It rained all last night and all day today - so these photos are once again in my backyard.
This is our "bird tree." We have seen so many birds of many species in its branches. I thought the goldfinch looked really sweet with the new opening leaves.
The white throated sparrow has been singing his heart out - all day every day.
The photo of the white throat was taken yesterday - look how much the dogwood blossoms opened since then. The pink really shows off the mockingbird's gray.
When I was growing up, my mother would have told me pink and red don't go well together, but everything in nature goes together perfectly. Razzle dazzle!
So far, so good...the babies are still being fed well, and are still very noisy. Funny, in the past they start their noisy begging when one of the parents landed on the nestbox - with this nest being so close to my door, they start as soon as I go out and close the door!
