Birding out the Back Window!

We didn't do our usual birding in Florida this year as all three of us were incapacitated to some extent and couldn't do the walking.  So included here are some of the birds that frequented my sister's bird feeders.  This is a Mourning Dove picking up the seeds from the ground.

A nice male Cardinal.  A female was also a frequent visitor.

One of the first Goldfinches of the season.  He has yet to get his pretty colors.  Look at that big finch bill though!

This was the most frequent visitor -- a Pine Warbler.  When you see the Goldfinch and the Warbler together, it is easy to see the differences.  We also saw quite a few Palm Warblers.

The Tufted Titmouse (pictured here) and the Chickadees moved very fast, picking up a seed and eating it elsewhere.

Last but not least was the Downy Woodpecker!!  We had both males (here) and females.
