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!!

    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. :(

    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!

    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.
