Fall 2015: Cardinal, Robin, Squirrel, Hawthorn Berry

Finally I had time to fill my bird feeder and take out my camera with the telephoto lens.

cardinal up close
I got really close to this cardinal, but it was a little dark.

robin in tree
I was surprised to see a robin in a tree, but I am guessing it was visiting the tree because the berries have come out.

hawthorn berries
Speaking of berries, the hawthorn berry tree around the corner is now boasting its red beautiful berries. You can also see hawthorn berries in this 2013 post.

black capped chickadee
I believe this little guy is a black-capped chickadee. Cute is the word that comes to mind.

And here is Mr. black-capped chickadee hanging out, munching in my window feeder.

I am quite fond of the lighting in this photo, highlighting the busy squirrel on top of my garage with a backdrop of yellow and orange autumn leaves.

blue jay
The blue jay hopped around way too much for me to get a clear picture.

What do you see in your backyard or in your neighborhood?
