Wordless Wednesday: What We've Been Seeing

Red-breasted Sapsucker
Western Bluebirds
Yellow-rumped Warblers
Pileated Woodpecker
Mountain Chickadee (at the nestbox!)


We're expecting our first real winter storm of the season. We think we're ready for 6 to 10 inches of snow. Wheeee!

  4. love the bird festival at your house! can you believe we have never seen a western bluebird anywhere we have been? when i told you about our eagle absence they came to us at once, so maybe now that i have shared this the bluebirds will appear to us as well! :)

    did the snow come? hoping you guys are enjoying a landscape of freshly fallen snow, white and serene. imagining a perfect, white cover of snow except for the prints the animals have left and your prints, robin, as you follow with the camera! :) looking forward to seeing your wonderland.

  5. Aren't those Pileated Woodpeckers incredible. They are so big.
    Lucky you to have some Blue Birds. The English Sparrows have all but eliminated them in my area.
    I am so excited for you and the impending snow. Please take pictures.

  6. Just beautiful. No sign of spring here yet. 118 inches of snow so far this season and still coming down. Happy WW!

  7. Lovely photos of your bird neighbors. I've never seen a Western Bluebird either.

    I can imagine the bird song!

    It's supposed to snow here, too.

  8. The Plieated Woodpecker is magnificent. All the feathered ones are busy now and so wonderful to watch. My experience with the Ceder Wax Wings eating wild plum blossoms the other day blew m,y mind. How Beautiful is Spring, always a thrilling time of year.

  9. We had a little spit of snow today up here in western Oregon--nothing that stayed for long. I'll be interested to see what you folks get.

  12. 6 to 10 inches sounds like enough to be an adventure, but not so much that it will create a terrible hardship. So, yay! We haven't had even one inch this year, which makes this teacher very sad:)
