New Red Bellied Arrivals

Well, the Red Bellied juveniles have started to get 'their wings' so to speak. They have been out and about, getting fed by their parents and beginning to figure things out. It is different seeing them with their colorful parents as their are without color in their juvenile plumage.

I hope to get more pics of these little ones are they begin to get the hang of the suet feeders.

Good Birding and God Bless!

A Little Bit of Color This Morning

I woke up to a very nice surprise this morning. It was a 1st Spring Male Tanager. This young male is just starting to get his color after his first winter.

His color is beginning change over the bright orange-red that Tanagers are known for. This visit was especially nice for me because it was a Lifer because I'd never seen a young male before.

He seemed to like the suet in the feeder as he came back later on the day to get a few more bites!

Good birding and God Bless!

And The Winner Is . . . Brown Thrasher!!! And on Mother's Day, How Fitting!

This year's first juveniles were Brown Thrashers. I thought this was especially fitting that this years first additions were seen on Mother's Day.

This picture is a little grainy as it is a little bit dark and rainy here, as you can see. Happy Mother's Day!

Good birding and God Bless!

Flurry Of The Grosbeaks

I've had a lot of Rose Breasted Grosbeaks in my yard today. The weather must have driven them in. Several males and females were at the feeder for hours today.

The Time Finally Came

As far as blogging goes, I would probably win an award for the worst blogger of the year. As anyone who did follow this blog knows, I haven't been very regular.

That being said, I would like to follow up on the last post I did make from last summer. The little one in the nest turned out to be two! There was a much anticipated flurry of activity once they got their wings.

They didn't take long getting the 'hang' of eating on the suet log. Mom and Dad took their turns showing them how it was down.

It was very different seeing the juvenile without any coloration to distinguish it as a male or female. They stayed around for several weeks, feeding on the suet log.

I did also have at least two, maybe three Red-Head Juveniles last summer also. Hopefully, I'll get those pics up soon!
