World Bird Wed.

Today you should go visit the springman & participate in his showing of birds from all over the world.Read peoples stories,join in the fun! The link is
I`m lucky to still be awake.What a day.The goats all escaped agin today & Hendrix was stuck TWICE today in the wire how can they get their head & horns though that small space?!so I gave up & herded them back to the old pen.The dh mucked it out with the tractor as I helped throw "stuff"on the bucket of the tractor.The goats were penned in the barn.I swear,if anyone would`ve come along today & said,give them to me,I have tons of pasture for them to run in with ELECTRIC fencing,I would`ve gladly loaded them up for them.I was so pissed today.Jimi wanted to butt me-gently but meaningfully-because his twin brother Hendrix kept getting caught with his head in the wire of the panel. But,it is done now,so here is what I can offer this week to the meme,the rose breasted grosbeaks are still here,this is the longest they have spent with me ever,the purple house finch off to the bottom of the left in the picture,the carolina wren was stocking up suet in crevices of trees, the hummingbird-just one-is still here with the catbirds.The brown thrashers may have left yesterday,I did not see them today.
What makes them think that their head & horns will fit through that space?Thank the Lord I only had 1 goat continually get stuck over & over,not all of them!Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week!

Bless you Phyllis, I feel your weariness. That is a lot of aggravating work to deal with. And taking all that into account, you still managed to post. I am humbled. Sweet dreams and a better day tomorrow!

I just love the Groasbeaks and your wren is a cutie. Great birds and the goats are pretty cool too.

Unless you have gravel the other side of the fence, they will keep sticking their horned heads through the wire.
I wowed we would never have goats, cattle and sheep and the granddaughters' horses are quite enough but what can you do when your (soft hearted) granddaughter comes home with a billy goat kid but put a ring on it and give it a home.
It is the bottle fed steer that does the love-butting around here.
Nice to se what is still up and flying around in your area.

I'm surprised you had time to take any pictures! I love the shot of the Wren and the Grosbeaks are beautiful birds to have hanging around.

Hi Phyllis-
The pictures are wonderful, as always. The goats are being obstinate-they need some lessons about correct goat behavior.
I have a special spot in my heart for the C. wren-I love the call-loud little birds. Love to watch them too.
