The view from my perch on the mountain

Outside My Window

Taking advantage of what may be one of the last warm days this year the dogs and I spent some time outdoors watching the local wildlife at my wife’s feeders.


White-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis)


Tufted Titmouse (Baeolophus bicolor)


Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus)


I was about to put the cameras away after doing some much needed cleaning, especially the sensor on the camera mounted with my long lens, when Frankie called me to the bedroom where Molly was laying on the foot of the bed intently studying something outside the window. The sun was setting fast but there was just enough light to get a few frames of these whitetails grazing in the back yard.

  1. all beautiful, especially the Black-capped Chickadee with these disarranged feathers!
    To have animals that near is a gift, even if they probably might grab something from your garden frpm time to time.
    And if Molly could hold a camera – who knows, if she doesn’t already understand this substitue of hunting?

So glad to be back, Chip, watching with you behind the lens of your camera…you and your burdz always give me a lift…the chickadee in partic because we have them here…they remind me of me…hanging on for dear life in the midst of wind and snow, but they never let go of the branch! lol! Hope you, Frankie and Molly are keeping well. love, Katie.

  4. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again Chip, I do so envy you with the wonderful wildlife you’ve got almost within arms length. loved the Chikadee, and such a pretty fitting name for such a dainty bird.
    Hugs to all from we three
