That Little birdhouse I got I was hoping some little finches would take up residence , I did see some a few weeks back in the garden. But somehow I think the larger birds here will keep them away!!!!

Marlene that pic is gorgous love the way it is framed beaut shot. Connie I think the swans are so elegant of the birds we have the black ones here. Looks like the dove and sparrows are having a good feed you can count on them to clean up Doris.

Beth, thanks for identifying Marlene's bird photo- I have never in my life seen a female red winged black bird!!! I just assumed both male and female were all black with the red shoulder strip.  She's beautiful! And a very nice photo, Marlene!!

Haha, Randy!  I do that too, but hubby always freaks out when I stop in the middle of the road!!  What they hey, nobody's behind....  LOL.  I brake for wildflowers and sunsets, too!

Marlene, I love that splash of red on their wings.   I see the females at my feeder but no males...not sure why. But I do see them in the marshes.  Doris, I've heard that too.

Oh my gosh, Heather, those birds are gorgeous!

Marlene, my stepmother always said that the true harbinger of spring is not the robin but the red-winged blackbird.
