WELCOME LITTLE BIRDS – Marilyn Armstrong

As promised, I went out and took pictures. I should have gone out earlier because there are more birds earlier, but I was catching up with myself having somehow missed yesterday and being sure today was Thursday.

This was a problem because I missed Duke’s vet appointment and Garry was planning to go to a luncheon that isn’t until tomorrow. We really have totally lost track of days. Even when I look at the calendar, I forget 30 seconds later.

But I did get out there. And I did take pictures. I also added a second feeder designed to attract bigger birds.

Bird identifiers are welcome to aid me. I have the book but I’ve been too tired and overwhelmed politically to even begin looking.

It’s been a crazy ass week!

  1. I was looking forward to seeing your bird photos. It’s good to see different birds. I don’t know what yours are, but they are something more unique than my sparrows

        1. Owen will be here tomorrow, so I will ask him to fill the feeders. There’s also a lot of wind and I worry the feeders are going to get blown away. We’ve had an awful lot of wind and heavy rain. It’s pretty bad.

        1. Apparently! The first morning after we put them out, there were dozens of them coming and going from the feeder. Now I have two feeders, but the flat one get emptied out so fast I never get to see the birds. Must be the great food!

  2. Great bird shots. I hope we can find out what they are as they are different from the birds here as well. I have that “what day is it?” problem if I spend a few days home alone.

      1. The tufted titmouse is the guy with the striped black head, right? What’s the second one? The one with the beak that looks like a hummingbird, but he’s a little big and the hummers have a red throat, at least all the ones I’ve seen.

        1. I think the black stripe is a black ‘cap’ (chicadee) but the long beak was the one i didn’t get!?

          If he flies like a hummingbird then maybe he’s a ‘tourist’. Do HB’s eat nuts? I dunno?

    1. That’s what everyone tells me, but I haven’t seen any of them in my yard at all. It may be all the barking … or that the last lot were wiped out by a couple of bobcats. But they don’t hang around. We also have lurking coyotes and fisher cats. It’s a dangerous place for anything that can’t fly.

  4. The only one of those lovely birds I recognize is the chickadee. Otherwise…lovely birds, no clue what they are though… we don’t get a lot of diversity in bird-dom in Utah in the winter, just the LBBs (usually house wrens) (LBB is little brown bird) 😉

  5. That’s a Nuthatch in photo 3- they make the best noises- they sound like they are complaining- it is adorable. Others are Titmouse and Black capped Chickadee. Looking forward to more!
