A Bird Walk

21 Sep

Last Sunday, I decided I needed a break from everything.  So I took the camera and went out to pasture.  It was a good day for enjoying birds, and a couple were even cooperative when I wanted to take their picture.

I hope I can do this more.  I might have to ignore tomatoes.

A Bunch of Birds

13 Jul

I haven’t had much time for bird watching, but I have managed to get a few pictures when I’ve been out tracking kids.  It’s been a bit excessive this summer. One day right before we left, I had a very good evening of photographing birds.

And there’s a lot of barn swallows right now.

They are everywhere!

Birds and Blooms

22 May

Walking in the pasture, I get to see lots of birds.

The barn swallows are back!

I have one surviving bluebell in my yard!

I am surprised at how many of the kingbirds I’ve seen.

My lilacs are blooming.

I also have just a few lily-of-the-valleys.  I thought my old dog (Stella) had destroyed all of my flowers.

The robin is still on her nest,but it’s getting harder to see her as the leaves come on the oak tree.

The wild plum trees in pasture had pretty blooms. They weren’t tinged by frost like the tree in my yard.

This is a funny bird, but I do like the squirrels too.

I think I must have been near the wren’s nest because she was not happy with me.

I do enjoy seeing them all.
