Feeder Visitors

I've been down with the flu or something like it, so have been watching the birds for hours the past couple of days. We've had some less common (for us) birds at our feeders, as well as many of our common visitors. I've sketched and photographed as many as I could, but there were quite a few more I was unable to capture. (click on photos to view larger)

Hey Melissa...I love these bird drawings and your photos. We used to have the little yellow wabler around here, but haven't seen them in several years. We do have the rest...really love the birdies. Please post your drawings and the photos on PF...our friends would also love to see them as those in the UK are still under pretty bad weather I think.

Thank you, Mollie! I wasn't sure where to post photos on PF, but I did post a couple of sketches.
