Carolina Wren Serenade

I got a few shots of this Carolina Wren late this afternoon as it was singing outside my window. He (or she) was full of life, singing and chirping loudly for several minutes.

These little birds are fun to watch. They are 'busy bodies' for sure. Always on the move and not still often to get any good pics. But not today, as it was 'still' for several minutes allowing me to get a few pics.

Good Birding and God Bless!

Lake Monticello Flycatching

I did a little birdwatching this weekend at Lake Monticello on Saturday morning. I saw several flycatchers: an Eastern Kingbird, several Barn Swallows, and a few Scissor-Tailed Flycatchers.

I went back later in the afternoon and saw this Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher. He was perched next to the road and stayed there several minutes, almost posing. I was able to get several good shots and thought I share them!

Update: I went back and looked at this photo a little closer and I now believe that this is indeed a juvenile. The tail is not as long as it should be for an adult. The underparts are not the 'salmon-pink' color that an adult would have.

Good Birding and God Bless.

Hey Mom, Look What I Found!

The juvenile Red Bellied Woodpecker activity has been in full effect in my backyard this weekend. I've identified two juveniles after the recent departure from their nest. The adults are feeding the juveniles regularly from the suet and peanuts out of the feeder.

Today one of the juveniles made his way down to the top of the feeder to find out what it had to offer. They have not been able to get the hang of coordinated flight to get on the suet log or peanut feeder just yet!

I also noticed while taking these pictures that this juvenile has started to get a little red tinge of color on the crown of his head. Guess that this juveniles turns out to be a little baby boy!

Thanks for visiting! Good Birding and God Bless.
