Oh, adorable indeed, Karen!! These look so much like the visitors to my feeder these days -- and, yes, the squirrel, too! He sits and waits for peanuts!! Hope you have a beautiful day!

I can't decide which is the cutest! ;-))

Gail Dixon (LaBelle) said...

These are all so awesome! My favorite might have to be the squirrel. He looks like he's posing for his portrait. Nice job, Karen!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I think Stony is musing about whether you'll remember to fill the peanut feeder when he empties it! (He's so darn cute.) Birds are wonderful, especially the blue jay with his prize find in his beak. Lovely post.

Debbie said...

Awesome captures Karen, I'm not surprised you included Stoney, who seems to enjoy posing for pictures!!

Nancy J said...

Lovely, every one, I find it amazing to realise you see all this at your home. One posing guy, love that tail. Cheers, Jean.

Nice bird shots, but I like the squirrel the best.

A very nice series of guests at your feeders. I especially like the little chickadee.

What a lot of entertaining visitors you have. That squirrel is adorable - though I'm sure he's also lots of trouble.

Splendid series and great photographs!
I'm partial to the birds but understand a squirrel has to eat, too. LOL!

Me said...

Wonderful! Love the nuthatch(my favorite), and that darn squirrel of course.

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh, I love your peanut brigade and the other visitors too. I think Stoney Braveheart might be contemplating how to get all of the peanuts back to his tree.
