Lol...yes Betsy, it's feeding time !What a sweet little Sparrow.~Jo
Isn't he sweet? I love it when this variety comes around!
Hahaha, good one.
They're cold...and SO hungry! Can't keep the feeders filled!
No cooking for you tonight? Lucky you! I have done a bit of spring cleaning around here myself this week!
Do you get a lot of sun during the winter? We do, it's super nice to see, even if it's cold out. Yes, can't let them go hungry.
Yes... we probably have very similar weather being in neighboring states and all.
Did you get spring ants last week? Good gosh, we saw two. Now none,with the colder than life of Mars weather. But still. Ants. Though what am I saying? I'm spring cleaning. Come spring I wantto be done with the last bit of pile that I don't know what to do with.Have a great weekend, Betsy.
No ants here....in January? Aren't they supposed to be hibernating or something? Lol.....they must have smelled something good in your kitchen. Ha.Good for you on the spring cleaning! I'm just doing a tiny bit each day.....will take me weeks, but that's fine....I'll finish by spring, I think!
Manners! "Come out and fill the feeder, PLEASE",
Birds these days! Sigh!
Yeah, I know. Didn't their parents teach them anything?
Great shot Betsy and i am sure if you held out your lovely hand he would come and take some feed from you . . . . . :)
Probably! They don't go far when I walk out there...they know who feeds them!
Laughing! Love his little cocked head - so darn sweet. I don't know how all the furry and feathery beasts survive this cold. And birdies are so tiny. Ah well, I know you are keeping your neighbourhood fed, and that's a good thing!
It is amazing that they can survive. Feathers don't seem like they would be as warm as fur. And their little bare legs! Brr.
I think they are hungry:)))
Yes, and they look in the window and tell me!
My feeder is just about empty and my bird friends will be looking at me like that soon too.He's a beautiful capture.:0)
Isn't he sweet? We didn't have any white crowned sparrows over the summer...so nice to see them..there are two of them!
Wow - what a great capture. Aren't they the sweetest things. I spent a good part of my day feeding birds at our lot in Manotick. They were all so hungry and happy to have the sun on their backs. One little morning dove ate and then rested on a branch for a long time in the sun. So beautiful to see. We had a nice day today, Betsy. Not frigid cold like the last two. It was only -8. haha! We Canadians are rugged.
We were about 10 degrees warmer, too. A heat wave ...lol...At least we had sun, like you mentioned...the birds were soaking it up! And the cats were soaking it up inside, too....every little sunspot on the furniture and floor! ha.
What a beautiful picture! It looks like the little guy was posing for you.
Hi Susan! It's been a while! Hope you're doing alright. It does look like he's posing! At least I tell myself that he is! I mean, he really was making eye contact. lol.
He is adorable. It almost looks like he has a mask on the way the black line goes right into his eyes. Great detail on the branch.
It really does! A little super hero bird! haha.
my birds do the same thing - i have feeders right outside my window on the deck - ...and this is a beautiful photo.
It sure is fun watching them up close, isn't it?
haha leaving the feeder empty at your zooHow rude of youNeed to fill that statAs they know your place is where it is at
I must have the only feeder around!Seems like they come from all over town!
Love those white crowns! I have one that comes to dine on suet. So pretty!
There are two here this week...so happy to see them....they were here for summer and fall! Suet is on my list...still! Need peanut butter I think....spencer has cleaned us out!
What a pretty little bird!
I think he's just the sweetest thing! And in all my favorite colors!
Not only do you get these magnificent pictures, you actually can identify the birds. So cool! :)Jane x
I got binoculars and bird identification books as a gift years ago....so fun! Two AM? You have nervous energy about today, don't you! Lol....
Hi Betsy - he's certainly looking at you! Great photo ... I bet you leave them a post-it note ... saying look here ... then you take their mug shot and then deign to feed the feeders ... Wonderful to see - he's so beautiful - handsome I guess would be better .. cheers Hilary
It is fun when they obviously know you and get excited to see you walk out to the tree!
LOL! I JUST said to Evan, "We need to fill the bird feeders today." LOL! Then, I clicked on your blog. Affirmation, baby. ;) Happy feeder filling! blessings ~ tanna
Mine need filled again already!
Aww, he does look a wee bit chilled! Handsome fella.
I'm sure they have at least appreciated the sun this week...it had to help with the temps so bitter!
oh my, the zoo is getting restlessyou better get busy filling the food bowls....ha
They're all bringing their friends home for dinner! haha.
What a pretty little bird, we don't have those here.
Aren't they sweet? One of my favorites!
Yup, that is exactly what that bird is asking, Betsy. Filled our feede today and the birds immediately came to eat. One little sparrow sat in the tree beside the feeder and didn't move an inch while the feeder was filled. Too cold to move and wanted to be first at the feeder:)
Yikes..how many times did I have to insert 'feeder' in that comment?? haha
haha...you crack me up! It is kind of amazing how friendly they can be...they know who fills the feeder. That little one wasn't scared a bit!
What a cutie! It's hard to keep those feeders full between the squirrels and the birds.
Cute shot of the White Crowned Sparrow!
hadn't seen any in a while...so happy they have returned to my yard!
I know! Aw.
So cute! I hope you filled up the feeder for him. :-)
Oh yes...they sure are hungry when it's cold!
A great bird [one of which I've not seen here] and the closed captioning is awesome. Did you feed it yet?Thanks for sharing the link this weekend at I'd Rather B Birdin'
Absolutely! How could I refuse that sweet thing? ha.
Haha great photo! I imagine that caption is pretty accurate, as well!
that little beauty is hungry :) Great shot!
