She brought a pretty smile, too.

A wave for the camera?

Near the birdfeeder in my yard this House Finch sings and prances his stuff for a not-so-impressed girlfriend.

This gal is not smiling

This makes me wonder how little finches ever get made!

Finch's advances denied!

Talk about playing hard to get!

The Blue Jays occasionally visit my yard to pick up some spilled seed.

Tell Harold that Your Country Neighbor referred you!

The Blue Jay, Titmouse, Nuthatch and woodpeckers all take the seed up to a branch for 'opening'. The Cardinals and Finches eat at the feeder.  Blue Jay opening seed

Water should be available for your birds.  A dripping arrangement is a good way to attract birds.  I don't know if it's the sound or the sight of the dripping water, but birds find it. So does the squirrel. Blue Jay Drinking

Grackles and Starlings are nuisance birds, but they have to eat too, and their blue/green/indigo sheen is a handsome touch from Mother Nature. Grackle

Most of the time this guy is on the other side of the branch. I occasionally get his picture, but not too often.  Red-bellied Woodpecker

I just missed a sweet picture of Mr. & Mrs. Cardinal "kissing" yesterday.  They seem especially shy this year. I'll keep trying  Cardinal
