More Feathered Visitors

Our backyard is aflutter with birds since we put up the new birdfeeder which hangs on a wire between two palm trees. It’s almost impossible to get photos of the birds actually on it, as I have to go out of the screen room door, and no matter how quietly I try to open it, they always sense my presence and are gone in the blink of an eye. My best option is to lurk by my bathroom window and take a shot as they land on a tree.

We have two pairs of Cardinals who are regular diners at our little restaurant.


The beady-eyed Grackles descend in a gang and completely take over the feeder, whilst the other birds and Sammy squirrel hop around underneath picking up the seeds that fall to the ground.


Hubby and I are very excited to soon be going off on our travels again to England and South Africa. We’ll have happy family reunions and also there’s my Mom-in-Law’s 105th birthday to celebrate in August.

Happy Thursday to you all.

  2. Lovely to have the birds in the yard. Always enjoy our bird visitors as well. Enjoy the travels and have a safe trip and congratulations to mom in law – what an achievement!
    Take care and regards

  3. I’ve had the same issue with the screen door happen to me, Sylvia. The best I can do, since none of my windows face where our birds are, is sit and enjoy their beautiful musicals. Your photographs showcase their colors so well. Happy Mother-in-law Birthday Wishes. Safe travels ..!!!
