More Birds

24 May

I am really enjoying all of the wild birds this spring.  I have already overloaded you with bird pictures, but I just can’t stop taking more pictures.  So…

I need to wash my windows, but I couldn’t resist sharing him with his big maple seed.

I can’t believe all the Baltimore orioles I’ve had.

The northern flicker landed in the tree right by me and then took off again.

There was a pair of Eastern kingbirds.

The red-bellied woodpecker was a long ways off, but I just love them.

I do love my domestic birds too.  Mr. Peacock is still dancing for everyone, and they still don’t appreciate him.

The girls are doing okay in the smaller greenhouse, but I really need to start getting their building cleaned out and the pen repaired.

As much as she enjoys a clean bath, I don’t know why she keeps throwing all the junk in her pool.

I am ready to be done teaching for the summer.

The Goslings Have Visitors

9 May

The geese are doing a good job of taking care of the babies.  All three are still there.

Back on the nest

The other day while I was doing chores, I heard a noise.  Moira was also checking it out.

We had visitors!

They were just outside the barnyard at the end of the lane.

They were checking out the goslings!

And my big geese were certainly keeping an eye on them as well.

How cool to have visitors.

Wild Birds

29 Apr

My knee is doing much better, but I still haven’t been out for long hikes in the Back Forty.  I’m hoping that will be this weekend.  I love trying to photograph the wild birds this time of year.

I’ve still gotten to enjoy some wild birds just by hanging out in the house and barnyard.  And I still need to wash my windows.
