A few minutes after I put up this mornings post, a male Eastern Bluebird stopped by…sooo cute! The following photos were taken through the glass of my bay window with a Nikon D7000 and my 18-200mm zoom lens. Hope you enjoy.
Then along came Mr. Cardinal which didn’t please a little Nuthatch who waited patiently for him to leave.
Mrs. Cardinal came by to check out the new seed…
And while she was visiting, a Red-bellied Woodpecker came to visit, too.
I think it was a “he” since the red extended all the way over his head to the front. Any birders out there know their woodpeckers?
I loved this picture because you almost never catch a bird with his eyes closed. So cute!
He was just about ready to leave and created a little flourish that sent Mrs. Cardinal up onto the hook holding the feeder.
He eventually flew off and Mrs. Cardinal went back to feeding. Hope you enjoyed this little series of pics. I so love feeding the birds. They are a joy to watch.
If you enjoy feeding and watching birds, you may enjoy the other post that published earlier today.
