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.

Spring Walks

13 May

Even though it’s been really busy, I’m trying to make sure to take time to enjoy some walks in pasture.

I do love this time of year!

Bird Watching

29 Apr

I have a big, sweet Tiger.  I don’t know how he always looks so comfortable.


Anyhow, Tiger enjoys watching the birds out the windows.

And I enjoy trying to photograph the birds.

He doesn’t get to see the birds in the chicken pen, but I can’t help but share my beautiful birds.

And I keep seeing more meadowlarks in pasture. That makes me happy!

Here’s a robin in pasture as a bonus.

Have a happy week.
