Sunday Stills -- Birds

This week our Suday Stills was all about Birds, I am sure since it was so cold this week, the birds were hibernating somewhere warm, I did see a Snowy Owl a couple times, but not till after he saw me so no pics of them.  But we do have these little birds all year round in the lilacs and got a couple good shots of them.





Our calf shed also has pigeons in it all year and yesterday they braved the cold and come and sat on top for a bit.

And since I didn't get any exciting birds, I got this:

is better than:

Have a Great Sunday all.  For more go to Sunday Stills.

I like the bird apartment! We have pigeons here too but they wouldn't stay in the same place to get any sort of shot at them.

That's funny- a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
Do you know what kind of bird that is in the second photo?

I have no idea what any of those little birds are, I kinda thought they all were sparrows till I got inside and made them bigger, I will try to find out in my bird book though.

Nice photos ! I have a Blue Jay figurine as well ! Some of your birds there are Chickadees and House Sparrows but the first two photos I cant tell I also will have to look in my bird book ! Have a wonderful evening !

I looked through my Smithsonian Feild Guide of birds and couldn't find anything that looked like the first two photos ! They do look like a Hybrid of Chickadee and Sparrow ! Let me know please if you can Identify them . Thanks !

You cracked me up! I have a bird theme Christmas tree & collected many different types of birds (and bird houses) over the years. I thought about taking pics of those, but not sticking them in a tree outdoor - too funny!

Good shots, the third photo is my fav!!
