I saw several wrens jumping about near the back patio and a huge red tail hawk in the front yard waiting to pounce on anything that came out of the bushes

the humming bird hovered at the butterfly bush, then she looked at the lilies, and stopped over the zinnia but finally settled on the saliva....almost like she was at a buffet

I love listening to the melodious song of the wood thrush. I have a whole colony it seems, the woods are full of music.

I was at my aunt's place at the Saturday and was sucking corn near the woods around lunchtime and could hear a Barred Owl calling. My kids were playing on the swing set and I called them over to come listen. I was surprised to hear one in the middle of the day.

I had a house wren nest with 4 babies in a house plant that was on the back patio and when I went out yesterday the nest was ripped to pieces the babies were gone. my husband thinks it was a snake. I suspected a raccoon or possum?

I think it is awesome. I am so easy I get excited over any bird nesting where I can here and watch the babies. My favorite ever was the swallows at our last house. The same two birds came every year. I loved it so much.

I sat on the glider watching the various birds zoom in and out of the seed patch but the cardinal at the top of the blooming fruit tree floated on a cloud of white flowers was breath taking wish I had the camera.

The hummer was checking out the new feeder my husband got me and all was right with my quarter acre

Still in the freezer here so I am making sure my little friends are full! I have Bunnys that come at night and clean up under the feeders and sometimes I give them a treat.I also have about 6 gray Squierrels raiding the birdbath feeders.....I put seed in old birdbaths and a lot of birds love that!I have 2 of them I do that with. I found some great huge colorful platters ,ceramic to use for birdbaths this summer, I like to scout the thrift stores for items to use outdoors in good weather. I have found some real neat stuff and very cheap!! emoticon

so far it has been just heavy frost. I've taken to buying seed blocks and cutting the plastic in one inch openings ...the blocks are less than 15 and available at most seed and feed shops

the blocks last about a month and I spend a lot of time watching the birds gather. sometimes the hawks drive them away

Northern Mocking bird is my regular back yard visitor, as we roll out of our sub-division we usually see Mamma, Papa and baby Sand-hill Crane seeking sustenance in our front yards (they love the St Augustine grass) today I spotted a brown pelican at our favorite park.

THe snow blew in here for a few hours this week and the coots have flocked up on Lake L'Homme Dieu--a sure sign they think the warm weather is over. The first Northern Shrike [Lanius excubitor]. This is the one bird that is a sign of winter. As bluebisds robins and humming birds are a harbenger of spring. emoticon

We are still seeing a variety of warblers as they migrate through our area. The starling and grackles have started swarming in huge flocks.

The house wrens are still hopping about on the patios and the black cap chickadee's are always fun to watch.

my weekend trip was eventful and I saw a pair of muted swans, and several eagles. I did not miss the vulcher that are everywhere in Tidewater Virginia.

My zinnias are a treat for the warblers crossing thou the area on their way south. They are so very tiny and a delight to watch eat the seeds after they pluck each pedal from the flower.

Our harvesting is in full swing so the birds are mostly out in the fields but there was a good sized flock of greenfinches swung by yesterday, emptied the feeders and then disappeared again.
The resident blackbirds and collared doves are here as usual and a couple of young bluetits from this years hatch seem to be around all day, they're still all yellow and haven't developed the blue yet!

Now that we've had rain (hoping to get more on a regular basis), the sparrows have return along w/ the doves. No other birds in the yard..that I have seen. Across the street, a bobwhite is making his presence known.

Thanks, I have a no melt suet recipe which is fine, this is just plain old crunchy peanut butter I put into holes DH drilled in a small log which is hung from a tree, the starlings love it. It's in the shade too for most of the day but we got so hot yesterday 86 degrees it just melted and ran out of the holes!

Our weather's turned nice and warm for a change, though it's not due to last long, so the birds have been coming back into the garden more. It was so warm yesterday it melted the peanut butter in my log and it dripped everywhere...lol...the starlings were still eating it from the ground!

That is fun to watch. All of the baby birds here are flying, and feeding themselves. Not far from Mom though.

Good morning, nice to be back.
I've just been watching the baby blackbirds being fed by mum, they're almost as big as she is and quite capable of feeding themselves but she doen't seem to mind.

It's been staying at 95, but we have had winds to keep it from getting too hot.

I have never seen a Hummer chase a bird like that. It could be the color hehe, or the Hummer had a nest close by. It was funny watching the smaller birds chase the Red Tail Hawks this spring, but they had nests close by the Hawk nest, and they weren't going to take any chances.

I had to look up where Buzzards nest Ginger. I see them flying around often, but never have seen their nest. This is an interesting article.

As far as I know Ginger, Buzzards eat dead carcases. Best to keep you peepers open though. Scrub Jay was here eating his peanuts. House Sparrows, Finches, and Doves ate the seeds we provide.

The Owls are growing like weeds Ginger. We went out to get some pictures today, and they are barley white anymore. We saw them 4 days ago, and they were still white. We will be monitoring the Red Tail Hawk Chicks as soon as they are big enough to see.
