Thankful For Birds


It seems appropriate to be thankful for the wild turkey
on Thanksgiving.  The brilliant male cardinal is often seen all year round...



I saw three bald eagles today along Catoctin Creek and Sumantown Road...



This house finch was feasting on tiny seeds in a  thicket...



A goldfinch on weeds...



I was thankful when this red-shouldered hawk allowed me to make these photographs...





A ruby-crowned kinglet...





A Northern mockingbird...



Song sparrows have been plentiful...







White-throated sparrows...





Warblers were unusually cooperative...









A pileated woodpecker...



A red-bellied woodpecker...



A Carolina wren...



Waving "bye-bye" is an Eastern towhee...



And I am grateful for you, the folks who visit my blog and keep me motivated to go out with my camera everyday.

Thanks for visiting, be well, and come back soon.
