With the Pandemic and stay at home orders, I've found that watching the birds visit my yard has been somewhat of a relief. If you like to photograph birds in your yard, then this challenge is for you! Can you identify your visitors?

Think the first one is a downey woodpecker, male....6th one looks like white throated Sparrow

Interesting collection of birds in your area, Sunny!

Thanks for hosting, Sunny!

A few birds seen around my yard recently: Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, a Grey Catbird, a Pine Warbler , a Field Sparrow,
Yesterday we had a Yellow Breasted Sapsucker here, but I couldn't get a good picture of it! Hopefully it will return again today.

Thanks for hosting! We have lots of birds both at home and at the cottage, probably what I shoot most often. Here are a few I’ve grabbed over the past couple of weeks.

Nice set! I don’t know that I have ever seen a Baltimore oriole outside of a photo. Wish we could attract them but somebody else eats the oranges and grape jelly!
