Calendar shot.
You know, just right in so many ways that it could be the photo for the month of April or something.

Love the cardinal, we don't get them where I live much-lots of blue jays though.

Tufted titmouse! I just learned that.

But man, in the second picture, you have a tufted titmouse, a woodpecker, a female cardinal, some sparrows, and some sweet reddish bird on the top left that I can't identify (do you know what it is?) What a bonanza!

Lovely. I love the birdies and these are great photos.

Ianqui, the bird with the redish head is a purple finch. The woodpecker is a downy, but I also have hairy woodpeckers and redbellied woodpeckers. I'm actually surprised there's not a chickadee in that picture because I have a lot of them. And the birds you see as sparrows are (I think) American goldfinches in their winter feathers.

I am VERY lucky to have all these birds. It is the best thing about where I live.

I was just learning about common redpolls, and they really look a lot like the purple finches. I'm not sure if I could tell them apart.
