I believe this beautiful little birdie is a Purple Finch. I've seen maybe one or two over the last three years. It isn't a great shot by any means but I was thrilled to at least get a picture of it before it flew away.
She's nesting in the rafters of our gazebo. I hope we'll be able to record the happenings in the nest.
You gotta love the pose of this little guy! I think he's a White-throated Sparrow but I'm not a hundred percent sure. I've only been bird watching seriously for about a year so I still have lots to learn to be able to identify some of my feathered friends. If you know what he is tell me in the comments. Hubs thinks he looks like a little hawk from the back. You think he pretends to the ladies?
A Red-Bellied Woodpecker grabs some corn and off he goes. I've seen him on more than one occasion eat a few bites, grab a kernel, hop up the oak tree and then fly across the adjoining field with his treasure.
Hope you enjoyed the birds here Round The Bend. They aren't nearly as scary as the Hitchcock kind! :)
