It was good!

The fresh produce did not disappoint!

Today's Greeting


The one on the left is from brood 2......He has been "babysitting." Baby from last brood just started coming to porch - I saw all four of them at the same time this morning...YAY!



Two of the youngest babies.

Hey, I'm hungry!


They just take my breath away - over and over!


I SAID I was hungry! Is anybody listening?


I need a snack, mama...

Ollie to the rescue. He's the best daddy.

If it seems that I only love bluebirds, it's not so. They all delight me....well most of them.

Particularly beautiful male housefinch....

Young male hummingbird...when he was turned, you could see his red throat beginning.


Watching for a time when the feeders were clear (of mom, who is my dominent one, and who won't let him have anything if she is looking!)

Too cute to be left out...

Mealworm bandit!

I just adore those baby bluebirds and cannot get enough of them! I love that "flutter" shot and your captions. They have got to be the cutest baby birds ever. Keep posting them please!

Oh...I'm so loving your baby bluebirds..I've been so ignoring mine this summer (guess they could use a break - haha) But the hummers and titmouse, finch and others are just gorgeous!

Jayne said...

Love those baby bluebirds Helen! The hummers are adorable too. You have babies galore. :c) I've not seen my last batch that fledged at all, nor mom and dad.

You're so lucky to have the Bluebirds living with you! Wonderful sights and shots of them. The other pictures are good too!

I too love the baby blues.But depending upon which I am shooting at the time will determine which bird I love the best. It changes daily. I'm so glad you share the bluebird babies. I rarely get to see them. Great shots of all your lovely birds. Wish I had your 'leftover' melon about now.Looks sweet and savory.

Loved the caption on your red bellied - and I am attached to your bluebirds! I love how they are always hungry and not shy about letting everyone know!

You have a right to adore those bluebirds. I wish such lovely birds would visit my yard. What fun shots to take and look at.
