When I first began this blog I wondered if I would have enough wildlife to post, and here I sit with 4 full memory cards. Computer transfer files not even touched. I'm blessed beyond thousands with an abundance of photos, and outdoor activities even in a harsh climate. And of course a good buddy to do all those activities with. I don't have to drive to sightings, I just put on my winter gear and walk in any direction to a wilderness forest complete with exotic subjects, and I never return empty handed.

Beautiful images Gary.ReplyDelete
Brilliant pictures, especially the Raven, Blue Jay, Hairy Woodpecker, Grossbeak, actually, I like all them.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous - all of them.ReplyDelete
What a great life, eh? I'm much the same here at Run*A*Round. I just walk outside (or even look out my window) and see so much life and nature. :)
Wonderful images. I just love seeing these pretties.ReplyDelete
A great selection of wildlife shots, Gary. Looks like you are blessed to live in a great place.ReplyDelete
Wonderful birds, cool captures of the raven.ReplyDelete
What adorable beings! You've done a terrific job with the shots,way to go!ReplyDelete
Am sorry for being absent from your blog lately. But I am glad to see your wonderful images of birds and the great nature in your area!
My family and I are doing fine, though planned outage of electricity is disturbing in Kanto area. But when compared to what happened to people in Northern Japan, we have absolutely nothing to complain about our current life.
Have a wonderful weekend:)
Your friend Yoshi from Japan.
Beautiful colors and shots. I love the squirrel a lot, but you have so much diversity in there... Incredible!ReplyDelete
Ahhhhhh, Redpoll fever, I'd know the signs and symptoms anywhere: no matter what else is going on, the little "barn'ahs" are in the forefront of conciousness, pushing all else to the hind brain. Elevatated pulse and BP when refilling feeders twelve times a day. Release of cortisols on hearing window impact..........GET MEDICAL ATTENTION BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE! But, lo - I think the patient will live.....ReplyDelete
Great shots. I haven't seen an EveGB in years so envy that shot. And, the crows are great. I have taken quite a few close ups of their back feathers. Very artistic to me. Nice post
what a wonderful series. all of your wildlife friends are gorgeous. happy critter day!ReplyDelete
Absolutely beautiful. EVERY ONE of them. We don't have Blue Jays in our southern Texas area, I miss them....so, he was a special treat. And the close up of the raven...wow!! Nevermore! Quote the Raven.ReplyDelete
My Saturday link:
Have a super weekend!! Thanks for visiting with me today.
Many wonderful images today!ReplyDelete
I love the sun on the Blue Jay's face, and the full beak of the RedPoll.
The English teacher in me thought of the 'Nevermore' quote immediately but I see Anni stole my thunder. :)
Give Boomer a hug for me.

You are extremely lucky! What a wonderful world you live in....gald we get to see it too.ReplyDelete
Raven: Snow-Slush:) (I just prefer them when the weather is hot:)
Another great series of images! I always look forward to your latest!ReplyDelete
All bird shots are fantastic and the sky colours on the previous post are amazing. Wonderful job as usual.ReplyDelete
Gosh Gary you live in a birding Paradise. Those are all wonderful. And most of them are right out there in the outside, not at feeders. I'm very impressed. They're wonderful.ReplyDelete
Oh, your header photo knocked my socks off--what a gorgeous dog! (I'm not really even a "dog person!") I enjoyed your bird photos. How nice to have such a variety of wildlife within walking distance!ReplyDelete
Isn't it true? So many photos, not enough time...ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting.
Your header always thrills me!
Cheers from S.E. Ontario Cottage Country!
You must live in a fabulous place! Love these shots - especially that fluffy squirrel and the charming blue jay.ReplyDelete
You truly are lucky. For me, I can hear the birds, I can see them in my compound and sometimes they tap at the window facing my computer! But never have I managed to get some fabulous shots like yours.ReplyDelete
Marvelous selection of images. It's just like birdwatching with you. Love it!ReplyDelete
Each image is perfection. I love birds, but I'm not able to capture a large variety. I live in town, so most of my shots include the bird feeder. Lucky you!ReplyDelete
You have a fabulous wildlife around! Your photos are very very beautiful!ReplyDelete
Hi Bob. From you that's good praise.ReplyDelete
It sure is super texwisgirl!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jeremy and that's great praise from a fine photographer.ReplyDelete
Thanks Robin. The grosbeaks were really something to see. The RedPolls what can I say.ReplyDelete
Funny Carletta that the Raven should be so associated with Poe when he plays a part in so many cultures.ReplyDelete
Don't rub it in Dawn. We're getting snow tonight.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the kind praise John.ReplyDelete
Thanks JM. Kind praise from a skilled individual as you are.ReplyDelete
Thanks Jidhu Jose.ReplyDelete
Yup, they're out in the woods Sallie, but remember, it's only 50 feet from me.ReplyDelete
To Adrienne in Ohio. Boom is very popular. I may have to change the title to Boomer, The Vermilon and whatshisname.ReplyDelete
It is a great place ladyfi.ReplyDelete
It's a lot easier when you live right in the woods, my garden haven.ReplyDelete
Thanks Doug and glad you enjoyed it.ReplyDelete
When you have a lot around you, just throw what doesn't turn out in the garbage can, Mudge Tekil.ReplyDelete
Thanks Chris for the kind words and glad to see you up and around again.ReplyDelete
I saw some Hairy Woodpeckers in Costa RIca, But,of course, not that close.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you did NF. They're really something aren't they?ReplyDelete
Beautiful images of the wildlife around you and Boomer. I'm glad you are blessed with an abundance of critters and choose to share that blessing with us.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the kind words Marvin.ReplyDelete
