Not all of you are bird lovers like I am - so if looking at birds is not something you enjoy seeing or reading about - just go on to another blog.
However, for the rest of you I have some new pictures of some of the birds coming around the Watkins' house now. Oh by the way, the two geese and their babies have not been around for about a week now....don't know what happened. But another couple (Jack and Jill) have two small babies and they are on the pond. They have not come to the back yard yet...but maybe in time they will realize what a gourmet meal awaits them in the form of the bird food we put out. Well, maybe not really gourmet but better than the average meal they obtain from digging around in the grass and weeds.<
This is the best I could do to get a picture of these bluebird eggs. The birdhouse is small...so I just stuck my camera in and snapped...this is what I got. The humming birds arrived about three hours after I put out the feeders. They are certainly interesting to watch with their buzzing around. So far I have counted just three - but will probably have more as the season gets warmer.Another favorite bird of mine.
Each year we have a barn swallow that raises babies in the corner of our car port. The other day I counted 5 or 6 eggs - can't remember which) - next time I looked in the nest there were babies. In order to take the pictures I used a hand mirror to reflect the babies and then used my camera to take a picture of the mirror...all the time standing on my tippy toes.
Until next post - enjoy the blessings of life!
