Caught In The Act


I've been enjoying the return of the hummingbirds as they start to visit my feeders. 





But, I got a surprise when I looked out the window . . .

There he was . . . a red-bellied woodpecker drinking out of one of my hummingbird feeder. 




I just had to get a pic of this guy. 



Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

In the Birdhouses #3

I started this series of posts (In the Birdhouses) last spring and decided to continue this year.

We have a pair of Eastern Bluebirds that are nesting in one of our birdhouses. 





The bluebird house is about 3 feet from the branch where I took this pic. I had to sit very still to get this pic. 





Although we haven't been able to see any nestlings, both the male and female are bringing food to the nest.  You can see the cricket in his mouth that he is taking in to the nest. 





Their spring and summer diet mostly consists of crickets, grasshoppers, katydids, beetles, earthworms and snails.

Thanks for stopping by, I'll try to get some more pics soon of the bluebirds - Judy.
