These are wonderful! Since I am still in the nursery school of birdwatching, photos such as these help me study the colors, shapes and details more carefully. Looking at them now, they seem like little bundles of miracles.

That first little fluffed out goldfinch has such a pear body!

Very colorful post, this!

Ooooo, I'm green with envy. Your photos of my favorite birds are wonderful. Did you have trouble with the Titmouse? I do, all the time.

It's very cold here, too. Below freezing. I can't help but feel sympathetic to the birds.

I love the little lumpy goldfinch pyramid.

(And don't pout, Nina. My barred owl was pure luck. I heard that the BO at the CNC was hanging around the parking lot. Is that where you saw it?)

Stacie--it's brrrr--but bright sunshine! Luckily, I'm behind glass!

Monarch--I'm always jealous of your brrrrds, Tom. Had to break the excitement of all the rocks I've been stalking!

Cestoady--I was filling feeders all day to keep these pretty little fluffballs perching right outside the window.

Caroline--I didn't post my favorite, a silhouette of a form--low, with little feet, sitting still at the end of a fine branch. It wasn't perfectly in focus or showing color, but it was the essence of a winter bird.

Lynne--I LOVE that little goldfinch, too--keeping his feet warm under the down blanket.

Jennifer--The perfect antidote to winter's brown/gray landscapes!

Mary--YES, this is the ONLY decent chickadee photo and all the other titmice ones look like blobs, hammering seeds between their toes! Finches are much more cooperative. And, yes, brrrrrr!

Pineyflatwoodsgirl--I know you're waiting for owl pellets...stay tuned! :-)

Susan--the owl was in a tree right beside the drive, a little beyond the little hut as we were leaving. It sat for about 5 minutes staring back at us in the car, then flew low over the road into the woods...full moon rising. So cool!

I enjoyed your beautiful birds. It is always a delight to see the birds being well feed.
I have not seen the Titmouse around my gardens for over a month. It must have become too cold, -2 is too cold for me!
Wonderful photos.
