Birds, birds, and more birds

I spent the day over at Mom and Dad's today, so I've got a ton of pictures to share. And seeing as how my brain feels like it's still frozen from the time I spent sitting outside photographing birds on the feeder, I'm just going to jump right on it.

A Hairy Woodpecker with what seems like an unusually large white patch on its back; on the other side of the mesh feeder is a Red-breasted Nuthatch:

Same woodpecker, this time with a couple of Titmice sharing the frame:

A series of shots of some Goldfinches on the thistle feeder next to the blue spruce tree:

A Goldfinch and its reflection:

A Blue Jay moving up from the ground to the feeder:

A Chickadee on an unusual angle of approach as it heads for the mesh feeder:

Another Chickadee hopping down off the hook:

Checking out the suet:

Heading right toward where I was sitting by the feeder:

I liked the way this Chickadee's wing and tail were fanned out:

It's a bit hard to see, but this Chickadee sitting inside the mesh feeder has a huge beakful of food:

A few Titmouse shots:

A better look at the Red-breasted Nuthatch:

And its counterpart, the White-breasted Nuthatch:

I liked this one because of the Chickadee you can also see in the background:

A moment of peaceful coexistence:

One last Goldfinch shot:

And finally, Kaylee. As you can see, she's still recovering from her Thanksgiving fun; I put the camera on the floor to take this shot:
