Moving clockwise: tree sparrow (could be a year-round resident or visiting from the Arctic), red-breasted nuthatch (here year round), Canada geese (here year round), common redpoll (here from the Arctic) and juvenile mute swan (here year round).

There is something so cheering about the sight of these creatures in winter - lovely collage and captures!

Good portraits of these birds; I have seen most of these around here, also. I am not sure about the LBJs (Little Brown Jobs), though. We have LBJs, but I haven't been able to identify them!

Blessings!

I like the one with the red spot. I have never seen a bird like that before.

Beautiful images. :) Birds are such wonderful photo subjects, aren't they. They are just plain pretty.

Looks like the geese are having a spirited conversation. Good job on the IDs.

Great shots and beautifully displayed! The redpoll looks like our house finch or purple finch.

Wonderful shots of the birds. They are all fantastic.

Esther Joy said...

Looking at your beautiful shots makes me wonder how long you have to sit still in one place to get them! Beautiful!

I like all of these...I would have a real hard time posting them in a mosaic...I would want to show each off on its own page.
