More feathered friends

It's such a dreary rainy day. And I am sick. I have the worst head and chest cold and I can barely squeak a few sounds when I try to talk. Just a few days ago I was saying that I made it all the way through winter without getting sick... guess I spoke too soon. Getting through this cold I can handle. What I am worried about is Caleb catching this and the musical is next week. That would be a disaster. Jordan and Craig have both already had it. I suggested to Caleb last night that he should go and spend the rest of the week at Grams so he doesn't catch this but I don't think he took me serious. I'm just staying as far away from him as I can. I left work early to come home and take a nap but I couldn't help but spend a few minutes with my birds. They are coming in droves now! When I walk outside I get serenaded by the sweetest sounds. They are all over the trees just chirping away.
This finch feeder usually has a line of birds waiting for their turn.
This is a terrible blurry photo but I wanted to post it anyway. Can you see 4 different types of birds? A chickadee, a goldfinch, a downy woodpecker, and a white breasted nuthatch!
I love these little red breasted nuthatches but they are fast little birdies and I never get a good shot of them.
This is what I was most excited to see when I got home. Craig and I just hung this up last night... my suet woodpecker feeder and already Mr. Redbellied is enjoying it. I hope you are not tired of all my bird postings. I am just really excited to finally have some feathered friends.

It was nice to see all the different birdy friends that came to visit you! I never get tired of the Redbellied!
Hope you feel better soon, S.

No, not tired! Post more!

You've actually got a "Mrs." Redbellied!

Great shots and great birds, by the way. I just cannot get any woodpeckers to come to my suet feeder!

I love the pole with several birdfeeders. I am going to show your picture to Chris (my husband) and tell him that I want something like that too!

Pigeon... that is an old clothes line post but it works great for hanging the feeders.
