My Birds

I have been so excited
to see such an array
of birds arrive these last few
days!
They really make my heart sing.

Goldfinch and Pine Grosbeak


Goldfinch and Rose Breasted Nuthatch

Indigo Bunting!

I can't capture the cardinals,
but they are here.
As are the mourning doves and many others.

Alright, you can all stop laughing.
I know so many of you have GREAT
bird photos
but I still can't help playing along.

Every morning for the last two weeks a group of Cardinals come to our porch feeder. I just love it... If we feed them they will come!

Gorgeous and Mom is so jealous of your indigo bunting!! She said she'd send you two Cardinals for one of your Buntings? Love Gold finches too.

Your photos make the feelings you have when you see them no less intense, Jill. I'm happy you have these birds coming to visit you. :)

I'm a little jealous - I've never seen an Indigo Bunting!
Glad you're enjoying our feathered friends. They are so amazing to watch.

Oh my gosh - your bird friends are beautiful!

Every year we have one or two (yes 1 or 2) bright yellow birds, which I believe are Orioles that fly in with our first Hummingbirds. They stay a couple of days and keep migrating. Lots of hummers, little brown birdies, and pigeons - hoot owls at night. No pretty blue or red ones that have visited.

You are so blessed with all of your wild life!

Hugs,
Donna

PS How long til graduation?
