Thank you Vic, the chickadee is brownish gray, the green is reflected from the tree. Smiling

Oh, I'm really enjoying your photo's! I especially like seeing birds that we don't have in our area. We have the common Blue Jay down this way but not that beautiful Stellar's Jay and I've never seen a PIne Grosbeak either. We sometimes see Cedar Waxwings during the winter and it's always exciting to have those beauties visiting here in the south but I've never seen the Bohemian Waxwing and it sure is a pretty one too. We have the Loggerhead Shrike down here and it looks very similar to your Northern Shrike.

Thanks Lin. The Bohemian and Cedar Waxwings are very photogenic, I have a few really nice ones to post tomorrow. I am posting the winter birds first and will follow with spring and summer. We are on a migration path so sometimes I get to see unusual birds for this area.

So many beautiful birds! I recognize some of them that live here and or migrate through here but I have never been able to get a decent picture of any of them. Yours are wonderful Thumbs up

Thank you Zany. It is not easy to get a good shot and that's for sure, some of them are in almost constant motion, drives me crazy. Grumbling

I love crows and blackbirds. Also love grackles with their blue iridescence. But your Bohemian waxwings really catch my eye, looks like they are cousins to our cardinals.

Great photos.

Oh, and I have never seen a vole. Tiny little furry disaster from what I hear.

Thank you Sharon. We don't have the Grackles here, my favorite for the iridescence is the Brewer's Blackbird, they look beautiful in the sunshine.

That vole was funny, he would come running out from behind the tree, grab some seeds and run back, did you notice the way the Slate-colored Junco is looking at him. Hilarious!

That one does make you really take a second look to see if the bird is floating with it's wings at it's side or really perched. Blinking

I have a bird feeder on the willow tree next to the shed, I can stand in the doorway and take photos from a few feet away, as long as I stand still the birds are fine with it. Big Grin

Thank you Vic. Smiling

Moles are bold little creatures, I see them quite often during the daytime in the warmer months, no doubt because I feed the birds..

I love the blue on the Stellar's Jay! We don't have them here, but we have lots of blue jays, and last week I saw the first bluebird here ever!! I have been wondering where they hide!

Y'all are gonna think I'm crazy, but a few winters ago, I fed the moles...we have mostly clay for soil, and they loosen it up so it mixes with the forest topsoil, so they are welcome here. I'd see a mole-hole and drop mealworms down it, and I could hear the mole crunching away on them. LOL

Renee, that's funny, Rolling on the floor laughing I have never heard of anyone feeding a mole or vole anything except poison bait.

Yeah, I know, I'm weird...my son say's it's in a good way, though. Hilarious! I just hate seeing creatures of any kind suffer.

Click on photo to enlarge to see the entire picture. Photographing birds can be difficult, so not all shots are perfect, but I thought they were worth showing anyway.
