Some January Visitors to My Yard

If you feed them, they will come.
House Finch
Northern Cardinal
Blue Jays
Mockingbird (I think).


  1. Linda,

    Thanks for joining my not-so-WW linky party! I used to keep the bird feeder stocked and it was such a delight to watch them flock to the seeds from the comfort of our dining room window. The kids loved it and it was a fun way to learn about them as we later would identify them in books. I forgot a lot of what I learned from those days but I do recognize most of yours featured here. I believe the last one is a Mockingbird. That crazy thing is Tennessee's state bird. They terrify me, too. I had an encounter with one, one spring outside of Kohl's. I guess I must have passed to close to its territory as it flew near me repeatedly scaring the life out of me. Now, every time I see one I keep my eye on it and pray it doesn't attack me. :)

  2. I saw my first purple finch the other day

  3. The cardinal is a particularly striking sight to see.

  4. What a cute bunch of wee birds. I love that red cardinal, he sure stands out.

  5. Lovely bird captures. They pose well for you. :)

  6. Great photographs of your yard visitors - just lovely.

    All the best Jan

  7. You got some great portraits of your visitors.
