Snow Day Visitors

Portraits of some welcome visitors who were hanging around the back yard on a snow day this week.

Some shots were taken from the usual kitchen window vantage. Others were shot from the back patio after feeder(s) re-filling.

Nice shots!
Seem to be fewer bluejays this year out this way. Glad you have one.

They are so beautiful. Perfect background. I agree with possum I've noticed fewer Blue Jays in our area, also the ones I have seen seem to stay higher in the trees.

Snow-loving birds should be happy up here in the next week or so. More snow coming.

Those jays don't pose as well as some. I enjoy filling the feeders and sitting in a blind to watch them.

Hi folks, glad you all enjoyed this collage of the welcome visitors - cardinals, junco, white-throated sparrow, and bluejay. WHile the bluejay is the least friendly and sharing, I prefer seeing these to the unwelcome starlings, blackbirds, and cowbirds.

The collages are fun to do in Picasa, which is a free download for anyone else who wants to have some fun.

Welcome Ginny, glad Sandra sent you here for a visit - come back anytime! Same for you Snapper II, and thanks for the comments too.

Yes Daisy and Christer, the red male cardinal is MY favorite too.

Beatrice your kitchen window birds are so pretty. When you have a view like that it makes the kitchen chores go faster. Happy Valentine's Day!
Grenville, thanks for following my blog!

Hi Mama-Bug, the kitchen windows DO come in handy for bird watching, but I never seem to get any chores done when watching with m ycamera:-( Thanks for stopping by.
