My original plan for today had been to head back to Red Top Mountain so Tucker could romp in the lake, but my back decided to go into a bit of a spasm so I opted for a back-up plan instead. I went out to the back deck and sat by back-side down in a rocking chair and waited to see which backyard birds would show up.
A Tufted Titmouse made an appearance, as did an American Goldfinch in its faded fall plumage.
A Downy Woodpecker and a Carolina Chickadee also dropped in.
My favorite visitor of the afternoon was this handsome male Pine Warbler. Isn’t his coloring gorgeous?
All in all, not bad for a back-up plan. 🙂
