I've had three Bluebirds frequenting my yard since last November (1 male and 2 females) and they love mealworms. They actually recognize my work van and fly into a small backyard tree when they see me pull in the driveway.

The male is very timid so I really enjoy the opportunities I get to photograph him.

One of the females.

One of the first birds to greet me in the mornings before heading off to work. Carolina Wren.

I have a few Tufted Titmice as well.

My favorite backyard bird....Carolina Chickadee.

And plenty of Pine Warblers.

I call this one the party pooper....a female Coopers Hawk.

What an amazing set. The Coopers Hawk literally had me laughing out loud. Love the commentary too!

Your Coopers Hawk is having a bad hair day LOL. Great shots, as always Duane. Thanks for sharing.


All I want is just a little more than I'll ever have.
