Today wasn't a good day for backyard bird watching because of the soggy weather, but here are some other recent photos I've gotten of our resident wildlife. This series was from a couple weekends ago when I realized that our neighbors' tree is a fruiting mulberry tree. The birds seemed to be enjoying the fresh snacks that the ripening mulberries provided.

|An Eastern Bluebird perching pretty for his photo.|
|I'm not sure if this is a Brewer's Blackbird or a Common Grackle or something completely different!|
|A silly Red-bellied Woodpecker hanging onto the side of our feeder.|
|A Northern Cardinal with a mulberry-stained beak.|
|And a couple of Carolina Chickadees sharing a mulberry.|
