Good Fences #81
The birds are finally returning to the backyard after our recent stormy weather. A few regulars still visited, but the numbers increased today.
My plans for fence photography switched to Plan B when I realized how heavy traffic was, and I had a perfectly good fence surrounding my yard at home!
Here’s the fence…
And a female Downy Woodpecker
I hung out at the kitchen window, waiting for some cuteness to come along and grace the fence. I had a few visitors while I waited…Clicking a photo will bring up the slide show, mousing over shows captions.

Cute Downy Woodpecker–but no fence…
Adorable Carolina Wren, but still no fence to be found…
Sweet Red-bellied Woodpecker, no fence
A Brown Thrasher for Theresa, but no fence…
This Red-bellied female scolded me because the Blue Jays cleaned out the peanut feeder, refused to sit on the fence…
Finally! Cuteness, AND a fence.
Downy Woodpecker–just peeking in on you
No sooner than hubby asked if the mockingbird had been around in the cold weather, the very next day it showed up!
Here’s a view of the backyard featuring our second snowfall, eight inches or so.
It didn’t look pristine for long, hubby shoveled paths to the feeders. Wednesday may have been the first time ever he couldn’t get to work. I wish he’d been able to enjoy his day off, but it was spent clearing snow, and fretting about orders that needed to be placed. This morning, he had to dig through the barricade of snow the plow left before he could get the car out of the driveway.
Have you ever wondered what the belly of a Yellow-rumped Warbler looks like?
Now you know!
Too soon, our day came to an end.
May you be warm, wherever you are today.
I’ve chosen #2, 9 pictures and 9 words from Mama Kat’s.

Here is a tiled gallery tour of my backyard.
Stop by Mama Kat’s to see which prompt others have chosen, or pick one for your very own!
I caught some of my buddies in the act of departing, thought I’d share.

The winds and rain arrived Wednesday night. Let’s make that WINDS and RAIN. There, that’s more like what we had. It was a bit eerie, but quite beautiful when the sky flashed pink.
So much for what we had. What we didn’t have was an internet connection, therefore this post is a bit late. A busy day lies ahead, places to go, people to see and things to do, so I shall leave you hanging until my next post.
When is that nut, er, lady coming back with the goods?
I hope you have a great day!
