Carolina Wren, Louisville, Kentucky, 2020-11-27

These birds have a ton of character. This one looks cold, with its feathers all puffed out, and one foot tucked up in the feathers.

I was directly below this one, and in the first photo its looking directly at me with a "WTF?" expression. You can clearly see the yellow spot on the top of its head that's not always visible.

This species looks similar to the European Goldcrest, and is related.

These birds blend in really well and are really hard to see.

Oh no! I clicked something on accident, and now the filters panel disappeared from my window. I'm not sure how to get it back. There should be a panel to the right of the big image. Anyone know how to get it back?

Their calls are described as sounding like a bouncing ping-pong ball.

It's cool how transparent their wings are in sunlight.

Northern Flicker (Yellow-shafted), Louisville, Kentucky 2021-11-12.

This was one of the few times I've seen this species in my backyard. The photo is kinda blurry, but these woodpeckers are so beautiful, so it's worth it.

These tiny birds move around a lot and are difficult to photograph.

Some cool tree bud I saw on my birding walk this afternoon. I love the tiny wrinkled leaves.

Saw these bell-shaped flowers this morning. It was super cold and actually snowed for a few minutes.

Just look at those 3 cute little babies looking up at the parent.

I looked it up and both parents will sit on the nest, though the Mother usually spends more time on it.

OMG, the parent got up and there's 3 fuzzy baby Bald Eagles it was sitting on! It's feeding them right now!

One of the other Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers I saw at the same time. I think this one is a juvenile that is just starting to get its adult plumage.

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Louisville, Kentucky, 11/08/2020

This was only my second time seeing this species. There were two sapsuckers chasing each other circling around a tree trunk. I'm so glad some of my photos turned out.

I heard one reason birds will spread their wings and sunbathe is because it will kill mites and other parasites that live on their feathers.

Wild Turkey, Louisville, Kentucky 11/08/2020

Look at the iridescence on its neck feathers. Also its legs are super long.

Personal instance for myself.
