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.

Love the first one of the robin – with the sun on its chest. Hope your grandchild doing well.
I like that one too. And my new little grandbaby is a blessing for sure!
They certainly donned their Sunday best when they came visiting!
That woodpecker is amazing!!
Lots of beautiful birds. Seems the ones here are taking a summer break.
