Birds Spotted On A Beautiful Fall Day

It’s another beautiful fall day in our area. I’m hoping to get the family out to take a walk at a local park a bit later this afternoon.

Our weather’s been ping-ponging back and forth between too cold and warm, sunny days. This past Tuesday, J stayed home sick from school so I did my bird-watching from our front and backyards.

The birds were busy in the early afternoon hour!  Robins were chasing off the Bluejays. I spotted the first set of dark-eyed Juncos for the year. And watched some sparrows. And of course, heard my Carolina wren singing about it all.

I saw a small flutter in a hole high up on a tree between the yards.  Walked around the backyard so I could zoom in on the little, busy bird.  Hello, again sparrows!  Who was knocking at his door?

This red-bellied woodpecker busy looking for treats! 

This little downy woodpecker also crept pretty close to the sparrow’s front door…

A starling kept watch in the afternoon sun. 

The same afternoon sun made most my bird photo attempts look like this. 


Go check out the Bird Depot hosted by Anni of I’d Rather B Birdin’ for more (and much better than these) bird photos.

    Hello, wonderful variety of yard birds. I love the woodpeckers, they are fun to watch. I have not seen a Junco yet. Maybe soon. Have a happy day and new week ahead!

      I was super surprised to see the Juncos, just a few. Seems early but it is almost November I guess. Hope your Monday has been wonderful and you have a wonderful week!

    Sparrows get such a bum wrap all too often, and I think they’re super. As are your photos!! Great shares!
    Thanks so much for joining in with us. Fall is such a great time for birds and the beauty that surrounds us….

    Sorry I’m late…I had a visit at the ER this weekend and am now trying to catch up.
