Back On-line

Today's Greeting


Baby Album

These babies fledged 4 1/2 weeks ago, and all five are all doing well. One is bigger than the others, one is much smaller. The second brood hatched last Saturday - 4 or 5 - I can't tell for sure. One egg was still there Sun AM, and it's gone, but the nest is deep, and I can't count them.

Wading Pool.....

Splish Splash....

Can I get out now, mama?

So much here I don't know what to comment on first! Darling chubby little bluebird baby! So cute in the bath! Lucky to get that yellow-billed cuckoo in your bird tree - wow! And the fawn is adorable!

That mom bluebird has a look on her face as if to say, "Young man, did you wash under your wings?" Too cute Helen!

Mary said...

Wonderful post! I never see any of those birds, so it's a treat to see such good shots of them. I'll never get tired of those baby bluebirds :-) Love the bath shot.

Being a bird is not so carefree as we often imagine. Think of the stress of 2 or 3 broods a summer.

Lovely pictures (as always). Your blog is such a up-beat bright spot.

Today's greeting was beautiful. I loved the birdbath - you captured such a great moment. And the fawn almost looked like he was smiling.

What an amazing backyard! I have never seen a Yellow-billed Cuckoo. And I'm so glad to see that the babies are doing well.

LOVE the gerbera greeting card picture. And the sentiment that goes with it is perfect and perfectly true.
