The Sunday Evening Post

As I was sifting through the pictures I took this past week, I came across several that didn’t get picked to be in a post.  I didn’t want them to feel rejected, and it seemed a shame to file them away, unseen by any eyes but my own, so I decided to give them a post of their very own.

I now present ten, never before seen photos selected to star in the Sunday Evening Post!

Female Red-bellied Woodpecker.  She made several trips to the feeder, so I am thinking she has a brood of babies.

  1. What a great ten to post! They were all super.

    Always a beautiful and most enjoyable array of your birds Kathy. The Gray Catbird is interesting, as we have a Green Catbird which sounds like a cat howling or a woman in distress, but does not mimic other birds as yours does or as the other Bowerbird family do, to which it is related..

      Our Catbird mostly sounds like a cat mewing or a baby crying, but sometimes sounds like a frog croaking! The fellow in this post is still a bit shy, but I imagine he will get used to me hanging around. 🙂

    Nice set of pics! I am trying to get a Red Wing squawking and displaying his red stripes! Nice capture!

    Great shots Kathy! 🙂

  5. Beautiful photos, as always! Thanks for the side trip down memory lane to the Saturday Evening Post as well — my parents subscribed to that and to the Reader’s Digest, and I’d always try to snatch both to read first. I’d forgotten about that completely until I saw your title!

  6. So glad you gave them their ‘moment in the sun’ 🙂 I especially love the Woodpecker and the Cat Bird– thanks for sharing these beauties.
