With mating season upon us, the fellas have been sporting their finest feathers, whether it’s radiant red…
…or gleaming gold…
…or a little bit of both with a background of black.
Not only are they dressed to impress, but they are a wee bit more aggressive than usual. It is not uncommon to see one perched in his fighter pilot pose, ready to ward off unwanted intruders.
Of course, there are a few who are clearly lovers and not fighters. Take this industrious Nuthatch for example – he made trip after trip to the peanut feeder…
…and then flew to a secluded, romantic (and hard to photograph!) branch to bring the object of his affections a love offering of food.
Never a dull moment in the backyard these days!

They’re all looking smart. I particularly like the nuthatches!
The nuthatches are fun to watch!
Ahh, this is so nice … I love the lovers, not the fighters but all are stunning photos of beautiful birds.
I like the lovers too. 🙂
Mr. Robin is looking especially dapper!! ❤️ He looks different than the variety we get here in the Pacific NW. 😃
Beautiful pics of your birds Kathie!
They all look well nourished by your self- serve restaurant. It is one way of ensuring you get great shots.
They are definitely well-nourished! I guess it’s a win-win!
All so sweet, thank you Donna, for startng my day off with a smile.
Aahh, to be a bird! 😇
Thank you for sharing; I just love your bird photos.
Great pictures, Kathy! Love the last, romantic one in particular.
These little nuthatches are true Casanovas!
