Lovely photos. We have verdins here too but they are quite rare.

They are extremely cute and I love the upside down positions!

Clytie said...

What beautiful birds! The next to last photo with the bird looking straight at the camera - is ADORABLE!

siga said...

Oh, this is so cute! The little acrobats :) "Look, I can do like this!" then "look at me, I can do like that!" and after looking at you, asking "did you see it? Wait, I will show you what else I can do!" :))

Absolutely gorgeous birds, and I wouldn't mind watching them in my backyard!

Lindy MacDuff said...

Very nice! You must have the perfect spot for watching birds. I really like the Verdin facing you.

I forgot to mention - that's a great first birthday picture of Tyler Jet!

Beautiful! I remember when I was about 10 years old my dream was to see a Golden Oriole - I had the Observers Book of Birds which had a lovely picture of one. I don't know if there are any in the UK now!

Thérèse said...

So acrobatic and full of life!

Magpie said...

You take such amazing bird photos...well all your photos are amazing,but especially the birds. I love the third shot of the verdin. Precious!
Do you lie in wait or just get lucky? The orioles always fly away when I get anywhere near them. :)

Diane AZ said...

Thanks Magpie, most of my backyard bird pics are taken from inside the house. I regularly make rounds to three different windows with camera in hand to see what's out there. The more often I check, the luckier I get. :)

Amin said...

You see quite a variety of birds that we don't see here. Love the oriole!

Debbie Lo said...

I love the pic of the bird staring into the camera! That gave me a chuckle.

Both birds are just gorgeous, Diane. Great job!

Stephanie said...

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Diane, So glad to get home and back to blogging. We did have a fabulous trip--but home is pretty nice also!!!!!

I love your area of the country.. I saw a new bird for me in CO I think.. It is a Clark's Nutcracker. Seen one????? I'll post his picture sometime. Also so lots of Ravens in and around the canyons.
Hugs,
Betsy
