Jan said...

Great captures. Did you know there'd be a fight. Probably males, I'm just guessing.

Nice photos of birds, Dot! I'd love to learn your secret. Birds see me and take off. ;-)

Tina Leigh said...

Mama was that top bird a chickadee too? I dont ever see birds like that at my feeders! I love those!

Sheila said...

These are great pictures Dot.
I don't often see chickadees around here, but we get lots of jays. Noisy things..!

Sheila said...

PS!!
Great collage of the jays!
Well done...LOL

Such a photogenic bird!

Gramma L said...

Ah the bird photos. You do such a great job with yours pictures. I think the fight picture is funny.

PS: My husband and I aren't much for the movies either. But this one was worth it.

happyone said...

Terrific bird pictures.
I love the composition of the mosaic.

Iris said...

The pictures you take of the birds and the flowers are great. I have a bird feeder outside my bedroom window and I love waking up to the birds singing. It's funny to watch them all trying to get to the feeder at the same time. Great shots.

Dot: I love the variety of birds you have shown. They look so healthy and have great colors.

Great action shots there Dot! I have been having a flock of Blue Jays at my feeders every day and have been too lazy to get my camera out! You have spurred me on to try and capture them!

Jeannelle said...

Very lovely! I like final one with the abstract wing motion.....very cool and artistic!

Daryl said...

Wonderful .. baby Jays?

Fun post, Dot! My littlest piXie just loves birds. She admired the male birds' mohawk (crest) and that "fight scene" at the end tickled her funnybone.

:D I need a good smile and you can through. Thanks for sharing your bird friends.

DeeMom said...

Andrea said...

Dot, these are beautiful shots of the birds. I thought I was on Mr. Abe's blog. ;)

KOSTAS said...

Marvellous team of photographs with beautifully and very intelligent birds!

Deborah Wilson said...

Dot,

Beautiful shots of the birds.

Jan - Yes, probably males. I use to have two roosters that fought all of the time until I wised up and kept them separated.

Rhode Island Reds are beautiful but they are bullies.

The Red Rooster finally ended up in my xhusband's frying pan.

Rose said...

I love these shots! I always love to watch the little nuthatches--I don't remember having them when I was a kid but we had so many others.

PJ said...

Cheeky birds! Don't you just love how digital turns blurred movement into something so special?

babooshka said...

Your chickadee is very simlilar to our coal tit a very freindly gardne visitor. W don't have anything as colourfrul as the little blue though. Just so cute.

PERBS said...

Great shots and very nicely put together. Did you do that at Picassa or with another program?

AVCR8TEUR said...

That's a nice collage and accomodating bird to let you photograph it without flying away.

Lilli & Nevada said...

I love your birds, i never seem to be able to get close up shots of birds, guess my camera doesn't have that good of a zoom. I really like that last one looks like a fluttering of feathers.
I don't see SKW for you this week?

Abraham Lincoln said...

All nice photos.

Today (October 25th) in my birthday. I am 74 years old.

Nice shots, I like the last one the most, so much action.

The Texican said...

Hi Dot. I think the fighters were probably female. Just wanted to give the guys a fair shake here. Pappy

Hard to imagine such pretty little things in a fight.

I love your shots Dot. I've looked at them 2-3 times. I thought I had left a comment but got to looking and I hadn't. OH well, I hope I remember how to get back home. :)
