Very beautiful. When I was little I read about Red-winged Blackbirds but had no idea what they looked like. It is lovely to see your photographs.

Laura said...

absolutely wonderful photos Karen. There is a pair of cardinals nesting in a bush outside my bedroom window, I'be been watching them from their courtship this winter, to nest building and now Mamma is sitting on the eggs. I know exactly where the nest is, but it is covered well by foliage and I cannot get a photo. It is fun just knowing what is happening, watching poppa come back and forth.

Benny, he is the cutest, do all your squirrels have names? and all the birds, every one has so many different feathers, amongst their main ones, hope your weather is warming up as we cool down.

The sparrow looks very well fed! I used to see black and grey squirrels in NY but the squirrels I see in Colorado all are an oragne brow color.

Frank said...

Super set of close encounters Karen.

Hope you are having a good week.

All very beautiful, and to me, exotic. Thank you.

TexWisGirl said...

Excellent bird photos and what a good-looking black squirrel.

Well hello Benny! I don't remember you from last year. (He's looking pretty good; spring molt must be over?). And the feathers are wonderful.. as always. Great shot of the red-wing showing off his colors.

Gail Dixon said...

I love your black squirrels! The bird pics are exquisite as always.

Amy Franks said...

love your photos - we don't have anything that interesting here :-)

Stephanie said...

The squirrel looks at home on the fence, nice reflection in the eye. Wonderful images of the birds!

Rambling Woods said...

Hello Karen..I hope the weather will let you get out before it gets too warm. From too cold to too warm.. Beautiful fur on this squirrel and the detail on the birds is wonderful...Michelle

Such a lovely variety of cuties you've captured Karen. Love them all.

David Gascoigne said...

Looks like a gathering of old friends.

Leora said...

Such sharp, clear photos. I don't get to see a red-winged blackbird. Your other birds I do see in my neighborhood.

Great photos. That squirrel looks very comfortable on the fence.

I love red-winged blackbirds! I've been stalking one for weeks, but he's too fast for me!

Your Robins are so beautiful, but that squirrel wins the day again for cuteness.

eileeninmd said...

Karen, wonderful birds and images! Enjoy your week!

Judy said...

Honestly, where is nature when I look at it? It never looks as good as yours!

Barb said...

Many feathered friends, Karen - and Benny is looking mighty sleek.

aspiritofsimplicity said...

wonderful birds! these are of the type that we normally have around here. We don't get the black squirrels though.

Christa atCedarmereFarm said...

Fabulous photos, Karen. The squirrel looks so at home on your deck! The birds look very healthy and happy. (I guess because they have a generous and loving hostess?)

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Your photos are very sharp and clear, as well as beautiful of course.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I enlarged the photos...outstanding!!! Great post as always. It's like they all posed for you....love the squirrel.

Wonderful captures.

Susan said...

Hi Karen, beautiful birds - I love all your photos of them.
Seems I'm a smitten with handsome Benny as a lot of others - he's just the most gorgeous fellow!! Cheers now :D)

Stewart M said...

What a cracking set of pictures - and even as abiding I like Ottis!

We have a possum called Bob who lives in our garden, but his nocturnal habits make photography difficult!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
