Family stuff: Welcome to Birds from Our Windows! We are two armchair birders -- a mother and daughter who love to watch birds, but don't often have the time to do more than simply take note of what's just outside the window. Pictures being worth thousands of words, these are our stories.

Great camo for him, but note the eye shining through the mesh. Cats often fail to calculate their tails when assessing their visual impact. Continue reading

Flying is magic. If it weren't for their diet, I'd rather be reincarnated as a turkey vulture than a humming bird. Continue reading

Whenever any TV show on birds is on the screen, Stanley runs to watch. Even if in a different room, if he hears genuine bird calls, he is on it. He will sit like this for the whole show. Fake bird sounds and other animals, including cats, just don't light... Continue reading

I love this little guy. He had fluffed his scary red crown moments earlier and you can see that he has a red feather still out of place if you look closely. -EO ... Continue reading

I have caught glimpses of these among the black-capped chickadees that we mostly see -- but finally got a (not great) photo to confirm. Hoping for better photographic luck next time! --EO Continue reading

This fat and hungry gray squirrel is doing well after a near fatal attack by a predator who got a good chunk of his skin and then they fought over it. The squirrel lost the skin that was grabbed, but saved the rest. Somebody got a mouthful of fur. We... Continue reading

The robins are bringing all sorts of fellow travelers. This morning, it was droves of cedar waxwings -- and then flickers and varied thrushes also showed up. Everybody wants to party with the cool kids! -EO ... Continue reading

I have never seen these at the house. This morning, as a bitter frost began to lift, they arrived in droves, along with the robins. -EO ... Continue reading

In the winter, they flock. I'll see a dozen -- or even 40 -- right outside. They scrabble in the French drain rocks, crap on the sidewalk, roost on the roof, and generally commit mayhem. The men also like to puff themselves out and be self-impressed. Caught these through the... Continue reading

These are winter residents. I have been waiting for them to appear -- last year, they showed up at the feeders and stayed for months. Still none at the feeders -- but I did see them mixing with black-capped chickadees by the river yesterday. Like seeing and old friend. -EO Continue reading

I don't normally see too many robins at our house. But this fall it's been positively Hitchcockian. The camera can't capture the swarms of them squalling in the trees all day -- but here is a little hint at their numbers. -EO ... Continue reading

These are seasonal birds at our house. We do't see them in the summer, but will all winter. /ko Continue reading
