No pictures, but what a story to tell.

Enjoyed the pics, Dap, such pretty birds!

Thanks, scarecrowsdrm.

The photos weren't as clear as I thought...so I looked for more from a year or two ago that show off the bird even better. They are neat birds and welcome visitors. I love to watch them climb up and down a tree trunk. I read years ago that they are the only bird (I think) that can walk down a trunk face first.

I found one that shows off how cute this little bird can look:

Today I saw:-dsc06918-extreme-crop-fl.jpg

My juncos arrived a few days ago, as have my pine warblers. Activity at my feeders has generally increased as the weather has cooled. The pair of red breasted nuthatches who have moved in seem to think the rail feeder is theirs.

This guy is a regular all year, but I liked the expression on his face.

Cute pic. Is that a tufted titmouse? I can't quite see his tuft.

His tuft is folded down against his head. I assure you, he has one. Ain't no non-tufted titmice round here, ya' know!

Cute.
