As fall edges up on winter, these are some of the very special guests who have been taking up residence and blooming in my yard:
Cedar Waxwing: (He looks like a masked bandit, to me)
(This is the first time I've ever seen a cedar waxwing, that I know of. I don't recall them ever being in my yard before).
Tufted Titmouse: (He's holding a safflower seed in his beak)
White-Breasted Nuthatch: (Eating hulled and black-oil sunflower seeds)
Bluebird: (ballet on birdbath)
Black Capped Chickadee:
Gold Finches and House Finches: (looking like christmas tree ornaments)
