Our World Tuesday: Heading into Winter

This time of the year when the birds hear me walk outside, they are no longer hidden when they fly up into the trees.
In the summer I can hear them rustling the leaves but they are able to hide better.
I already posted a black and white version of the next frosty shot but I also like it in full color so I'm using it here.
The female cardinal was drying off from a bath on my deck.
My oak trees have just about dropped the last of their leaves.
I like the way the water was beading up on the male cardinal.
The blue jay was playing peek-a-boo.
The male cardinal turned his nose up at me.
Then he showed me his profile.
I love the way trees look in the winter when they have first dropped off their clothing.
The rufous-sided towhee was taking a bath in my front yard.
The tufted titmouse was waiting its turn for a bath in my front yard.
The sparrow beat the titmouse into the bath.
The red-wing blackbird looked around probably hoping I'd add some water to the bath which I did.
The bluejay on my deck looked beautiful.

It such a wonderful experience going through all your pictures.

Your birdbath certainly is a haven for winged wildlife, Carver! No reason for that cardinal to turn its beak up at you after all you do for birds in the neighborhood. :)

You get such wonderful bird captures. I like the reflection shot too.

Those Blue Jays sure are a pretty blue, but I love all your birds, and the trees.

Terrific bird shots as always, Carver! I love them -- it's like an "up close and personal" visit!! Hope you have a great week!

We're in full winter mode right now!

Love your bird shots - the blue jays are so gorgeous as is that frosty picture of the leaves.

The frosty leaves look so beautiful. The cardinals add colour to the winter landscape.
