Atlanta birds in the cold - My World Tuesday


Woodpecker and friend sharing the feeder.

American robins were everywhere.


Not sure what the birds are with the stripe on their wings. I don't think they are red winged blackbirds. I didn't see any red. There were some grackles mixed in.


Sparrow was waiting to get to the feeder.

Female cardinal at the feeder.

People say there are robins in Florida in the winter but I have never seen one here. I've only seen them in Atlanta. I forget about them until I visit the in-laws. On my Christmas eve walk around my in-law's neighborhood I found a handful of birds in the cold. One house had a bird feeder that had quite a few visitors. I was glad I had brought my 300mm lens with me. I almost didn't thinking it would be too cold to be outside (for me and the birds) but both myself and birds were out a good bit.

  1. Great shots, I do wish we had cardinals, they are so pretty and so are the cedar wax wings in your previous post. Those do cruise through on migration but only once have I been able to get a picture.
    Yesterday I was able to capture a shot of an egret with a vole, it's not as sharp as your egret shot but I'll use it anyway in two weeks.

  6. I love the cardinals that visit my bird feeders early in the morning. Funny to see a robin(or is that something else?) and woodpecker together at a feeder! Great shots.

  9. I love all these birds, and I think you do have Red-wing blackbirds. The ones with white could be juvenile. Just looking at your Waxwings too. One of my favorite! We don't see too many here and they are always exciting and so beautiful!
    Have a great week.

  15. What a great outdoor adventure. Lovely set of photos you have there. These birds are such beautiful creatures. Love all these bird that you have captured in photo. Great shots and some excellent macro shots. They are so free, flying sky in the sky. It feels really calm to be close to nature and enjoy the beautiful sceneries.
