Birds that Visit my Garden

June 1, 2014

I’ve thought for some time about adding a page to this blog, showing you birds that visit my garden.  I put out feeders, grow plants that invite birds in, and do not use toxic chemicals – no weedkillers, fertilizers or bugkillers.  This is the beginning of my ‘list’ and the new page is now on the sidebar so it will be easy to find later.  I plan to add more visitors  on the page – Birds Visiting my Garden – as I take new photos or find older versions.

Some of these images have been published as all occasion greeting cards – with a link just in case you’d like to order.  My ‘published’ birds are also available in fine art prints on paper, canvas and metal.  Enjoy!

    Beautiful shots! The last year or so I’ve been totally getting into photographing birds, too. I love it. Thanks to Cornell Lab of Ornithology (which I joined as a thank you), I’ve been able to identify most of them. You have quite a few that we don’t have here.


  4. Thank you Candace! They’re such interesting little critters, aren’t they?!! I also use Audubon and Peterson’s guides to help me ID new birds. Looking forward to seeing more birds in your area on your blog!!
