So long since I've been on that I'm not sure if I've put these up before.  Sorry if they're repeats.

Love those little song sparrows.  I'm wondering if they could sound a bit like a canary.  Here's a cute little willie wagtail.

I just looked them up they sing a pretty tune!!!! I was amazed at the alarm chirp they have when predators are about.

No Lillian, the song sparrows are not pests. Now the squirrels....

I have just been back 10 pages sneeking a look at pics there are some beautiful stunning shots there and a large variety of birds. I loved the squirrel pic and the hummer with the water droplets just awesome. So many pics I can't comment on everyones  but all have some beaut shots. Nice to see your birds that we dont have here Iam going camping at easter and hoping to do alot of bushwalking  and hopefully have some nice bird shots to share with you all.

I look forward to the return of the hummingbirds...I notice the males come first, then the females a week later.

I have year long tiny Finches (can't locate the exact name), Chickadees, lot's of songbirds. My biggest excitement is that I drew a Northern Flicker. Oh, how I would love to have a nesting pair. I think I have a pair of nesting Robins somewhere close. I have 2 Bluebird houses, but I read a person trying to draw a nesting pair should hang 6 ~ 8 around the yard.Jim built a new one yesterday, and hopefully we can get it up in time. They are the earliest nesters here. I am just happy that I planted a tree sapling the first year. It now shades my front yard, and my front birdbaths are right under it. I planted a lot of 2 yr. shrubs that are now quite large. I have quail galore! The great thing is that birds add beauty and song and antics to my day. Hope all of your birds sing to you today, Marian

Hummingbird rescue

Grafting Hibiscus

I've grafted a few of my hibiscus bushes and amazingly some have taken. Trying to find out how long before  I see flowers on grafted branches? I haven't found anything specific on internet and even contacted the master gardener association in San…See More
