    Does in my garage count? It took a long time to get 4 chickadees out.

    Of course it counts, Czevski!! :)

    I love your chickadees!! Do you feed them in your garage? Is it a pole barn?

    I love chickadees, yellow finches and lastly my current fav...hummingbirds!

    I would like to take some pics of the birds...soon I will, they are just too fast for me to grab my iPod or iPad!

    We try to keep birds out of the garage. It is just a two car plus a little storage garage. We have a small front yard and the remains of a forested areas in our back yard. (houses there now)

    Here's a humming bird for you. He didn't come back, even though he appeared to enjoy the space.

    Oh my goodness...you were able to get a shot of a hummingbird!! What do you think it was? We have a lot of Red Throat hummingbirds. They have such brilliant, iridescent colors on them...and oh, so tiny!!

    I see you have some yellow finches, is that it? So pretty and so bright yellow!!

    I am not sure about the last...almost looks like a grouse of some sort...but don't think it is.

    I caught a hummingbird once. It trapped itself under the deck umbrella and couldn't find it's way out, so I caught it using a spiders web, so I could release it safely.

    Wow, Kevin..they are so tiny to catch! Never thought to use Spider Webs...but that seemed to do the trick, eh?

    A Brown Thrasher. I am not certain if we have those in our area, but will need to check.

    We do have pics that my husband took of several hummingbirds...but it is on his Cannon, so I will need to get it off and load it here to share.

    Great pics, for sure. I am still waiting for that deer and it's Fawn to come by...:) hopefully tomorrow!

    This was a surprise! We've been scaring the squirrel out of a platform feeder, but wondering how he got there. We saw him hanging off the roof but I didn't get a picture. The bird feeder has a squirrel baffle on it.

    You can see a bit of the shepherd's hook pole holding the feeder at the lower right corner.

    Oh...great pic of the squirrel!! They are very sneaky and seem to be able to get around things that are full proof!

    Well, we do have pics of some hummingbirds...but still have to downsize or before i can upload here. Meanwhile...my Hibiscus is now in full bloom.
