Any seeds for me?


"I'm so hungry!"





This little junco was watching carefully as other birds were spilling feed onto the ground...just waiting for a few seeds to fall so that he could fly down and pick some up!


I was so happy to be able to get this shot through the window! Our friends had invited us for New Year's morning breakfast and while sitting at the dining room table enjoying the food, I also enjoyed all the birds that were visiting our friends' feeders. So, even though unmannerly, I left my camera on the table beside me and kept on picking it up and snapping. lol


I want to thank you all so very much for all of the lovely comments on my ickle squirrel yesterday. He was sitting so cute on that old rubber tire and allowed me to get so close. Thanks again!

Great shot. I know how hard it is to get pictures of little moving objects like birds. Your squirrel picture yesterday was great too. He sure has on his winter coat doesn't he.

HI, Pat!
Thanks for visiting Nashville Daily Photo! Sorry I have just gotten to you. . . I have started grad school and was at a 10-day residency and up to my ears!

Your photos are all lovely. How close to Toronto is Guelph? I know Ontario is quite large, so I expect the two cities are not close, but i'm not sure.

Pat said...

Hi Chris!

Guelph is about 65 miles to the west of Toronto. We're just about 8 miles or so north of Highway 401.

So happy that you visited this Guelph blog!

bergson, nope... no zoos close by to Guelph! HAHAHA!

Very nicely done! Although we have little birds that visit our little garden here, we do miss the juncos that used to stay with us through the winter in Chicago.

Wow! What a beauty. I just love birds and I envy all of you daily photo photographers who are so good at capturing their beauty.

LOVELY junco photo, so wonderfully crisp and sharp and cute! Nice job.

Dusty Lens said...

Fantastic pic! These Juncos are almost as friendly as the chickadees, but without the attitude the dees have.
