Nothing like the quality of the posted pics.  This is through my window using a cheap point and shoot camera.  I can only ID one as chickadee.  The suet/seed cake us store bought general purpose.

Tony, this is an incredible photo of a kingfisher, I think, and its fishing techniques.

I should have written owl, not oil.

Time lapse photo. Bird catching fish.

The cat & owls pix is funny Patricia.  Reminds me of a "which one of these is different?" questions.

Tony, those parakeets and the oil! stunning!  
Patricia, what a great photo of oils and kitten. They must be growing up together. I hope they are kind to each other.

Snowy Owl looks like it is laughing Tony. How cute.

I love your other picture too. How wonderful.

Thanks for the song link Joan.

I hope everyone is doing good today.

Thanks for finding it Joan!  My Grandma must've said it hundreds of times, and I could never remember it!~ Melinda

My internet service provider didn't post one of my comments, so I'll repeat it:

I like the drinking parrot.  Made me smile.

I'l also say I like the owl pictures, as well as most of the bird pictures.  

The colorful gang of birds on the ground are cool as well.

The Betty Botter twister's not hard for me to say like the thistle thistlers' daughter.

booklover, thanks for the Betty Botter comment.
