A Few...

Today's Greeting

Baby Album

This is my favorite hummingbird feeder - all the birds love to use it as a perch.

Just looking beautiful!

Mama is still looking pretty good...the new nestlings will be fledging in a few days.


This cherry tree is right next to the tree with the catbirds' nest...makes it convenient.



I don't know where the red-bellies nested - the starlings took over the cavity they madein the fall...


Speaking of the starlings - I thought the babies were about to fledge earlier in the week, but this was the scene today.

Love the baby blue on the hummingbird tube feeder! And I just hate to say it - but you got a very nice capture of the starlings ;-)

It's just Bluebird overdose on here at the moment but then I'm not sure I could leave them alone for very long either. Lovely stuff!

Lin - Thanks. Best of luck with all your week-end doings.

Barb - lol...I never fail to think of your when I see starlings (guess that would be insulting in anothr context..lol)

bluebirder - I actually gave the bluebirds a day off-camera a few days ago, but it doesn't happen often! Thanks for visiting.

Gorgeous images as always - but there's something you have, that you don't even know you do!
I believe the woodpecker you showed us is not a Redbelly. I think it's the much more rare Golden-fronted Woodpecker!
And that would be the 1st I've ever seen, other than in books.
Cheers, Klaus

Klaus - that would be super cool....but I dunno - I don't see any yellow, she hangs out with a male RB, and - I'm in VA.
