Mark, love the owls, baby is so sweet and fluffy.  Was sitting out one evening and an owl landed on our street light but could not see what kind it was.  We do hear them at night.

That's funny!

Yes Sharon, they really do tear them up around here, there are wetlands around, so there are many trees that the bugs live in and draw all sorts of woodpeckers! Uh, even our front porch supports before we re-built them!

That's a great picture of the kestrel, Mark. Do you have a nestbox? I hear you can mount one for kestrels.

The 2 hawks on the fence are Kestral Falcons. They return to my yard every year.

I was so thrilled yesterday when I saw a cardinal and a blue jay.

I live in se texas and for some reason birds any type has been extremely scarce, may be the humidity?

what colorful birds!!!  Love that big ole pileated woodpecker.  I have lost most of my small bids, i.e., chickadees, finches and titmouse and I think it is because I have so many bluejays this year.  I have seen them take baby titmouse and I think they have scared off all the smaller birds.  I love my bluejays but think I will stop putting out the peanuts for them as that seems to be what is drawing them in.  Maybe my small birds will come back then.

Pretty Summer Scene

"Thanks, Lyn. I'm sure you'd agree that it doesn't really feel like work when you enjoy it (except for later when the back and knees start to ache!)"

find the hummer

"I've found that the "trick" to getting decent pictures of hummingbirds is to use a camera with a really good zoom lens. When the hummers are around, I zoom in and fix the focus on the birdfeeder and then snap the pics when the hummer…"

Blue and Purple Blooms on Same Plant

"Thanks Lyn. Agreed, Lorraine, that these colors are soothing on a hot day. This hydrangea is planted on the shady (northeast-facing) side of the garden, which keeps it from getting scorched on really hot days."
