I'm surprised that I'm still seeing juvenile American Robins.

The next shot includes a mourning dove and a carolina wren with a landed fish.

The mourning dove primped for a long time.

I always begin each month with: hard to believe . . . and it always is.

There have been a lot of towhees at my bird baths recently.

There are always a lot of cardinals.

The catbird was vocalizing very loudly.

Male rufous-sided towhees have such wild looking eyes.

I think the male cardinal in the next shot is one of this year's babies but he is almost fully grown.

The catbirds tend to blend into the deck.

Next is a carolina chickadee. They look like they wear little tuxedos.

The months sure do fly by! I bet the robins had a second hatch. Always love your deck birds!

I am surprised to be hearing young cardinals and one chipping sparrow begging. The cardinals will stay but the chippy has to migrate.. I do love your birds and love that you included the dove..they are so sweet... Michelle

Beautiful! That female cardinal looks like a finch to me.

These are amazing shots. I should get a bird bath - and a hummingbird feeder!
