Super....great birds. And of course, goes without saying...sweet squirrel.

That lattice work behind the bluejay really makes a spectacular work of artistry in your photo.

I do really like those White-throated Sparrows.

Great photos of all the birds and the squirrel. I especially like the Junco with those soft grey feathers.

Nancy J said...

Beautiful birds, and that Fred, did he know you were there, and flick his tail on purpose. Blue-jay, my favourite.

I love your close-ups Karen, great photos! The black squirrel is always a novelty with me as we don't get them down here. He's a cutie!

Right now I am in BC Karen. My first yard bird this morning was a Bewick's Wren.

Fred is amongst some fine feathered friends.

Phil Slade said...

Those are all lovely portraits of your garden Karen. I especially like the White-throated Sparrow but the Morning Dove is a real winner. great detail in the dove's plumage.

I just wish I could hear that sparrows cheery, some might say monotonous, whistling.
