At least the sun is shining in these photos.
Okay, so I will start off with the cheeky one again. I don't think it's an opinion!
I have a direct line of sight to them all from where I sit when using my laptop. There was a Carolina Wren out there a few moments ago, but I only saw it on the deck and not the rail. Here's hoping that was his first stop and I just missed it.
Yes, I still think you are adorable!
A female Cardinal close-up, and definitely checking the camera out!
Her mate next photo.
One of the many reasons I enjoy this outside camera, it picks up the most interesting sights. For instance, the Cardinal in flight.
Next, we have a male House Finch. He seems to be getting along with the Mourning Doves.
I do like to look at the feathers up-close, so pretty!
A few more joined in.
The White-throated sparrow was a surprise. I haven't seen any sparrows in a long time, let alone a White-throated. It came back for several days, always on its own.
I thought this one might be a Goldfinch, but then those that I have seen online don't appear to have that little white eye rim. Any ideas? Anyhow, it appears to have moved on also. Fun for a while to see this little bird.

Martha Ellen asked what kind of birdseed we use, and I thought I would take a photo and put it below. I am not sure where it came from as Gregg brought it home on a solo errand run some time ago. I will ask him next chance I get as the bag is almost empty. Thanks for asking Martha Ellen.
And thank you for visiting today's feathered friends. I appreciate all your comments. I sometimes forget to mention that, but they are always very welcomed and enjoyable to read.
Have a great weekend everyone!
I love them all!! The Cardinal seem to be flying with food in his beak!ReplyDelete
Thank you Ginny and yes he is :)Delete
Wonderful images! The cardinal in flight is a treasure. Look up pine warbler and see if that's your bird.ReplyDelete
Thanks Linda, I will :)Delete
Denise these capture are lovely. Again I love the male Cardinal.ReplyDelete
Was watching Planet Earth and low and behold we were shown a Vampire Finch which I'd never heard of before, interesting.
That’s fascinating about the Vampire Finch, I have never heard of them. Thanks for the info Margaret, I will check that out :)Delete
Your railing sure gets busy with visitors. How fun to watch them all. I enjoy watching the squirrels too but they can clean out the bird seed in no time.ReplyDelete
Hi Anne, they certainly get greedy but I am happy to say the birds get their fair share and seem to be feeding more than the squirrels lately :)Delete
Amazing captures, especially the group shot and the Cardinal in flight.ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed Sandi, thank you :)Delete
You see a great variety of birds in your yard. It is a great idea to line the deck railing with the bird food and the bird cam capturing all the pretty birds. Take care, have a great day and a happy weekend.
Thank you Eileen, it is a good spot to locate the camera :) Wishing you the same for the weekend.Delete
Love 'em all. You know my passion is for the birds (Pun intended)! Yes, that is definitely an American Goldfinch in winter plumage.ReplyDelete
My son in Houston will love that first squirrel butt (he feeds his brood every day)
Smiling Anni and yes I do know :) Thanks so much for the ID. Great to hear your son in Houston is a fellow squirrel lover.Delete
they are all super fantastic, my favorite is the two doves with the finch. I like doves, they make me feel good and I love their cooingReplyDelete
Thanks Sandra :) I like them too, especially when they are cooing :)Delete
Thank you R’s Rue :)Delete
Cool idea to have a live camera trained on one spot. If I were to do that, I am not sure what I would see. LOL.ReplyDelete
Now you have got my attention Gigi, lol!Delete
I love how you do your seed -- and you have a perfect view for your photos!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jeanie, better than TV on a busy bird day :)Delete
Denise, I am in awe over that male cardinal in flight! It is fantastic! My husband enjoyed seeing it as well. We both are bird nuts. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of seed do your feathered friends prefer? We buy our seed at BJ's in a 40 pound bag. I'm seeing something yummy in your seeds that we don't offer.ReplyDelete
That’s great Martha Ellen, so happy you and your husband enjoyed :) I will take a look at the bag of seed I have in the morning and let you know. I keep it secured in our garage. All tucked up for the night right now, and the kind of mixture escapes me but I will pop on over to your blog tomorrow with the information :)Delete
Thank you so much for your information, Denise. The photo of the bag will help us a lot! You are so kind to share your secrets with us. Every time I see your field cam I realize we need one! Thank you for coming over today on my blog. I've really been neglecting it lately. Have a nice weekend!Delete
You are very welcome Martha Ellen :) Blogging friends have been so kind to me when sharing their knowledge, that I like to pay that forward. I have written a post about the type of bird cam I use also. It is set to be posted next Wednesday.Delete
More great closeups!ReplyDelete
Thank you Christine :)Delete
This allows you to get photos you wouldn't get in person. The squirrel is adorable.ReplyDelete
It does and I love it :) He is adorable, I agree :)Delete
Love the squirrel and male cardinal pictures!ReplyDelete
Happy you enjoy Linda, thank you :)Delete
What fun it is to sit and be at computer and have all that wildlife to watch! If not for the starlings I would have something almost as good.ReplyDelete
If you get bored, go on youtube and look up ChooChoo's Story...it is a lot about chipmunks...they are just adorable. I would put a video on my blog but the short ones are 5 or 6 minutes long. Chucky was the first one...I think 2018 was when they first made friends with her. I think she is still coming.
Hi Rose, I haven’t seen any starlings around in a long time. They wipe out the feeders faster than the squirrels! :)Delete
Thank you for the name of this YouTube. I always love what you have to share on your blog and I will go over there to check out their videos. Appreciate you letting me know about them. I love those chipmunks as much as I do the squirrels.
These are such a pleasure to see Denise, I enjoy them immensely.ReplyDelete
Have a good weekend.
All the best Jan
I am happy you enjoy them Jan :) Thank you and I wish you the same.Delete
You are making me think I need a game camera.ReplyDelete
I thoroughly recommend them Ellen, they are so much fun :)Delete
Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos.
I especially loved the first photo, it's so cute and the photo of Cardinal flying.
Have a great weekend
Hi Maria, you are very welcome and so happy you enjoyed :) Thank you!Delete
goldfinches change clothes for winter. i think your mystery bird is a goldfinch, dressed for winter!! you are getting a nice variety of birds, i have missed seeing mine since my tree trimmers trimmed their favorite trees...i have not been taking pictures, but i still feed them!!ReplyDelete
beautiful captures from the bird cam!!
Thank you Debbie, for the ID too :) We have noticed a difference since having our two trees cut down.Delete
This was a brilliant idea to add a camera to this feeding table. I think I would be sitting there all day watching the birds. Great shots. Have a great week ahead.ReplyDelete
Thanks Margaret, I love having this bird cam :) You have a great weekend too!Delete
The bird watching obviously provides a lot of entertainment, Denise, especially from the cheeky squirrel. I wondered if the birds tolerate the intrusion.ReplyDelete
It certainly does Dorothy :) They usually fly away when squirrel turns up. It is an interesting dynamic with most of the tiny birds. The only ones I have seen chase others off is the Blue Jay, but since our trees were cut down, we don't see them quite as often.Delete
