Rainy Day Bird Watching

25 Mar

With the cold rainy weather, there wasn’t much to do but watch birds out my window.

I think I need to wash the window.  Sadly, I really want to replace the window with a newer glass that doesn’t distort as badly.

I’m sharing with Bird d’Pot.  If you’re interested, there’s still time to join in Friday’s Hunt.

Enjoying Birds

19 Mar

I have to say, I’ve been enjoying the birds this weekend.

I’m going to have to keep the feeders filled up now that I don’t have yard goats!

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.
