July and August are typically months where there is a lull in the backyard bird activity – months where the temperatures are steamy hot here in the Atlanta area. But today, the temps topped out in the mid-eighties and a number of birds seemed to be waiting in the wings, so I headed outside with my camera.
A pair of Robins was the first to arrive, scarfing up food to carry back to their little ones. I never did see the babies, but I sure could hear them!
Blue Jays (of course!) also made an appearance.
My favorite visitor of the day was my handsome Red-headed Woodpecker, who made several trips to the peanut pole. You’d think I’d get used to his beauty, but alas, he still takes my breath away.
Always nice when a weekend holds a bit of time with beauty.
