Backyard Visitors

In lieu of a completely Wordless Wednesday, today's attempts to capture the great outdoors through a picture window will feature explanatory captions. Enjoy the little visit to our backyard!

Tufted titmice and chickadees are the most frequent visitors to our birdfeeder.

Mr. Cardinal thinks he owns the place. When he and his mate aren't pecking seeds off the ground, he likes to perch in the tree and "chip! chip!" at other birds.

We have seen lots of robins - up to five at a time - pacing the yard in search of something good to eat.

This bird is new. I think it's a song sparrow.

The pair of goldfinches are my favorite. They're so pretty!

And of course, not all of the visitors to our birdfeeder are birds! This chipmunk must have an extensive stash of seed by now, because he spends every afternoon tirelessly collecting it off the ground.

And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky."
So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind.
And God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:20-21
