More Bird Pictures

I spent only 15-20 minutes sitting at the dining room table this afternoon taking pictures of birds. Dozens and dozens of birds are on the deck at any one time with just as many put in the trees waiting their turn. Below there's at least one photo of each species that came to the deck while I was there...with the exception of the Tufted Titmouse. It flitted in and out too quickly for me to aim, focus and shoot.

Earlier in the day we also had a Red-bellied Wood Pecker, a Downy Woodpecker and a half dozen Blue Jays.

Very nice! Our bird numbers are dwindling and we keep finding dead ones even up on the back farm roads. Alan thinks maybe a shrike is taking them. If so I haven't seen one. Kinda scary.
