The Birds I've Missed

A woodpecker investigating a small bird house.
A Blue bird sitting on a post, yes, it's there
A Blue Jay looking for good pecans.
A small sparrow that worked hard to get the moth in his mouth.
I took pictures as he hopped and chased it.
It was a well earned snack.
A flighty Mocking Bird
who kept landing and taking off.
Another Blue Jay thought it was hidden
A wood pecker looking for a meal 
in the large pecan trees Mom and Dad planted when they married.
A shy Cardinal in a pine...
I need more practice!

Its fun to watch the birds. You got some great shots there. I especially enjoy watching them in the bird bath in the back yard under the cedar tree in early evening all lined up for their baths. Sometimes I have to clean and fill the bath 2 or 3 times and its funny, but they patiently wait on upper branches while i do this. I love it. Nice photos Gail. H to M

I have been listening to the sounds of the woodpeckers in the evening, knocking out a rhythm on the tree. Lovely birds you did not miss.

Lovely pictures, how wonderful to have a tree that your mum and dad planted :)Best wishes, the sun is slowly coming out here!

looks like you have a lot of different birds hanging out.. that silly wood pecker will NOT fit in that tiny box.. wait! maybe he was eating the box... Birds are hard because there is always something between us and the bird and because they fly if we get close

I'd say you are doing a good job with the bird photos. Those flighty creatures are not easy to get them to pose.

I think you did wonderfully all great shots. I love your birds. Hug B

What fun photos. We have a woodpecker around here, but we haven't seen him yet. You sure can hear him working away . . . I enjoy that sound:)

Song-bird stalker at large! You certainly captured some lovely birds. I hear them in the morning. So delightful!

Sandy said...

Beautiful bird pictures, they're so magical when you watch them.

God bless, Gail. ♥

You are sure blessed with such an assortment of birds, Gail!
Do you live on a heritage farm? The one your folks raised you on?
