Windowpane Wednesday: For The Birds

For the past few weeks, we have had very few birds in our yard. My friend, Donna, has noticed the same thing at her house.

But, yesterday…. we had lots of bird activity.  Sundae alerted me to that fact by ‘chattering’ at them from her window seat.

First, a bold red male cardinal:

He was trying out the different feeders:

I needed help identifying this next bird.  A quick message, including a photo, to Donna (a self-proclaimed ‘bird nerd’), and I learned that this is a tufted titmouse. Such beautiful muted colors – quite the contrast from the bright red cardinal. I made this colorful butterfly/bee bath (from a terra cotta flower pot and saucer) at the beginning of summer.

When I uploaded this picture, I immediately thought: “bird cage”.  This is a cage we put around our climbing yellow rose bush to help protect it from the deer. The orange flowers in the background are ‘orphan’ zinnias I rescued from Lowe’s.

And, finally, my favorite, the bluebird. By the way, my Motor Man took this picture.  All of these were taken through our bedroom windows.

Motor Man, Sundae and I all enjoy bird-watching and we’re  so glad our feathered friends have returned.

  1. We have the reverse issue here with bird visitors – more than usual! I think birds may know something we don’t know about the weather. “Gather ye rosebuds (or bird food) while ye may” as changes are coming.

  2. What a treat to see birds! Magnificent captures!
    I have so few, I just noticed when I heard ONE bird call.
    So lovely you are sharing your pictures!!

  3. Those are great photos. I think I need to get a bird feeder. We had one years ago and it attracted Nanday Conures, sometimes as many as two dozen at one time. It was pretty cool to see.

  4. That’s a lot of activity recently ..! Sibs usually alerts me when something birdy is going on outside … ; )

  5. What beautiful avian visitors you have! I hope they will be staying a while, and that Sundae doesn’t put them off.

  6. I LOVE the Bluebird too! We’ve not had a decrease in birds – unless you count the two (2) that flew into my picture window in the kitchen while fleeing a hawk. Unfortunately, they both died and the hawk had supper. I know that’s nature, but it saddened me. It also startled me because I was working in front of the window.
