I feel like I have been on a picture-taking pause for the last several weeks, so this morning I decided to remedy and reverse that, by pausing to take some pictures!
When I got outside, the Blue Jays were as busy as ever, packing away peanut after peanut.
The Finches were perched, posing, and looking oh so pretty – both the Goldfinch…
…and the House Finch.
A pair of Catbirds was coming and going, quickly carrying food away to some little ones they were keeping concealed. (I think we should call their babies “kittens”!)
And my resident Red-head was looking stunning, as always.
By far the friendliest visitor of the morning was the Brown-headed Nuthatch. He would fly from one branch…
…and then land on another. Sometimes he would grab a bite of food, and other times it seemed like he just wanted to visit.
It was such a treat to get out and enjoy the backyard bird beauty.

Thank you for posting again, Kathy. We have missed you & your beautiful backyard neighbors.
Awww they are all beautiful, but that little nuthatch is adorable. We have similar activity with bluejays and goldfinches.
Nuthatches are special to me…they are the bird my Dad would be if he were a bird!
Amazing photos! And birds are a tough one to photograph too. Thanks so much for sharing these. I enjoyed this impromptu trip into nature.
Thank you so much!
I can assure you your picture-taking pause was as much a treat for us as it was for you, Kathy. The colours and the action is simply spectacular!
Thanks for the kind words!
What a joy to see!
