Clean Windows and a Short Spell Outdoors

Add up to some pretty nice photos! However, I must explain this first photograph. I've recently spotted (three times today) a Carolina Wren. The first time was in November.

However, this was the only time I could catch the little fellow in action... not a great shot, but it was the best I could do... and it's Proof! ;-)

Blue Jay on the same birdbath.

It was sooooo cold this morning!! Way below Zero degrees F.
But I got this while in the yard...
a few Eastern Goldfinches on a thistle feeder.

Photogenic, aren't they?

Getting ready for Christmas? I may not be posting and/or visiting much in these next few weeks.

Shady,

Nice shots of our feathered friends! Your clean window reference reminds me that Slovak Christmas preparation includes washing the windows - their houses are CLEAN for the holiday!

Wonderful images of the birds in your garden. They are loving your heated birdbath. Do I feel bad? I never got my windows washed before the cold settled in.Have a great week.

Hi Rosemary, Busy but good! :-)

Hi Randy, I feel as though I'm endorsing a product... but YOU would love this birdbath (and so would your birds)!

Garden Sense, I just made a quick visit to your site. Your current post is very well taken! I love birdhouses and my birds. Thanks for your visit!

HHG, Had it been up to me, the windows would not have been washed. Too many projects going right now! ;-)

Mr. Brown Thumb, Thank you for stopping by! I know it gets to be few-and-far-between with me these days!! Merry Christmas and the Very Best Wishes to you, also. :-)
