Some of my favorites are the Tufted Titmouse. They're sort of cocky, and I like that about them. They only come around for me when there are tons of other birds around. It's not that they're shy, but simply cautious.
This, below, is the Eastern Wood Pewee. I thought it was a flycatcher, then a phoebe, but the coloration just wasn't right. I'll have to make sure through various birding friends, but I think that's what this is. She was a striking bird - very calm and self assured. Beautiful.
The last little guy I captured was a white-breasted nuthatch. They're everywhere, but don't often like posing for photos. I mean, this isn't America's Next Top Bird Models, for heaven's sake. They all just want to nibble in peace and not be bothered by my camera with a long lens and my dog's big face in the window. Birds just make me happy. How can one not be cheered by a bird? (with nod to Pooh) Thanks for letting me post these bird's photos.
