The Ohio birds were out in force this morning. They greeted the sun with happy chirps and basked in its glory. They sang me a song as I walked the park near my house. I was able to spend some time with a few of these magnificent creatures. They were shy but allowed me to snap a few shots. They wouldn’t tell me much about themselves. Therefore, I am not quite sure in which family they belong. Perhaps you can help me identify them.
Love this collection of pictures! The blue sky blew me away! Absolutely charming. Thank you.
Thank you Lindsay! That’s very kind of you. (fyi-This showed up in my spam email. not sure why. You might want to investigate why your comments are being marked as spam.) Thanks.
nice shots. small birds are particularly difficult to photograph as they’re not so camera-friendly. what equipment did you use on these?
Nikon d3100 with tameron 55mm-300mm lens.
Amazing shots! and such a gorgeous blue sky making me wish that the snow would stop here in England 🙂
I love snow too! 🙂
I just love good bird shots!
Luscious blues and gray!! Stunning photos !!

These little guys warm my heart! What excellent moments you’ve captured with them. I know from experience how tough it can be to catch nice photos of songbirds since they are so quick and often twitchy. Thanks for this uplifting post. I’m smiling!
Thanks Teira. 🙂
These shots make me happy! What lens dd you use?
Wonderful pictures, they brought a smile to my face. It is sometimes heart warming to hear the birds singing, even in winter. And, what a beautiful blue sky day.
I agree. The birds fluttering around and whistling while they word makes for a beautiful sound even in the winter. 🙂
I think my favorite photo subject after sunsets are birds and these are some really nice shots.
Thanks. Birds are fun to watch.
Cute … and pretty – I always problems to catch small birds … they will not wait until I get my camera out.
My picks be the top and bottom photo … I the last one is so cute.

I like that proverb!
The birds are busy this morning in the oleander tree that shades my window.
I agree Nia. Thanks.

Love the blue sky, living in the Pacific Northwest we have been under the fog for almost two weeks. Come on spring!
Thanks. I love the Northwest!! Beautiful area.
We have been stuck in the fog the last week or so really odd weather.
The white wing patches make me think that the first picture is of a northern mockingbird, and so are at least a few of the others.
They’re really charming little birds.
Thanks for the info. 🙂
So beautiful! Truly enjoy your photos!
Love, love, love these!! They are beautiful and quite a spirit-lifter!
Thanks. He was a happy bird. 🙂
Great shots & what a gorgeous blue sky, wow!
Yes it was a great sky. Thanks.

I opt for birdy no 1 for the calendar. It differs from usual chosen stillness for winter months.
