Hi Andrea Those 2 shots of the Starling are brilliant. They sure know how to keep warm Love all the other shots as well.
aren't they cute!
Hello Andrea, a great variety of birds. I like them all especially the last shot of the Hawk! Have a great day!
This is not a hawk ... it just looks like one because of it's coloring. It is a first year juvenile Eagle. Glad you like her ... I though she was pretty speceial too.Andrea
It does look cold but the birds cope with it.
Really amazing wildlife photography.MersadMersad Donko Photography
How very, very beautiful.Love the 'spangles' on the first bird. Which is?
Just a common, ordinary Starling ... who are often under appreciated for their beauty. I sometimes get an irridescent green coloring in their feathers as well. I really like them, especially in the winter. In the summer and fall they come in big flocks and eat me out of bird house and home ... :)Andrea
Love that speckled fluff!
This is such a great post and I quite enjoyed viewing each of your lovely entries Andrea. I think Starlings are really beautiful in and then all of your other yard visitors and you having the opportunity to help them with their meals, all very rewarding indeed. The Eagle is the frosting on the cake ;) ~
I love your bird photos, Andrea. All these beautiful critters are in my yard too except for the eagle. I've never seen one in these parts. Or anywhere else in the wild for that matter. I think the starlings are beautiful too. I think I saw a pine siskin a few days ago, but it might have been a young finch. I'm not sure. Either way, I wasn't quick enough with my camera.It's still wicked cold here, so I guess I'm going to spend most of the winter indoors. In a way it is good because I'm forced to deal with some of my indoor projects that need doing. Such as finishing the kitchen project and re-organizing the pantry. I suppose there's a good side to bad weather.I've made a good dent in the kitchen project so I'll spend today trying to get a lot of it done. Gosh, I'd rather be frolicking in the warm sunshine. Sighhhhhhh. You have a wonderful day and stay warm. Hugs, Edna B.
Beautiful collection of wintry birds! Makes me want to wrap up in a blanket! Great photos!
Nice shots of some cold birds.
Nice bird shots. I like "fluffy" and chubby birds.
Love the little starlings...and the later photos of the black and white birds(junco?)
