Ha, ha – you must’ve heard me! I’ve been wondering what’s been up at the feeder. Thanks!
Those birds look so happy! And Robin’s bath looks soooo good! (It’s downright summery in NYC today!)
The little guy is a white throated sparrow. I’ll find a link…
…One observation Fr… You must be spending more time cleaning up bird poop than you do on wdtprs!!
Here’s a good overall link for many Midwestern birds. It includes an image and an audio library. Unfortunately, those pages don’t bookmark well so it’s best to just go here first when you want to look…
Yes, it is a White-throated Sparrow, Zonotrichia albicollis. They just disappeared from my backyard for more northern environs.
I had a sudden craving for roast beef when I first saw these pictures – the result, I’m sure, of last week’s feeder pictures being accompanied by pictures of that delicious looking rib roast.
David: Pavlovian response?
I guess I could post a photo of the nice meatloaf and asparagus I had on Sunday…
Robins are working on a nest somewhere near my office window – I watch them looking for mud after the sprinklers have been on.
I always look forward to the feeder update :-)
Am I the only one who noticed?
The first bird is red. Then follows a bird that is black. Never mind the birds. This is a code.
“The first bird is red. Then follows a bird that is black. Never mind the birds. This is a code. Comment by Andreas”
HA-ha…yes, Andreas…and the LAST one is red AND black!
You must have heard my bird enthusiast 14 yo son who complained earlier today that you hadn’t posted any new bird pictures in a while. Thanks! He will be thrilled to see them when he gets home this evening!
Fr. Zuhlsdorf: I need to get a feeder with a broader base that birds such as Cardinals like.
An upscale trattoria with an opulent winelist would fit the bill nicely, no? Or is the avian majuscule a Freudian typo? :-)
Old retired children’s librarian that I am, the picture book, “Round Robin” immediately comes to mind. Ever notice that robins do more hopping and filling up on juicy worms than flying? That’s why they get so round and fat. It’s also why (and I don’t mean this as a sick joke, but it’s true) I’m prone to say to someone on a crisp April morning after I’ve steered around a flattened one in the middle of the road, “I just saw the first dead robin of spring.”
Nice shootin’ Padre!
I’d sure like to know what lens and setting your using. And, are you shooting through a window?
Oooo, I love your ‘birdie pics’, Fr. Z!
I hear cardinals chirp outside my window in the morning-I think robins too. They sing loudest before it rains….it’s cooler today.
Father, I have to say that I really appreciate you posting your very nice shots of the bird life you have around you. Creation is full of beauty, and that is easy to forget sometimes.
