I spent the day in my garden, it just seemed like the thing to do today and boy oh boy am I glad I did!! I had a blast, thanks to the funny, interesting, beautiful critters that visit my yard. This is what I saw today:
There is a family of Norther Cardinals buzzing in and out between feeders and water fountain, and really - they fly low and fast and you gotta watch out!:
there were 3 male
and one female
Painted Buntings - they were playing in the bushes, mostly the males were fighting for the females but they visited the feeders on and off all day.
There was a pair of Grey Catbirds that were being coy jumping in and out of the bushes probably picking out the worms
This little family of Purple finches were a blast to watch! There was a Daddy and a Mommy and I think 3 babies that kept peep-peep-peeping their parents to feed them:
The humming bird buzzed by so quickly I couldn't see what kind it was! Looked like it was plain green though!
Then there is the Carolina Wren pair
- now these I love! How can such a small bird have such a LOUD song?? These sweeties are nesting in my moms mailbox (she lives across the street) and there are 4 little sweet babies in there, every time I peek they pretend that they can't see me!
and then there was this sweet surprise:
I was so surprised to see this, I think it's a Black and White Warbler. It was shy and didn't stay long :(
The little Titmouse family always visits the yard and there were several other finches that moved too fast for me to get my grips....like I said - I really enjoyed just laying back and enjoying myself
