World Bird Wednesday XIX



Wow... I can't believe another week has passed by and it is World Bird Wednesday again. Where does the time go?

I spent a great deal of time since the last WBW staking out the hummingbird feeder hoping to see the first Ruby-throated flier of the year. I haven't see one yet, but it is just a matter of time.

The birds in my backyard seemed to have paired off. I have seen pairs of Doves, Chickadees, Cardinals, Wrens and Woodpeckers around. Here are a few pictures of my backyard birds that came in while I was scoping out the Hummingbird feeder.

Mourning Doves
















Slick looking like devil was feeding like crazy the past few days.

Getting his color back



















Couldn't get the chickadees to stay still. They have way too much energy right now.

Hungry
















A little bit like abstract art.
