Mocking Bird at the pond.

Red-bellied Woodpecker at the pond.

These are some of the birds I've been observing this month. The picture quality isn't very good, but hopefully they're good enough for ID purposes. We finally had a first visit of the year by a Junco! I imagine that the Harris Sparrows and White-crown's shouldn't be far behind. They usually begin to show up in colder weather. It was a cold, windy, rainy November day today (35 mph winds) that should bring them :-) We have a pair of Red-breasted Nuthatches (lifers for me) that began visiting last week. I'll probably not post again until after Thanksgiving. Take time to be thankful to God for all your blessings as you enjoy Thanksgiving with your family!

Have a HaPpY ThAnKsGiViNg!!

Aw, these are wonderful! I miss seeing all the chickadees and nuthatches and tufted titmice... we don't feed anymore because the squirrels are such pains in the neck!

I saw my first Red Breasted Nuthatch on Christmas Day last year - and haven't seen another since. It was a Great present!
Hope you have a Wonderful Thanksgiving... there are so many things to be thankful for!!

I love your photos and all those sweet babies feeding, thank you for posting, you have quite a variety of birds. I have hubby going to the farmers market for more seed today. I feed them organic shelled sunflowers seeds. My yard birds are so spoiled, one day hubby brought non-shelled seeds... the birds came to the window tapping on the glass as if to say..."Hey! We thought this was the Regency? Where's the good stuff. They wanted the already shelled seed. Got to keep those littleones fat this winter. I adore the Wren, Chickadee, nuthatch and the Titmouse, I watch them take one seed at a time, fly off to the tree, eat it and come back. I think they burn more energy flying back and forth. But they are well mannered birds, they do not sit on the feeder and empty it all in one sitting.
Happy Thanksgiving,

Thanks for visiting my blog, I enjoyed all of your bird photos also. The red breasted nuthatch is my favorite bird that visits the feeder.
