More Birds And Some Squirrels…

birdsSaw this bird in the yard and I’ve never seen one like it before. It looks like some kind of dove, but I can’t figure it out! If anyone knows what this is, I’d love to know.

Where is everybody?

What’s going on in there?

Well, hello!

And another either saying grace, plotting and scheming, or eating. Ha!

I have a couple of window bird feeders and also throw seed into the yard. The birds I see the most on the feeders are Carolina Chickadees and Tufted Titmice (I think…any birders out there- please feel free to correct me!). Lately, I’ve seen what I think are Dark-Eyed Junco in the yard. I’ve actually had a woodpecker come to the feeder two or three times, but didn’t have my camera handy. I love watching the birds!
