Back To The Bathroom

Another rainy day here in Georgia, which could only mean one thing for me – back to the bathroom!  If you happened to read my previous post, you’ll know that the last time it rained I turned my bathroom window into a makeshift bird blind.  Today, I was hoggin’ the stall once again.

Despite the drizzle (which was a rather lovely spring shower) there was quite a bit of activity in the backyard.  Some birds came for food, while others seemed content to sit on the branches and let their feathers get a gentle soaking.

Here, for your viewing pleasure, are several that showed up.

Carolina Chickadee


Red-bellied Woodpecker (male)
(This particular fellow always has one section of
red sticking up on his head!)



Brown-headed Nuthatch


Northern Cardinal (male)
(Sorry the first photo has an intrusive twig – I’m not much
for post processing pictures)




Eastern Bluebird (male)


Red-winged Blackbird (male)
(The red on his wing is not displayed because
there was no one to fight with or flirt with!)


Yellow-rumped Warbler
(Poor fellow is getting soaked, but he doesn’t seem to mind)



 All in all, another lovely afternoon spent in the bathroom!

    That’s so cool Kathy, Bathroom Birding, that’s a whole new concept. Your a pioneer! Wonderful pics there is no doubt!

  3. I think you should patent your “Bathroom Bird Blind” idea! 🙂 Can’t wait to hear the first red-winged blackbird hereabouts because for me that is the one reliable sign that Spring has finally come. Probably at least another month to go, though.

      Our Red-winged Blackbirds started showing up a week or so ago. To me, it sounds like they sit in the branches and say, “Over heeere.” Out of curiosity, where is home for you?

      • I’m in a suburb of NYC, so we’re Zone 7; in a normal winter we are 7b, but lately it’s been more like between 6b and 7a! The redwing sounds like “oh-ka-LEEEE” to me but that’s probably because I read Peterson at an early age, LOL

    It has to be such a joy to live somewhere where you can see all these amazing birds. The woodpecker has my heart today, though as always they all are beautiful.❀

      It’s funny. We live in the suburbs outside of Atlanta, but the builder of our neighborhood left a lot of large trees, so we get a nice amount of birds. I am so thankful for that. 🙂
