how about a group about the different birds that come into our gardens?

Patricia...if you figure out a way to keep the feeding area clean, please share it with us....I have my 'feeding station" in an area that is completely bare underneath cause nothing will grow where all the seeds fall. Every now and then I will clean up all the seed shells cause I mostly just put out black sunflower seeds and as you now they do make a mess. I put cracked corn on the ground and the cardinals and dove and jays, etc. all seem to love it. I have a couple of ducks that come by and of course squirrels have to have their fair share.
Nice pictures, Patricia. We only have tufted titmice here.
I finally got some decent pictures of the two Oak Titmouse birds that are frequenting my backyard. Because there are two I am wondering if they have a nest nearby. Anyway, I wanted to post a picture although I can't seem to get him/her with the crest fully up.
Mark the Owls are wonderful, I love them.
I love trees too and wouldn't want to live without them! we've planted about 540 of them in the first several years of living here. (Way too much work!)
Also, I have two feeders that I can move back & forth on a rope, (which I use to foil the squirrels.) One is over my garden so I use the spillage as mulch, and it blends in with the garden mulch. I use black oil sunflower seeds as they give the least amount of waste, supposedly.
Patricia, it is hard to get the titmouse here also, as he won't stay still for a moment! ;)
Mark, you must have a great camera with a great zoom!! really nice photos. Had a hawk come down on a bird yesterday as I sat having my coffee on the deck. I couldn't believe how he got between me and the arbor in a very small space and didn't hit anything. He had the bird, which I couldn't identiy on the ground and then took off with it. Had to make a vertical exit too with the bird in his talons. Too quick to even think about my camera but I'll surely remember the experience!!
