A Handful of Birds

9 Jul

I was pleased to see so many birds on my walk, and the pair of bluebirds was a special treat.

Of course, I’m convinced the blackbirds are stalking me.  That’s better than a psycho, I guess.

Do I get bonus points for a red headed woodpecker (on top of pole) and an eastern meadowlark (flying) in the same picture?

Here they are individually.

Of course, there’s lots of robins around right now.

I have no idea what this one is.

    Looks like a Junco to me

      We don’t usually see them in the summer around here.

    hard to say, but my guess would be eastern kingbird. 🙂

      That would have been my guess if I had to make one, but it’s just bad lighting to try and tell.

    Lovely birds!

      They are wonderful to see and listen to when I’m walking.

    Lovely shots! I’ve not seen a meadow lark yet, pretty. Not enough visual on the one in question.
    I picked blueberries this evening and the birds were singing like crazy, and one noisy bug too.

      They do love those berries!

      I’ve had a great variety of birds lately.

    Great variety, I love the bluebird and the redheaded woodie. Happy weekend!

    Love the Red-winged Blackbird.

    • Teresa July 10, 2015 at 10:10 pm #

      I’m serious. They’ve been stalking me.

    Very nice! I’m no help in identifying that bird , though…

    I’m thinking you must be home by now, from your week away. I’m looking forward to hearing how things went while you were gone.

      I did get home last night, and it’s great to be home!
