For the Love of Birds

It is no denying that around here, we LOVE our song-birds. We put out feeders, make our own feeders, and have a special place set up just so we can watch the birds come around. Lately, in the earlier and cooler hours of the day, we have been spotting so many different birds that we set up a camera in our kitchen on a tri-pod so we could snap some of the beautiful feathered friends who are coming our way. 
The Eastern Blue Bird is always one of our favorites. The bright blue backs and the red/brown breast. They are such a pretty little bird.
This guy here, what I believe to be a Hairy Woodpecker (someone correct me if I am wrong) has been hanging around a LOT since we made our own feeder. He LOVES it! And I'm so glad that we have it out, because I sure do like seeing him around. He's just beautiful!

Sweet little Chickadee with his pretty black head. 

The camera is set up for anyone walking by to snap a picture if they see a good shot. Even though this picture is a little on the blurry side, Carlie spotted our first Purple Finch! I was tickled pink when we were scrolling through the pictures and saw him! 
A Morning Dove perched in one of the bare branches.

A favorite as always is the Cardinal. We have plenty of both male and female cardinals around here. Love seeing that vibrant red color!
Our little friend the Tufted Titmouse. His cute little "peter-peter" let's us know he's come to visit. 
Do you like to bird-watch? Do you have a life list of birds you would like to see? 

One big bird on our family life-list is to spot a bald eagle. One day we hope we will. I don't imagine one will make it to our little feeding station, but one day we hope to see one in the wild! They are really incredible!
