No Doubt It’s The Drought – Part II

As I said in yesterday’s post, we are in the midst of quite a drought here in the south. Although the lack of rain has cast a bit of a gray cloud on the area, the increase in backyard bird activity is a definite silver lining!

Here are a dozen more birds that have stopped by to wet their feathers and quench their thirst. Let’s do six at at time, shall we?

Female Northern Cardinal
Male Northern Cardinal
Female Downy Woodpecker
White-throated Sparrow
Blue Jay
Hermit Thrush

Insert brief intermission…and now for the second half dozen…

Male House Finch
Male Red-bellied Woodpecker
Brown-headed Nuthatch
Carolina Chickadee
Female Eastern Towhee
Male Eastern Towhee

I think the Chickadee might be my favorite picture, mostly because of the curled up leaf, but when I see the female Towhee, it makes me want a sweater in every one of her colors!

I am praying for a lovely rain to head our way soon (especially since we have so many wildfires flaring up) but in the meantime, I will enjoy the blessing of the extra birds.

  2. so many greats again! I especially love the chickadee too – the angle of the edge of the water and the leaf all add to the striking beauty of the whole photo! Nice job!

  3. What a wonderful collection of beautiful birds! The Carolina Chickadee image is special…it’s like he’s giving a speech at a lake front in the fall 🙂
