how about a group about the different birds that come into our gardens?

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.
Hi, everyone! I thought I would share one of the scenes from my backyard. Doves and house sparrows getting what fell to the ground.
Hope you get some nesters in your pretty new bird house Lillian. How fun to see the spring birds coming in. We have a nesting pair of Oak Titmice in one of the bluebird boxes. They just finished building the nest and I'm anxious to see eggs.
Lillian, love the birdhouse. Has anyone moved in? :)
Marlene, your bird is a female red winged blackbird...so different from the male but still a very pretty bird. Looks like the photo was taken in a grassy pond like area which is where they nest.
That sounds great Randy going for drives looking it's all in the excitement of not knowing what you will see !! enjoy your trips stay safe.
Your right Lillian I'll try and keep my eyes on the road and not drive in the direction I'm looking if my gaze should stray. I have been driving a lot of the backroads so I can stop in the middle of the road and just watch. Sometimes the drives are longer then they should be but that's the fun of being retired.
