Judith - thanks for the description. When I saw the young male (first pic), I had this fear for a moment that maybe he had contracted some weird mange or something - LOL!

Sorry about the Bluebirds, Sharon. I know how upset I get about situations like that. It seems so senseless and cruel.

That's great Paulette! :-)

I would like to have their cousins here too! Will put in a good word!

Hey Paulette, tell your mountain bluebird fledglings to fly up here to get to know their western bluebird cousins!!!
Comment by Paulette Griffith on July 13, 2010 at 3:24pm
The 3rd bird is just a house finch. The little bluebirds have the white eye ring---

We must have a mountain bluebird nest near. Three little fledglings came in for water.

Sorry to hear about your bluebirds Sharon. That is a very unfortunate part of the natural course of things. Perhaps your bluebirds will try again...

Love the photo of the immature cardinal. I've never seen an immature; looks like someone flicked it with a paint brush!

Defintely an immature cardinal. We have tons here so I can spot them immediately. No color to their beak, spotty color when it happens, very black eyes, sort of shaggy sometimes. They are cute to watch though.

I am usually too Tammy, and I don't mess with nature too much unless to try to add to it. I love the bluebirds though and they need our help, so... maybe people would like to read this:

BIG Dahlia Bloom

"Joseph, if you want to grow fabulous dahlias (not the low growing kind), they must be staked. What the hubby and I do is put in a tomato ladder and an 8 foot steel stake at the base of each plant at the time they are planted. We…"

Profusion Zinnias Still Going Strong

"Yes, I'm surprised, too, Linda that we still have so many blooms at this time of year. But I think it is all going to come to an end in a few days. I saw on the long-term weather forecast that the temperature is supposed go below…"
