House finch at the window feeder...too busy eating to notice me there...for a moment anyway.

Just would not sit still....note the cedar nut in its claw...cute..saving it?

Red bellied woodpecker... I was able to snap a good number of shots before it took off.. Pretty bird...

I'm surprised these guys don't mind the tiny ledge. Also surprised they like safflower. Guess the gazebo feeder is easier to cling to than the mandarin one (where the sunflower seeds are)

Pretty and pink... they all use their beaks to navigate their way along the fence (those that were in cages)...some were hard to snap, they wouldn't sit still :)

I think it's neat that pigeons come in so many colors. This one was interrupted (by me with my camera) while sampling fallen seed from the bird feeder...

Awwww, this one was a little camera shy....(or busy eating...hmmm)...

I wonder how many of these there are around here... I'm happy to see them however many... come back often!

Always surprised when a bird I don't expect to like safflower stops by for some. I wonder if birds have cravings too...

A red-bellied woodpecker... Not sure which is more surprising... a sort of clear shot, or that it didn't bolt when I finally managed to aim the camera...what pretty bird.

I think this chickadee is lookin' right at me...what a cutie.

So pretty, so colorful....

Haven't seen any of these beauties around lately. Until this past weekend at least...(welcome back!)

A red bellied woodpecker...slightly blurry as it's thru a dirty window... couldn't resist trying for a decent shot anyway...
I think this is a type of falcon (not sure though) was really big...and a bit camera shy....beautiful bird.

Where's the birdie? This one seemed to look right at me as I tried to get this shot.

Downy woodpecker at the suet feeder...

Tuesday, December 07, 2004

These two were observing from a safe distance...This in an enclosure where you could feed the parrots...

Lovely bluejay....

Favorite bird... male cardinal...what a beauty...

Friday, December 03, 2004

So adorable...they use their claws like hands sometimes to hold the (cedar) nut in place while they crack it...

At the parrot refuge in NL....
