My Backyard Breakfast Club

I know The Breakfast Club was a popular movie back in my younger years, but it is also an everyday experience in my backyard.  Here are a handful of the club members that showed up yesterday morning to enjoy a bite to eat.


American Robin


Carolina Wren – popping in for a peanut.

female red-bellied

Red-bellied Woodpecker – female

blue jay

Blue Jay – grabbing his usual fare.


Brown-headed Nuthatch – at the beverage station.

Oh, what the heck, let’s make it two handfuls…here are five more.

pine warbler

Pine Warbler


Brown Thrasher – of the order of the perpetually muddy beak.

male red-bellied

Red-bellied Woodpecker – male


Downy Woodpecker – male


Eastern Bluebird – sporting a mealworm mustache.

The bright morning light made it hard to avoid glare and shadows, but hey, you will never hear me complaining about the sunshine!

    Beautiful close ups Kathy, all well posed for your patient waiting. Interesting that the red Bellied Woodpecker has a red head and not much evidence of a red belly?

      He has a reddish tint on his tummy, but unfortunately for him, there is another woodpecker in these parts that has a solid red head and had already claimed the name!
