots…I think there should be a little caption floating above each bird telling us what they are…you know like a cartoon caption…LOL
