Birds and more birds

I am so very ready for spring to be here. The birds are ready too (at least I think they are).  Today instead of a stamping project I have photos to share of some of the birds that have been visiting my backyard.  The Bluebirds have been house hunting and finally chose a house to build a nest in – I think it is earlier than past years.  I have four bird houses up throughout my back yard.  And I watched the bluebirds go in and out of all of them.  But finally they settled on the same one they normally use each year.

I have spent some morning sitting in the sunroom and watching the birds – and when I have my camera I can sit and wait to get some good photos.  I wanted to share just a few of the bird visitors that have been in the yard recently.

Pine Siskins - tons of them have been here emptying my feeder.  Sometimes there are 25 or so on the ground under the feeder.

It is another cold an very windy day here.  The neighbors tree came down last night and broke our fence.  It snapped the tree right in half – it was a dead tree and full of holes – I think that is why the woodpecker’s are here all the time they have been feasting on that tree next door – you should see how many holes are in it.

Have a nice day and think SPRING thoughts!

One thought on “Birds and more birds

  1. I have a bird feeder right outside my scrapbook room window. Thanks for naming some of the birds for me. I’m envious of your bluebird. I don’t have one of those.
