Autumn Weekend Snapshots

A few pictures from the weekend.

Black-eyed Junco

A Dark-eyed Junco. These little birds have been flitting about lately taking refuge in the shadows along the edge of the woods.

Squirrel in tree

I captured this little squirrel perched on a branch of a dead tree. They’re so cute that sometimes it’s hard to remember they are rodents.

Monday's Blue Jay

There has been an influx of Blue Jay activity the past few days.

Arrival of a Second Blue Jay

Here’s Blue Jay number two arriving on the scene.

Two Blue Jays

They seem to be quite messy feeders, knocking out as much of the seed as they eat. The chickens are having a field day cleaning up after the jays.

Autumn Tree

A gorgeous display of autumn color.

  1. Beautiful shots. I am seeing an influx of birds this week, but the blue jays are camera shy, every time I got on the porch they take off. The cardinals sit and stare at me and the little birds actually come on the porch now and stare at me, lol.
