Bloom Thyme Friday: This One is for the Birds

When words gets out that Mr. G (my resident BirdNerd) has been to Wild Birds Unlimited for the “good stuff”, birds from several counties find their way to us!

This week we’ve had cardinals, crows, grackles, downy woodpeckers, one huge pileated woodpecker, blue jays, house finches, yellow finches and MY FAV … chickadees! Do you have a favorite bird?

It is hard to get really good pictures as no matter how long we feed them, they always run away from us! Here are some of the feathered friends that visited this week…

Do you feed the birds in winter? Do you have or know anyone who has a bird cam? I think Mr. G would love to have one. Might be fun to see who visits when no one is around!

  1. Thanks for sharing your pics! Someone we both know who has a bird cam is Jennifer Hazel. You might ask her about it. Sounds like it would be fun to have.

  2. Let me tell you what I got my husband one year for his birthday. A “Bill Bird In Hand” from or Birds & Bloom (not sure which). It’s a fake man that you put your own clothes on (like a scarecrow) except he has a “hand” that the birds feed out of. Eventually, they think YOU’re “Bill” and will feed out of your hand. It was one of the best gifts I’ve even given my husband. What’s funny is my neighbor would always wave to “Bill” thinking he was my husband! HAHA

  3. Yes, I feed the birds in winter and all year long. My favourite bird is the chickadee, and I find it one of the hardest to photograph, since they never stay still very long. I updated my blog with some bird pictures I took recently during a cold snap. Thanks for sharing your photos.

  4. Great photos! Love the idea of a bird cam! Could do a live bird cam stream on your site! We have many cardinals that visit our feeders. My mother loved “red birds” and I never see a cardinal that I don’t think of her…
