We have lots of Cardinals in our yard every day such as this pair...




Here a Brown Thrasher pursues insects in the grass…


Our special guest this summer, the Rufous-sided Towhee, makes a daily appearance…



Energetic Carolina Wrens gather food for their young…




This female Orchard Oriole was spotted at Lily Pons Water Gardens…



Usually thought of as a winter bird we have Tufted Titmice all year round…


A colorful Blue Jay is getting some suet to supplement his diet...



We have many varieties of finches at our feeders…


This Catbird is checking me out while I take his photo…


This pair of Downy Woodpeckers are regular visitors…



Note the sparrow that happened to be flying past when I snapped the shutter…


This Mourning Dove was injured by some accident or predator…
