Mourning Dove

And the winner for most pitiful bird of the year is this Mourning Dove!  He’s so cold. Happy New Year!

Northern Cardinal

Growing up in Massachusetts, I saw Northern Cardinals and Blue Jays every day.  So going to Georgia and South Carolina was a chance to see my friends again.  Unfortunately, cardinals are shy little guys.  At least in the South. The picture above is a male.  The female is substantially more subdued. Sharon has some great […]

Eastern Bluebird

We have Mountain Bluebirds in Utah but I’ve only seen them in the mountains and I don’t have any great pictures of them.  Their cousins, the Eastern Bluebirds are very common in South Carolina and Georgia.  This is the male: Below is the female.  She has a lot more brown on her body.  And the […]

Nestbox

The cockatiels have been going through a nesting phase lately.  Audrey is momentarily interested and then he wants to go back to his cage. Conner, on the other hand, can spend hours playing. Anytime Conner is interested in something, Trevor has to inspect the object.  And how cute is Audrey on the right? It’s amazing […]

Red-Bellied Woodpecker

I saw four different kinds of woodpeckers on my trip back east.  There was the Red-Headed Woodpecker.  And this is a Pileated Woodpecker: What, you can’t make him out?  It’s a good thing that I’ve already seen one before.  Because that was the only picture I had of the Pileated Woodpecker.  The third kind of […]

Tufted Titmouse

This is another bird from the east: a Tufted Titmouse. Go to any forest in the east and it will be filled with titmice!  You can also find them at feeders.  My mother’s feeder was filled all day with titmice and chickadees. Did you know that titmice and chickadees are in the same family (Paridae)? […]

Snowy Egrets

I haven’t had a Snowy Egret post in awhile.  How many egrets can you spot in this picture?  There are also some Black-Necked Stilts on the left. This was taken in Palo Alto, CA.  We have Snowy Egrets in Utah, but you’ll typically only see one or two together.  If I were an egret I […]

Carolina Wren

In my experience, finding wrens has been hard.  They love to hide in the brush and sing their mating songs.  The best time to find them is during breeding season.  This is not the case in the South.  I found Carolina Wrens in peoples’ backyards.  Here’s one hanging out next to an air conditioning unit. […]

Trevor Kisses

Audrey and Conner play this game where you bend down, make a kissy noise and pop back up quickly.  Trevor makes the kissy noise, but until recently he did not grasp the popping back up part of the game.  Jon would pop up and he would run away. But this week Trevor figured it out. […]

Red-Headed Woodpecker

Do you know what birds we don’t have in Utah?  Red-Headed Woodpeckers, that’s what. This is a very easy identification.  You see, he’s a woodpecker with a red head. These pictures were taken in Georgia.  All my birding trips were so pleasurable.  The skies were bright blue, the weather was warm, there were birds everywhere. […]
