Wilson’s Warbler, Red-Breasted Nuthatch, Dark-Eyed Juncos & White Crowned Sparrow

I woke up thinking “I’ll take a walk today around the block and see what’s visiting today…” so I did…

This might be the final Wilson's Warbler I'll see this year since migration has slowed and its been a number of days since I saw the last one...

I’m walking through the treed area now …

Is that a Dark-eyed Junco I spy?

I think Dark-Eyed Juncos are SO beautiful… the contrast of their colors and eyes… quite stunning and yet – also – cute!

Red-breasted Nuthatch = Adorable

How cute are the Nuthatches? I mean really! They have such a cute call – it sounds to me like ‘peep peep peep’ or ‘beep beep’ and the way they defy gravity by walking upside down on the bark of trees …. ?  It’s exciting when I can catch one posing in an area of light for a second because normally they are tucked under the shade along the trunks.

I particularly love the shot below…. the detail on the feathers make me want to jump into the image and cuddle the little guy <3
