Beautiful Birds in Pasture

19 Apr

After just a few sprinkles last night and a dry day, I decided I might as well enjoy the perfect weather (and hope the rains do come tomorrow).  After all, I needed to find a bird for Wild Bird Wednesday again. I almost stopped before I left the barnyard because I saw the barn swallows are back!

I hadn’t made it more than a few feet out of the lane and into the pasture when I scored a nuthatch and a sparrow.

Then I saw the bird on the fence.  I can’t tell what it is.  Any ideas?

It was on my way back to the barnyard though that I saw a pair of bluebirds.  Actually there were at least two pairs, but one took off farther out to pasture.  The second couple was quite cooperative about having their picture taken.

I appreciate it!

I do hope you’ll consider coming back and joining me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my sidebar.  Feel free to use all three prompts or just one.

    You saw many beautiful birds, Teresa! I felt so bad for the birds in my backyard after our recent snowstorm that I out out my bird feeder again, even though we were warned that the bears are waking up! The squirrels also enjoyed the seed—my backyard was full of them–lol I’d love to join in with you on Friday someday–it is hard to get online when I babysit a young grandchild all day, but I’ll try!

      I would not want bears visiting, but I’m sure the birds appreciate the food. I’d love to have you join Friday’s Hunt with your great photography. I’ve had a lot of fun with it.

    Love the Bluebirds! The way the bird on the fence is holding its head reminds me of a Blue Jay. You may have other kinds of Jays there.
    Have a great day!

      I thought it looked like a jay too. It’s so hard to tell when you’re looking into the sun.

    Bluebirds! I love them. Great series & happy hump day. Hope the weather is pleasant in your neck of the woods. The rain has finally stopped here, but not sure it is finished.

      We’re finally get some rain! It’s nice. Hope you have a great rest of the week.

    How nice for the birds to show up in the nick of time for a blog post! I like it when it works out that way.

    • Teresa April 22, 2016 at 8:55 pm #

      I know! They were being awfully cooperative.

    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful spring day! You saw some good birds. Not sure about your mystery bird. My old eyes aren’t reliable.
