Fox Sparrows

He & I are tired of the winter

Soooo, it has almost been a YEAR since I blogged. What would bring me back? Well,I have really missed my friends, & I really had to share a new pair of birds,ones I have never seen but maybe others have, fox sparrows. In ONE of the recent snowstorms we`ve had  a pair came to the feeder,I am hoping they`ve stayed awhile but haven`t really walked through the woods to see if any signs of them remain.

Sat.`s Critters

Sonya,bird watching as she tears up a stick
Pumpkin my mom`s cat 
4 cuckoo marans,2 easter eggers,an extra yellow chick that I didn`t order in case 1 dies I suppose & 1 of the easter eggers might not make it
eastern bluebird
baby wrens fledged from the mailbox & were carefully hidden in this butterfly bush,still being fed by parents
A lot of activity here at my feeder in Pa.,the bluebirds are still coming for food but I have not seen any babies yet.

The carolina wrens fledged from the mailbox & seem to be on their way to adulthood still being protected & taught by the parents to stay in dense shrubs while they work on their flying techniques. I did not crop these photos as I wanted you to see how well protected they are.

This robin reminds me of my robin of years ago who followed all about the yard after my husband & I saved him. You can scroll through my older posts to find the "robin with the wierd feather".

These are the last chicks I am getting, I wanted the Cuckoo Marans as they lay the deep dark brown eggs that supposedly have a different flavor, & a couple of more easter eggers.I am up tp 16 chickens now & that is enough for me to care for. I love the silkies but I tell myself no...

I am linking up with Eileen here to share these critters & enjoy others from around the states & world. Link Here:

Indigo Bunting among other birds to visit the feeder today

indigo bunting
The indigo bunting is a much smaller bird than the bluebird,but what an eye -catching color of blue.They do not linger too long here,so I was happy to see him today.

So many birds to feed this year. I have never seen so many bluejays in my yard either. I guess I am the only one feeding & offering water as 2 of my neighbors passed.

The carolina wren is nesting in this old mailbox. It was so hard to get them coming in going,I hear little voices so I know they`ve hatched.

It is much faster loading my pictures here. I have not been able to load them on facebook lately & I love showing my backyard birdbirds,have a great weekend everyone!

you could sense their fear as the hawk has been flying about.
