.....................Fat Tuesday for the birds?

The woods behind our house are just alive with birds this morning.  We have the "usual gang" at the feeder - finches, chickadees, junkos, tufted titmice, sparrows, and more. 

BUT, we've also been watching birds in the the trees and there are so many varieties!  Cardinals are on of my favorites, but check out this beauty: 

I think she must be a female cardinal but she's gorgeous! 

There are also quite a few Cedar Waxwings which we rarely see,

and ... are you ready?  Robins! 

There are also the woodpeckers, which we see frequently.  But today there are quite a few!  Red Bellied, Hairy, Downy, there all there.

 It's like a Bird party.  I'm reminded of the Dr. Seuss book, Go Dog Go, where all the dogs are going to the dog party.  Maybe we'll write a new story, Fly Bird Fly!
