I suppose that I have to show the Michigan State bird first:
This frequent visitor to the bird feeder is more colourful than the British Jay:
The most brightly coloured visitor is this red bird
I'd really like to get better pictures of the Cardinal and the Red Winged Blackbirds but I cannot get close enough:

The picture does not do them justice they look much better in flight..
My last shot is of a bird on top of its nest box.
It has young birds in the nest which have no feathers at all at this stage. We don't have tree swallows in the UK; our swallows would not use a nest box like this
