I came across some spring bird
that I forgot to share with you!
forget that it is a bazillion degrees out there
go back to spring days with warm , gentle breezes with me....
A Bohemian Waxwing in the apple blossoms:
My wonderful Baltimore Oriole, who stayed here about a month and flew on to better grape jelly, no doubt:
Wait a minute....do I have grape jelly on my BEAK????
(The waxwing refuses to look at that silly grape-smeared Baltimore Oriole beak, and opts to look out at the lake instead....)
But all that Baltimore Oriole beak-smacking broke down his willpower, so he began to munch on apple blossoms instead!:
Which immediately attracted the hungry BlueJay. Because, as everyone knows, EVERY bluejay is hungry!:
Which THEN attracted the catbird!:
I just love spring for the different varieties of birds we get in the yard...
lately it has been much quieter...
some Grackles, some sparrows, some chickadees, robins and a few hummingbirds are still here...
You know what THAT means????
To get our bird fix...
