At the Feeders and in the Trees - Week 30

I am thankful that the temperatures have been a bit cooler in our area making it enjoyable to be outside. Watering has been a must in my gardens.

The Red-bellied Woodpecker visits our suet feeders most days of the week. I have photographed him many times but I love this particular pic.

What I love about this pic is the distinctness of his face and eye.

The Carolina Chickadee is always so fun to watch at our feeders.

I had a few sunflowers come up in a flower pot close to the feeders and have been waiting to capture the Goldfinches eating the seeds. 

The Tufted Titmouse is a year-round visit in our area. He is a slate gray bird with a white chest and belly but you have to notice his pointed crest. 

Have a great day - Judy.

  1. Hi Judy, you always capture such great shots of these little feathered beings. Love the finches feeding on sunflower’s seeds. We’ve been enjoying the hummingbird feeder where there are many feuds! They are entertaining. Still hot and humid here so watering is done early morning or late evening. Happy weekend........

  2. That is an excellent woodpecker portrait!
    Love goldfinch on sunflower photos, too
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Hello Judy, beautiful flowers and birds. I love the closeups of the red-belly woodie. The goldfinch on the sunflower is beautiful. Great post and photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  4. Great critter close ups. That first shot of the lovely purple flower with the butterfly and bees is awesome.

  5. By extension, the critters have truly benefited from the watering … they need those plants in your garden! I especially liked the finch on the sunflower - I look forward to more of those photos as they dig in to the seed heads!

  6. Beautiful photos of some of my favorites!
