Great pictures! I really like your picture of the house finch...such pastel-like colors! ...and you still have blue birds, lucky you. Living in Pa. our backyard blues left for now..we are hoping they return in the early Spring! Thanks for sharing.

Birds and planes are almost impossible for me to catch on the camera. You did good!
I couldn't find any reference to a recent fire in Helen.

That four squirels and the house finch are great.

I do believe I'm losing it! Could have sworn I posted a comment about the undulating flight of pelicans....IT'S NOT HERE!
As I thought I said - neat photo of one of my favorite birds to watch in flight. Love the way they ride the crests of the waves.

Wow - is he being tossed about, or is it calm? Very nicely captured. Happy SWF (Reluctantfarmchik)

I love all birds, but I have a special affinity for the pelican. I love watching them be they flying, soaring, diving, or sitting.

That's an awesome cloud formation behind the pelican.

Helen: It's amazing how that big sky can swallow up a bird as big as a pelican.
Thank you so much for your comment, it touches my heart.
