Backyard Sightings

3 cardinals and 2 goldfinches.

2 Carolina chickadees, tufted titmouse and a goldfinch.

On my siding the other night; a cranberry blossom worm moth. Thanks to Vernon Brou for the ID!

What a wonderful back yard you have :-) Beautiful Cardinals!

I managed to get some pics of the eclipse here in Cumbria.

Season's greetings, Lana!

Its very nice to see a different colored bird besides the plethora of blackbirds that seem to making my part of town a pit stop/rest area while on their way to warmer parts of the world.

I counted 'at least' 62 Goldfinches in our feeders this morning.

Travis Cody said...

Best wishes for the new year!

Nice selection of birds at your feeders Lana. I rally like that moth too. Cranberry Blossom Worm Moth, wow!

dreamfalcon said...

It's not only the variety of birds but also the variety of feeders that you have that made me smile :-)

Larry said...

And a partridge in a pear tree- Very nice!

Neil said...

Nice photos.

Scott said...

Lana,

Great pics as per usual...love the moth especially. Thanks for sharing!

Lana Gramlich said...

Maalie; Thanks for the kind words about our backyard. :) I'll definitely be over for a look at your eclipse pix as soon as I can--thanks for the heads up! Happy New Year. :)

G; We get blackbirds here, too, but not many & not often.

Charles; Cool, baby! Thanks for counting. :)

Travis C.; Back atcha! ;)

Larry; Thank you. Evidently the moth (which migrates through our area only in Nov./Dec.,) is a real pest in N.J.

dreamfalcon, Larry & Neil; Thanks!

Scott; Anytime. Glad you enjoyed. :)

Love those cardinals! We have them all year, but the male's bright red is especially appealing amid the drabness of winter.

NatureFootstep said...

that´s a nice feeder. But it would not work here. It would quickly be covered with snow. :)

Wish I had backyard birds like that.

I do like those beautiful Cardinals. Unfortunately I'm bummed out on this subject as after returning from a week with the grandkids in Colorado, I found all my birdfeeders buried under a foot of snow... AND all the birds long gone. Zilch Not a one remained behind. I think they all fled south to Louisiana.

Wonderful bird feeding pic! I can watch then for hours! Nice moth too!

Halcyon said...

Such cute little friends! I hope my birds back home in Jackson haven't gone hungry while we've been away.

Lana Gramlich said...

Marvin; Yes, the cardinals are very nice to have. :)

NatureFootstep; Thanks. Our climate is so wet & humid that sometimes seeds start growing in the trays!

troutbirder; Just start feeding the birds again. They'll be back. ;)

letspaintnature; Thanks, hon.

Halcyon; Our non-tray feeders typically hold enough seed to keep the birds happy for a few days (at least,) when we go away.

We're covered in snow here in Ottawa. I see the odd flash of blue from the blue jays that are still around. I miss the glorious red of the cardinal though. Wonderful photos, Lana

Lana Gramlich said...

PhotoDiction; Thank you. I'll take good care of your migrants 'til Spring. ;)
