Backyard Birds 101715 and State Park (updated)

The Robins are back out of hiding
to feast on the dogwood berries.

Then a flock of Cedar Waxwings
came along to duke it out with the Robins 

On the other side of the house the new feeder has been found.

This silly Woodpecker spent more time
trying to ward off the Chick a Dees and Titmouse
than it did eating.

What a ruckus!
Last week I had the closest encounter
with  my pal the Osprey
of the whole summer.

  1. Wow, lots of great birds at your place. I love to see the Waxwings in my yard, they are beautiful. Great captures of the woodie and friends. The Osprey images are awesome. Great post and photos.

  3. Oh my goodness...that Osprey is just magnificent!!...:)JP

  4. Great photos, especially the Osprey!

  5. Wow! An Osprey in your garden! Beautiful images of all the birds I think the Waxwings are such beautiful birds, lucky you to also see them in your garden.

  6. An osprey in your back yard! Wow - can I come for a visit!!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  7. Oh my gosh...oh my gosh!!!!
    Wow. Where do I begin? Such awesome, incredible images. And all so very near to you. Lucky you!!! All I get in my back yard is sparrows, doves, and occasional migrant. You on the other hand,

  8. Wonderful birds and gorgeous autumn colours. An osprey in your yard, that's amazing!

  9. Uh Oh - Let me explain. The first several photos were back yard birds but the Osprey was at the State Park near my home (which is practically in my backyard). What happened is I added the Osprey photo to the original post and failed to update the title. Sorry for the confusion. I didn't mean to mislead anyone.
    Since my copyright could be misconstrued with the use of the word 'at' I add a short location with it when the photo is not at Muldoon. (the title of my blog and copyright have a story of their own).
    Way more than you wanted to hear ;)

  10. I so envy your the close encounter with the osprey...I have only ever seen one, once in my life!

Each of you are a blessing to my day.
