I fully intended to make today's post about something else entirely, but there were so many birds around today, I couldn't resist. I love the chickadees. They don't sit still for long, so it's sometimes difficult to get a good picture. I love the beautiful flashes of red when cardinals fly through the woods. A female cardinal. This one seemed to be posing for me. I couldn't decide which picture I liked better, so I decided to post both of them. Goldfinch - another one of my favorites. I love the quizzical expression on this one. The tube feeder is a popular hangout. Back by popular demand - the titmouse! There were so many of them today! “What's a leaf doing on this tree in the dead of winter?” EXTREME CLOSEUP!
