World Bird Wed.

Today is world bird Wed.,please go to the springman`s blog to link up with other bird watchers from around the world.It is a world of fun!!http://pineriverreview.blogspot.com/
I did not pick any 1 bird this week.They all are feeding babies.I found this Carolina wren-although it is blurry-so funny as I tried to photograph him with his head turned in the most wierd way.
That house wren DOES have a nest in the gourd.Two familes of wrens nesting very close together,1 in a bluebird box & 1 in the gourd.
This catbird & I are fighting over the rights to black raspberries,& if you take notice,he is only eating the ripe ones!!!While he is looking at me! Is he sticking it to me?!
I`m in a somewhat better mood today although the taxi driving around people hasn`t let up,I am dealing with it.I just feel sorry for myself when I can`t be at home watching the wildlife I love so much.

You have the ultimate bird playground Phyllis. I don't think I've ever seen a cardinal with a loftier cap. Good luck guarding those berries!

Hi Phyllis!
Love that wren!

The pictures are great. Is that a brown thrasher with the stripey breast?

Hope all is well at your place...

Springman,the catbird showed me where there`s another patch of raspberries growing that I didn`t know/& or forgot about.
