American Robin and other birdspecies in Bird Alley

The variety of species are starting to increase in Bird Alley. the colours of this Robin Red Breast blended in well with the colour of the leaves in our ornamental crabapple today. This afternoon two look alike birds, a black-capped Chickadee and a White-breasted Nuthatch were feeding side by side at the peanut feederThe numbers of Mourning Doves are increasing daily and a couple of Grackles are proving to be very elusive with their availability for photo shots. Sparrows are represented by a few Song Sparrows and sometimes a Chipping Sparrow is seen . And of course Blue Jays are daily visitors,:As is Gray Squirrel also and Hairy Woodpecker.Each day I am drawn to my window to watch the birds and they are spectatular beautiful little creatures to watch and enjoy.A male Hairy Woodpecker with a mouthful of peanuts

Wonderful! that little fat chickadee is so cute. My sparrows and finches are beginning to return and everyone seems very hungry at the feeders. Winter is coming!
