How delightful. I love the amount of colour you can see in the middle shot.
And since we don't have hummers here, even the feeders are so different to any feeder you could buy here .

Young blue tits, and young blue tit being fed.
Young great tit
How did I get to be this age and never see birds sunbathing before! I thought this blackbird was injured at first till it got up and hopped away. A little research informed me that it's quite common for birds to sunbathe - and sure enough I've seen the blackbird since, and also a robin and a great tit, all lying on the hot shed roof enjoying the sunshine.
I love the send shot. It looks like the one on the bottom is holding on for dear life to the hind feathers of the other one... Love your photos.

I love looking out my windows at my birds. Lately I have been excited to see the Orioles and the Hummingbirds. The shots of the h-bird are from my sister in laws house.

What a wonderful view your SIL has - aside from the birds I'm envious of the scenery .
We don't have orioles here - they featured in some of my favourite books when I was little, so I loved your first photo.

This morning I had two woodpeckers at the same h-bird feeder. One was drinking and the other waiting his turn. Why didn't I have my camera handy???? grr...

Another bird I love watching is the Northern Flicker. It looks like a woodpecker but it eats ants. I have been trying to capture him on the camera but I have bad timing.

Saw these ducklings at a pond behind the restaurant we went to tonight. There were also some loons out on the water but they were out of my range for good photos with the lens I had.

I loved these baby mallards and could have stayed there all night watching them. However the husband dragged us away, boo :P

I just cant get enough of the little chickadees. They always make me smile! This photo was taken this past Sat. I plopped down in the backyard to just watch and enjoy all the birds in the yard....I had chickadees, red polls, hairy and downy woodpeckers and nuthatches, but the chickadees were the only ones that cooperated with the camera!

Everyones photos are so great! I love seeing all the different birds!

I especially love the hummingbird shots. I used to get hummingbirds all the time at my feeders when we lived in WA state but I havent seen one since we moved to Alaska

Oh wow, you did well with those ducklings. They move so fast I always find it hard to get a decent shot. I found a mother with nine little ducklings just a few days back - I was sure glad I had a video as it was the best way to capture them. They are irresistible, aren't they. I spent ages watching them too .
I still can't get over how much the chickadees are like our coal tits. From stamp images I've seen I always thought of them as fat little birds .
I wonder if your red polls are the same as ours - I'm going to have to get me an American bird book one of these days!!

What a darling photo of the baby duck. This past Sunday we were out for a drive and saw a group of Canadian Geese. There must have been atleast 20 goslings in the group. I didn't dare stop for photos since the last time I tried to take photos of Canadian Geese I got attacked.

Cook22 Your photos (especially the second, with the bird dangling) beg for captions! Thanks for the laugh (and the need to clean coffee off of my monitor)!

I just realized we had a robin's nest in our backyard. I don't know how I missed it since it was on the first branch up. Now the baby has fledged...

Okay you are going to think I have lost my mind. Like I have said before I love sitting and watching the birds in the backyard. I was excited to see two different kinds of woodpeckers yesterday. I think I have at least two sets of mates or several babies.

Photo #1 you can see what I think is an adult (with the red on the head) and three perhaps babies.

Photo #2 on the suet block you can see a larger woodpecker peeking around from the back as the smaller one looks on.

Photo #3 is one of the small ones that let me get as close as 2.5 feet away.

When my husband got home from work a third type of woodpecker decided to show up. I didn't believe him until this morning when I saw it. It is a Red bellied woodpecker. I will get a photo next time.

With the angle of pic #3 its a bit hard to tell but to me it does look like a Hairy woodpecker. They are much bigger than the Downy woodpecker, which I believe is the smaller ones in pics 1 and 2. The woodpecker with the red head is a male.

I dont think you're crazy. Like I said before, I sit out there watching the birds at my feeders all the time Heck, even when its -20 out I'll be out there, thats how crazy I am, LOL.

I love the woodpeckers also, as I have several groups of Downy and Hairy's that come see me everyday. They sure do love their suet!

Great shots Diana!

Thanks and Yes you are correct about the birds. The downy is a small little guy. Just to let you know my husband wasn't lying. lol... I saw the larger one he was talking about. While drinking my coffee I noticed something fly towards the suet and there he was, the Red bellied woodpecker. Not really sure why they call him that since his belly isn't red. oh well. Here is a picture of him. I just wish it was more focused. Just before leaving the house I had two of the Red bellied, one of the Hairy and three of the downy at the feeder all at once. I think I will need to get more suet tomorrow.

Wow, I am amazed any bird would come to a feeder in -20 degrees. I wouldn't even leave the house.

Default Goldfinch and killdeer

We went for a walk at Rondeau today but there was not much to photo on the roads and the bush was full of mosquitoes so we avoided there. But I did get a good shot of an American Goldfinch and the Killdeer.

Last semester while waiting for my yoga class there were two killdeer (mamma and poppa) with four eggs. It was fun to watch them pretending to be injured but their screeching was quite annoying. Of course, dope me, kept forgetting to bring my camera with me. There are killdeer on the little golf course where I live but haven't been able to get their pictures.

Woodpeckers in the garden!! I am envious.
I don't think you're crazy either, I can spend an age sitting on the cold tiled floor of our back porch watching the birds. From time to time DH grumbles about what the food must cost (just as well he doesn't actually know how much mealworms cost), but if the truth be told he enjoys them too, he's just not as patient to sit.
The Killdeer is quite an elegant looking bird. I've never heard of them before, off to look up a bit about them.

I believe the Killdeer is in the same family as the Sandpiper or else related.

When we get that cold its usually just the chickadees and nuthatches that are out. Its the best time to photograph them because they stay still to remain warm, so great shots are possible. The chickadees are too cute...they curl up into these little puffy balls and just sit on the feeding shelf I have under my dining room window. Keeps the dogs and cats occupied for hrs, watching the birds sit there

I have to do one more bird photo. We went to my Brother-In-Laws this past weekend and they have an old wooden shed where a ladder is hanging. A robin decided the best place to make her nest is ontop of the ladder. She has four babies in there.

There was a lot of action at my feeders Tues morning, I could barely keep up, LOL. I had the chickadees and then a male/female pair of both Hairy and Downy woodpeckers. Then there were also 2 red squirrels that were just sitting in the willow tree that the feeders hang in, just chattering away at me. I stood out there between 2 suet feeders for about an hr to try and get some good shots.

Great shots - and I'd have been the same, I can spend ages sitting on the floor watching the birds. I think I like the second shot best of all.

Wow - what a fantastic shot of the open beaks.

Here are some feathered creatures I took this morning and last week. Even though there are killdeers on our little golf course, I had to go to the zoo to photograph one. The scarlet macaw was also taken at the zoo. The others were taken this morning at a riparian area.

GREAT photos! Esp. love the stiltons - the reflections in the water look amazing.

That's one handsome macaw, but like Jo I think the stilts photo is wonderful - the reflections, and long-legged birds have an elegance. It reminds me a bit of a stamp somebody gave me with an avocet.

I had to look up avocet. Perhaps avocets and stilts are cousins. There is even an American avocet that is protected under some kind of migratory act.
