Sustenance After the Storm

The birds have made themselves visible with the fall of the leaves and the arrival, like a big cruise ship, of a cold weather front. I need to up my game on getting better focus instead of just snapping photos while my teeth chatter...but these are the lazy woman's collection which will have to suffice for now.
The lyrical wren.
The noisy shushing nuthatch.
The hypocritical robin...He put that there, I do not know why he pretends to be surprised.
The thirsty brother.
The robins came in waves and proceeded to overwhelm the water dish leaving behind a dark ring of calling cards all over the deck.  Yuck!

Oooo! Lovely shots! I love that wren. So puffy and fluffy. Gorgeous! :)

I had to add a few more pics to my bird post because I finally caught a red breasted nuthatch at our feeder. Woohoo!

I must begin birdwatching in earnest.

If these a lazy woman shots, then continue to be lazy. They are wonderful!

Bijoux said...

Gorgeous shots. Your robins seem to be skinnier than ours.

Joanne Noragon said...

Yes, skinnier robins. The wren has a rosier breast than the little wrens who build nests in all our feeders, not to mention a few convenient nooks and crannies around the house. Are the leaves reflecting?

Joanne Noragon said...

Woops--buuild nests in all our bird houses...

Brian Miller said...

Migration time is so much fun! We have some robins that stay all winter. We always get robins in our Christmas bird count.

Love the surprised robin lol. They are gone from here but the nuthatches, the chickadees, lots of finches, and a big red-bellied woodpecker are all vying for space at the feeder.
