Strength and perseverance

I'm not sure what this one is if it isn't a finch

I love my birds

Tufted titmouse - I think

Can you imagine what it takes to survive in the frigid temperatures we're having?  The sense of survival that is ingrained from birth is amazing.

Stubbornly persist, and you will find that the limits of your stubbornness go well beyond the stubbornness of your limits.  ~Robert Brault

Yes, it's a finch and yes it's a tufted titmouse. Very nice pictures.

Hi Cathy, I love seeing your birds. You have the same ones that I have. You got some great pictures. The first one is a female House Finch...

I love your bird pictures. I just love the juncos and tufted titmice. The titmice love peanuts, by the way.

I don't know the names of my birds but I do love them. Still trying to make them believe it is safe, my neighbor hung a plastic owl for a year. Great pictures! :D

The top bird looks like an English Sparrow Sp. PASSER Domesticus

Cathy, is your new camera a Rebel, too? Or something different. I may try moving my car to catch some different birds.

Cardinals are my favorite bird.

Whitetail Woods Blog / Deer Hunting and Blackpowder Shooting at it’s best.

What are those very pretty trees that your birds perch in??? Very lovey photos, Cathy. I hope you and your handsome sons are doing well. (Dang...also your hubby. LOL!)

Hi Cathy

These birds are wonderful. It's amazing how the Lord created each one so spectacularly.

Enjoy your day my friend!
