...and now they won't stop barkin' till I post them.

Or was that Chris who was barkin' at madame hazel to post them? :p

Anyway, Chris, here ya go:

The Sheriff snapped this shot of Chickadee after a successful raid of the feeders.
He's hoping that this photographic evidence of Thievery will hold up in the Hazel Run Courts
so he can finally bring this Perpetrator of Perloinery to justice! :dog:

Cole was more successful with Mourning Dove--MD didn't dare come out of the tree
till the Sheriff took his Posse and went inside. Neither did Goldfinch.

Grace set up a blind at the SW corner of the basement yard and she and
Brier lay in wait, camera ready, for some action at the feeders.

Mama Downy checked out the feeder from the sumac.
60056

Seeing nothing too dangerous, she finally flew in for a meal.
60057

60058
Grace and Brier snapped away furiously while she ate.
She was none the wiser about having had her picture taken when she finally flew off.

Grace and Brier gave each other a high-paw slap and ran off to celebrate.
It was Princess~Queen Cass who noticed that Papa Downy was hanging around in the bushes,
showing off his lovely red cap.

Blue Jay stopped by to see if the feeders were full, so Her Majesty snapped his pic, as well.

Siskin scouted the area from the safety of the pines, then brought his buddies down for a snack.
60062

Pesky Red Squirrel had similar designs on the feeders...
60063

60064
...and when PR Squirrel charged the small flock on the ground, Siskin ended up back in the pines.

King Ember took over from the Princess~Queen because her paws were getting tired.
It's no mean feat to hang onto the heavy camera with paws, y'know! :frustrated:

His Majesty sat very quietly under the suet feeder and soon was able to snap this shot of Red-Breasted Nuthatch.
60065

In the pines nearby, White-Breasted Nuthatch lusted after the luscious suet...
60066

60067
...and finally swooped down to chase off Red-Breasted Nuthatch and claim the prize!



The Pack hopes you enjoyed these pictures, taken 'specially for you, Chris :thumbs up
and requests that you let the Hazel Run Mama know when you need another feathery fix.

The End

But it only took about half an hour for 15 pics! :highfive: I think that might be record, specially since the connection shut down for a short time while I was typin'. :o

Glad you enjoyed the pics. (I hope Chris does! :fingerscr) I still want some good pics of blue jays--they are really spooky this year for some reason. :shrug: This one was from pretty far away and it was pretty hazy today, so it looks foggy. :frustrated:

I might have to wait for the pileated woodpeckers till next spring when they're displaying on the power poles, but I want to get some of them, too. :D

:laughing:

Well, to be honest, she only barked once this time, but I thought I'd get on it right away. The rest of the week is going to be busy getting ready for Thanksgiving. http://bestsmileys.com/bouncing/6.gif

Awesome shots Hazel so clear & they look like you're right beside all the birds. :thumbs up

Do you get Towhees in your area too? We have them here, the female Downy's feathers reminded me a little of a Towhee

It's not the feasting...it's the cleaning. :o hazel is, to be perfectly honest, a horrible housekeeper. She tries to clean once a year, before the holidays, when the in-laws come to dinner. :p

L4H, you need to give Jasper and Sweet Pea a camera when they're out there! :laughing:

We do get towhees here, growler, but not this time of year. They nest here, then move south for the winter months. I'm thinking about borrowing Grace's blind so I can get some pics of them in the spring. :D

I think they'd be distracted by all the kitties... :laughing:


Actually, I'm pretty sure it would be total chaos. :o :D

And, I still owe you one. :p
