Hi Darla, you definitely have a Eurasian Collared Dove there but the other photos look more like a Warbler to me because of the long, pointed black beak. Either way, I'm glad to see you enjoying your birds! They're fun to watch aren't they?
They are so teeny tiny looking - so delicate. Can you plant specific plants that attract certain birds? Why do I think I've heard something like that?
Hi Darla,It's exciting to see the Dove! We don't see many like that. I think the other bird is perhaps a Pine Warbler. I have some that come to my feeder like that. If you have a bird book, compare it with the Goldfinch. I've been trying to get a positive ID on the bird. It is more yellow-green than the Goldfinch. You are coming right along on making good pictures of them!I hope you can give us clue as to how your son is getting along. I still remember him in my prayers.
A Warbler huh? I'll have to check on that. My son is doing very well, Thank you for asking and your continued prayers are welcome.
Nice photos. It's nice that we have knowledged birders in our midst. :-)
Cute little Goldfinch/ Warbler... I am not good with bird names. Whatever it is it is a pretty little thing. :-)
Very pretty ~ I haven't seen any birds up close here in a while so I really enjoyed seeing yours!
Beautiful photos! The birds are so colorful... thanks for sharing!
Hi Darla, I've never seen that dove before.. Gorgeous!!!! My birds all scattered from the feeders yesterday afternoon--and I saw him--the lurking HAWK.. Didn't get his picture, but later I saw 3 Mourning Doves in a tree. Wonder if he was after one of them.. Poor things!!!!Have a great weekend--what's left of it.Hugs,Betsy
I take it from the others that this dove is rather rare...glad you got a look and too, a photo of it!
These Doves have not been around very long. They are bigger then our U. S. Dove and there is no limit on these doves for hunters.They are moveing north at a fast pace.Patsy
Not a Goldfinch...beyond that I don't know.You know you are getting hooked :)Leedra’s Photos For Fun Leedra’s Greeting Cards
I like your dove. I haven't seen my doves for a few days. I hope to get their pics taken soon. I hope things are going well for your family.
The Gold Finch are beautiful! I was just typing to someone else that I recently started getting into bird watching. It's really become one of my favorite most relaxing past times. Great pictures!
Our birds have all gone away for the winter and won't be back for several months yet. Lovely to see your photos
Your warbler looks really cute. We don't get to see too many warblers this time of year in Washington State. Have a great weekend.
I love the yellow one, never saw it here in Belgium !
Hi Darla, I am not good on bird names either but I do love to see them hopping around, especially this time of year when they come quite close to the house.
I think a warbler also because of its intense rich yellow colour. I have never seen a Collared Dove in real life so thanks for sharing. Happy Camera Critter day!
Darla: Thanks for sharing some of your sunny Florida birds. It looks like you have a lot of excitement on the warbler.
That does look like a warbler - pretty either way!
I don't know the second bird. It's not a bird seen in my country, I think, but it is very beautiful.
Love that header of yours, it is so colourful. It's fun to see that your goldfinch looks very much like the ones we have over here in Holland.
Just checking in to see what I missed. Love the bird shots! They are so hard to get. Have a great Sunday! Jean
You know I love a bird image. These are great catches. We calll that dove a collared dove round here too. Not sure about the other. Not like the goldfinches I get but does have a warbler appearance.
I don't know much about birds, just that they're pretty.:-)
Nice pictures of the birds.I never have any luck getting pictures of them they are always flying away.lol
those are some lovely close up shots there, and different birds too. cool!
