Waking Up...

What a strange week it has been - I was really so anxious about the election, and it went exactly the way I had hoped, but had been afraid to believe; it still seems a little surreal. I've mostly stayed home - had lots of "visitors" - here are a few of them..

Amazing photos ... and a perfect illustration of why there is no reason to leave home.

Can't believe you still have bluebirds.
And we still have our Obama.

Wow, you had a lot of visitors. These are amazing, as usual. I was a little afraid to hope too but I'm glad it turned out the way it did too. :-)

Eve said...

You have so many beautiful birds Helen. Do you know what sparrow that is?

June said...

I'm envious of your late season visitors...we have none to speak of and miss them!

T and S said...

WOW...what a gorgeous series of birds. The eye contact in the first image is my pick of this series...Thomas

Thank you for sharing your beautiful birds.

It has seemed strange this week, hasn't it? My husband mentioned that it felt just like Christmas. I agree.

What a great group of pictures. A perfect time for photos. There are still enough leaves to add color to the background, but not so many that they hide the birds. I wonder if that goldfinch is eating the cleome seed. I've never seen them on my plants.

Great pictures, Helen!!! I especially love the bludbirds, cardinals and goldfinch. I have all of them also this time of year plus our gang of tufted titmice, chickadees and nuthatch. What is the blackish bird with a little red on his wings?? I haven't seen that one I don't think.

You were really blessed to have so many visitors to photograph this week. I have started feeding the birds at my deer watching station, but so far I mostly have only nuthatches and Tufted Titmouse, with an occasional cardinal or bluejay.

I'd stay home if I had all those lovely visitors, too :-) Do your Bluebirds stay there all year?
