Small Creatures and Critters!

I put up a new bird feeder today,
and wondered who my first guests would be...

I was expecting this guy...
You can tell he's been flourishing on my sunflower seeds,
can't you?!!
And this guy has been hanging around quite a bit.

I certainly didn't think it would be this one...
What do you think it is?
At first I thought it was an owl,
but after I looked closer I thought it might be
a red shouldered hawk...

But I wouldn't have guessed my first guest would be a mockingbird!
I couldn't help  but wonder if he was one of the juveniles that had hung out
on my back deck this past summer and that I had featured on a previous blogpost.
(If you'd like to see it, click on the highlighted letters to take you to that post.)

Well, I haven't painted a ROCK lately,
so I guess I ought to work on that.
Maybe I'll get one done today!
It sounds like more fun than going through years of accumulated "treasures",
trying to decide what to keep, what to throw away,
and what to donate!
You can check it out at Rock4Today, okay?

Thanks for your visit!

We have lots of Cardinals at our feeders. Love the contrast of red feathers and green leaves.
Would like to get closeups like your beautiful shots.
The written part is super. Yes...critters eat the seed too! Love them all <3
