  2. I would love to put out a bird feeder, but I think my cats would think it's a breakfast buffet. Great colorful pictures.

  5. Love this post, Diane. I was looking at each pic and thinking - fun! And then I came to the last pic and laughed out loud :D

  6. What a wonderful variety of colors! I had thought that different food attracted different colors of birds, but it doesn't look like it in this case!

  7. Very nice, you got some good clear shots. Good ID on the birds too. That's a male Downy Woodpecker, females don't have the red patch on the head and the House Finch is a male too, females are all brown.

    By the expression on that squirrel's face I can tell he is thinking of ways to get into your feeder... I've seen that look before!

  9. I love the variety of life in your backyard! The colors are just wonderful! Also, that squirrel needs to find another hangout, I think.

    We've had bird feeders in such a place that the squirrels got a good feast. Finally wisened up and moved it.

  22. Awesome bird shots and I love the look on the squirrel's face as he's checking it all out! They are sneaky little devils, aren't they!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sorry, I'm with Lisa!!! I enjoy the squirrels waaaay more than I enjoy birds! Don't get me wrong, I love birds too...but I am totally "nutty" about squirrels!

    ReplyDelete
  24. *chuckles* Mr.Squirrel looks on. I guess he's trying to figure if he can get some too. :D Nice collection of photos.

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a wonderful assortment you are attracting with the new feeder! I love seeing squirrel

  26. Squirrels! Yuck, they are the bane of our existence down here. They run across the pool cage and just drive me nuts! Putting out mothballs will deter them for a while but then the stinkers are back.

    Your gold finches are gorgeous.

  27. Love this post; it reminded me of growing up. We had a woods in the back of our house, and there were days when my mom thought she was going to loose her mind because the woodpeckers were going at it non-stop.
    Our "univited guests" to our bird feeder (which was a large piece of suet that my mom would hang from a tree) were the big black crows that scared all the other birds away :(

  32. Those uninvited guests always seem to know when you're throwing a party!!! Love the woodpecker! One of my favorite birds...I have 3 right now that are all over the trees in our side yard. They crack me up!

  33. Love your bird feeder! I want to get one and have been meaning to all summer but just haven't gotten around to it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. AHhhhh - great pics.... even the squirrel :)

  35. I'm finally finding time to catch up with everyone. I have found a routine... of sorts.

    Love the photo's this week!

  36. I love birds. Your woodpecker looks a little ruffled. Sort of like me when I first wake up. :) I like the squirrels too, and I like watching my husband's battles trying to keep the squirrels away from the bird feeder. The squirrel always wins and I laugh.

  37. We get many of the same birds (and uninvited guests) as you ... I think your IDs are right on the money.

    ReplyDelete
  38. That is one busy feeder! I love thise uninvited guests. As long as they're polite.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Each time I see those yellow finches I'm struck by their bright color.

    It's the chipmunks that are most uninvited around here - they're a nuisance!
