My husband likes to call us "old retired people." Sometimes, our hobbies match that description perfectly. Like, yesterday. When we spent at least two hours of our day off watching and taking pictures of the birds in our backyard.

We have multiple feeders (and even got a new one yesterday). We have feeders for hummingbirds and oriels, a feeder for finches, and a feeder for all other birds. And the birds have definitely begun to visit. They are so, so beautiful. And so, so interesting.
I can hear my college roommate cringing as she reads this. She is not a fan of birds.

Please enjoy our birdie backyard.

(please excuse the not-so-awesome quality of the pictures - I was shooting through windows that aren't exactly spotless)


  1. I love this! It's so funny because I was just talking to my hubby about the beautiful birds we have in our backyard yesterday at dinner. I saw a gorgeous bluejay and we have lots of cardinals. Maybe we should consider bird-feeders! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Oh, cardinals are so pretty! You should definitely get bird feeders - you'll start to see a bigger variety in birds!

  2. Lovely birds. Minnesota has tons of beautiful birds.

  3. Hi there, stopping by from the Jack of All Trades link-up :) Lovely photography! My boyfriend and I love spending weekend mornings watching the birds at the feeder. There's something so relaxing about it, even if it is an 'old person' hobby LOL.

  4. Stopping by from Jack of All Trades - I enjoyed looking at your birds. We have three bird feeders in our yard and it is neat to see the different birds that come to enjoy
