It is really neat how so many different birds can share one feeder, might be a lesson in there:@)

Felicity said...

For an Aussie gal for whom these are new birdies, could you tell me what they are please?

Samantha said...

Really sweet shots! :)
Female cardinals are so beautiful.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

If only friends came that easy..

Deb said...

great shots....

Sandra said...

so pretty and they are "just a swinging"

Banjo52 said...

"Why can't we all just get along?"

:) But I've had that thought about different birds at one feeder. Then the gold finches start chasing each other off their thistle feeder, or the grackles come in and rule for as long as they want.


Felicity, female cardinal and male purple finch (unless he's a house finch, but I'm betting on purple here--more color).

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Aw! Perfectly precious.

Woody said...

I've seen you photograph this feeder before, I think I'm going to try to make one because it provides better opportunities for photos. We get mommy cardinals and red finches all the time, but rarely sitting together. Cardinals do not stick around very long :-(

Hilary said...

Lovely critters.. so sweet.

Julie G. said...

A pair of beautiful redheads! What a joy to observe them dining together. Lovely!

Jill said...

Wonderful shots of such pretty birds!

I second Lisa's comment!

Jan n Jer said...

Cardinals n house wrens are very common here in my yard this year. I am really enjoying them. These are great shots...love the bokeh!

Buttons said...

Oh I love their colours. B

Changes in the wind said...

What a pretty pair and it looks like they posed just for you.

Tricia said...

I LOVE that birdfeeder... so simple & easy & yet effective!
Great shots!

I wish God would get rid of the 'blowtorch' for Heaven's sake... I don't like the heat!!! =0

Millie said...

Such beautiful birds! She is quite large next to the little fella.

Sharon said...

I like to see the various birds communing at the feeder! The Jay, however, doesn't tolerate anyone else trying to "share the table".

barbara l. hale said...

Beautiful birdies. They have the same color scheme going there.

missing moments said...

Hey, these are the same guys showing up at my house ... Gluttons!

Liesl said...

Birds of a colour flock together! Sweet shots Teresa!

Nancy said...

What a great capture of two lovely birds. :)

snowwhite said...

Beautiful birds and delightful, soothing shots! Color combination of red and dark gray is stylish and elegant. I will be never tired of viewing them. Are they are a couple?
Thank you for sharing. Have a great week!

Farmchick said...

I need a feeder like this. I like the way it is so open to view the birds. Great crisp, clear shots!

sharon said...

I was outside yesterday evening and a gorgeous cardinal came hopping up by the front porch. was wishing I had the camera. love the bird feeders by the way!

Louisiana Belle said...

I used to think the female cardinal was rather dull and boring, but after observing for the past 2 summers I think she's beautiful. I love the way she and the finch are sharing so peacefully at the feeder.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

We have a whole herd of finches - purple, gold and house. How about a trade? I give you...what...say two dozen for a pair of cardinals? Deal?

Snapper II said...

I just love your Swanging feeder. You just might be winning "paint don't paint". The birds on the electric line might not be a good idea. I'm trying to save the feathers. One zap and dem birds will have no feathers.
I'm still having problems with google smoogle.

Martha Z said...

All are friends as long as there is plenty of food in the feeder.

LauraX said...

oh they are lovely!

NIce shots of these lovely birds sharing that great-looking feeder!

Farm Girl said...

Gosh I got behind with all of your lovely photographs. I love the picture of the grain. That squirrel looks like he has decided that you need to move, since it is his house now. :) I love the look on his face. Your barn swallows look so nice. Do you pull up a chair and just watch?
I really like the picture of your birds that are friends. It all looks so nice. Those clouds on the stormy day, they really did look awesome. Were you looking around for a tornado?

Flora said...

They even dressed the same!! cute

Shifan said...

What a beautiful pair. They have dressed nicely.

Gone Country said...

I enjoy seeing so many different types of birds on the feeders and bird bath at the same time! What kind of birds are those in the top photo? They are beautiful!

Allison said...

Such pretty sharp red beaks!

Gary said...

Really great photos!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Negerigeletschtempoit said...

They are like two people stopping for a cup of coffe, at a fast food place, before going to work.

The pictures are great - so clear and smooth!'
xxxxxxx

Marissa ♥ said...

Love these photos!

Their colors are so similar! Wow!

eileeninmd said...

Great capture of the House Fnch and Cardinals. The finch is a pretty red.

Debbie @ Swampbilly Ranch said...

These guys are great. What a nice feeder also.

bon bon said...

beautiful pair! they must've called each other to coordinate outfits.

MarieElizabeth said...

Wonderful focus on those two, and they are darn cute too.
