Look Who Came To Dinner...
We've been feeding the birds around here. We have a lot of goldfinches, chickadees, titmouses (titmice?), cardinals, bluejays, redwing blackbirds, etc., etc., etc.
A couple of weeks ago we started seeing flickers on a regular basis, but they were usually out on the back deck on the suet cakes and that is a more difficult place to get a decent photo of them.
I had taken an old satellite dish and mounted it on the front porch rail so we could use it as a feeder and be able to watch and enjoy the birds that came up to feed. I will be posting some of those as well, but I wanted to start my bird pictures off with a bang with this beautiful flicker.
These were taken through the window with my little point and shoot Kodak Easy Share camera. I haven't, and probably won't, edited them. I'm tired of the gray skies and the cold (39 F.).
So I decided what I needed was to share some color with you all.
My next challenge is a couple of downy woodpeckers that we have coming to the suet cake in the back. I am determined to get photos of them, too.
More pictures to come, both of the birds and a spring "things are budding" walk around the place, but for today, enjoy my friend Flicker.
