It’s been a busy few days bird-wise, and I have found myself welcoming back old avian friends, and in some cases, gazing right into their beady little eyes.
Of course, the squirrels have never left, but this one was loitering in a nearby tree yesterday, seemingly asking to have his picture taken.
And I noticed this nest, and wondered if it will be used again this spring.
I love photographing goldfinches, because they seem to have such calm natures, and will sit quietly at our feeder for long stretches of time.
This little fellow seemed to enjoy the sunshine.
The spring wind was blowing quite hard, and the feeder was swinging back and forth . . .
but he didn’t move.
He didn’t seem to mind having his feathers ruffled, and concentrated on his meal.
I was also happy to see the purple finches back, and wondered where they had been.
Robins favor worms to eat, and don’t appear at our feeder.
Still in a bird mode, here is a photo of a little bird planter at my sister Janet’s home, where we spent a wonderful Easter.
This was the sky when I came home from work today–amazingly beautiful and spring-like!
And I noticed these leaves of some species tulips emerging–can hardy wait to see the flowers!
Hope your week is a good one. Namaste. Fran
