Hanging Out In The Cedar Tree

 Red-breasted (looks more orange to me) Nuthatch,
from the window. I was able to open the window to get these pics. This little guy is pretty tame. (I am healing well, and able to get around better now! I went for a short walk down by the river Sunday afternoon. It didn't yield much photo wise, but it was wonderful to be outside!!) Okay... I did get a pretty awesome Canada Goose photo or two, which I will post next week.

lots of photo memes, because I am recovering from my nasty slip and fall accident. Once I am up and around, I hope to get out and about, to take HEAPS of photos. For now, all shots are snapped from the windows of my house...and yes, I am suffering  tremendously with "cabin fever"!

At Feeders, On Fences

I'm sorry that I haven't been able to stop by your blogs often to comment in the past week.
I had a nasty fall last Tuesday, down 8 icy cement steps, landing on by back. I am lucky, nothing was broken, but I have torn ligaments, and deep bruising  in the lumbar region of my spine, which equals pain and immobility. My doc says I should heal in about 3-4 weeks.
It was a busy weekend in the yard! All these shots were taken from my bedroom window. My world has once again been viewed from a very small perimeter, but it's wonderful all the same.

A Junco Lands

Whew...I made it!

Shall I sing for you now?

The Dark-eyed Junco is a medium-sized sparrow with a rounded head, a short, stout bill and a fairly long, conspicuous tail. Juncos vary across the country, but in general they’re dark gray or brown birds brightened up by a pink bill and white outer tail feathers that periodically flash open, particularly in flight.
