The Robins found my babbling brook! I’m delighted that the water feature in my yard has attracted its first birdy bathers! I feel like I’ve won the lottery… I could sit and watch this for hours (if they stayed that long!).
This morning in the yard,… the main action was in the chokecherry tree where juvenile sparrows and waxwings were having breakfast.
Good morning waxy!
A new sighting in my yard this morning- a bird caught my eye and I couldn’t instantly recognize it. She was flying from tree to tree up high but the light color helped me to keep an eye on her until I could get a lock on her with my camera. It was a dark-eyed junco but I’ve never seen one in these lovely pastel colours before! One more for the yard list!
I’m very happy today because I had a nice backyard visit with a beautiful Northern Flicker. My feathered friend even posed for me and gave me great eye contact all while enjoying the beautiful warm day.
I’ve seen the Robins around the neighbourhood, but today I saw a good photo opportunity so snapped this (below). I like how he’s just resting in the cherry tree.
How sweet is this little singing Tennessee Warbler? She popped by to say hello, so tiny and lovely.
She posed so perfectly on the fence – I just had to take her portrait.
Well, after the cold rainy days – we had a brief snow overnight… the weather here is always changing so it won’t last, but still it’s no picnic to wake up to. I headed outside around ten to do the usual bird watching and hoping to see the Catbird again.
Let’s see who was out and about…
And aha! I see the Catbird again, and this time he’s having lunch in my tree
After lunch he hopped over to the Mayday tree where I was able to take a couple more pictures through the branches. He’s such a beautiful bird.
