Garden Tuesday ~More Birdies

Downy Woodpecker Sidewalk Shoes

I believe this is a downy woodpecker.  He comes to the feeder, snatches a seed and then flies off to the nearest tree to crack it open.

Goldfinch Sidewalk Shoes

I love our goldfinches!!

I do so wish I had a better telephoto lens. 

How is your garden doing this week?

Please join me for Garden Tuesday.

When I see birds I long for that big white lens:)

I just sent a link to your wine reviews to my DD vising the US:)
Thank you:)

Sorry, I've been awol! I haven't enjoyed gardening as much this year as in the past.

Goldfinches are a favorite bird of mine. I was really upset this week when our cat caught and killed one, and then played with it in front of the kids. :(

Oh my goodness -- I love your birdie photos. Just gorgeous.

Beautiful pictures. I love to bird watch and am grateful that my bedroom sits high in the trees. Your camera does a great job catching the color of the green and the vibrancy of the birds.

Gorgeous photo's! Let's see - our garden ...herbs are dead from too much heat; pomegranates are splitting ...same reason but holy cow, the Mexican limes are ready. Here come the margaritas!

These photos are amazing! I wish we had the birdies here. Beautiful goldfinches.

Nice birdies. Nice of you to provide entertainment for the kittycats, watching the bird feeder.

Kat said...

Your photos of the finches are awesome.

I love the birds. Your birds are beautiful. This morning I saw that our American Goldfinches are already getting their olive drab feathers. And for the first time in Oregon, I saw a Stellar's Jay at my feeder. More to come?

I thought that those came out pretty well. What kind of lens do you shoot for these? I only have a basic 55-200mm for long distance. When I see those serious outdoor photogs with their major glass collection, I get green with envy.
