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!).
I woke up thinking “I’ll take a walk today around the block and see what’s visiting today…” so I did…
I’m walking through the treed area now …
I think Dark-Eyed Juncos are SO beautiful… the contrast of their colors and eyes… quite stunning and yet – also – cute!
And one last bird for today’s walk…
Another enjoyable birdy day Until tomorrow…
This has been a great month for birding in my yard! This week I saw this beauty of a Blue Jay in one of my trees – the color just grabs me, I love blue!
Here is a lifer for me, a white crowned sparrow (male) was poking around in the shrubs with the house sparrows looking for seeds. The white caught my eye – and I’m glad it did! Another one for the yard list!
I never tire of the beautiful house finches, and I’m especially attracted to the orange ones, and I love the rain!
A couple of days after spotting the male White Crowned Sparrow in my shrubs – I saw this pretty gal in my grass – new bird for me = happy day!
Until Next Time!
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!
