Mocking Jay

I refilled the feeders (and branches) this morning, and then sat back to watch my very own Hunger Games.

The Mockingbird was the first to arrive, grabbing both food and beverage…

The Red-bellied Woodpecker started off upside down…maybe no coffee yet?…

It was a delightful way to start the weekend. Β And speaking of weekends, when it comes to yours being delightful, “May the odds be ever in your favor!”

    These are so beautiful pictures!
    They’ve inspired me to try to paint them. Would you mind if I post my drawings/paintings of some of your pictures at my blog (https://doityourself88.wordpress.com/) ? (I would link them to these pictures).
