A day for babies…

What a treat to wake up to clear blue skies!!! of course they say today was it…back to rain tomorrow…so tried to enjoy it while I could!

a little bit higher

the water has crept up a bit more, maybe a couple of inches higher on the marker post…

Barn Swallow gathering nesting material

with the sunshine, Barn Swallows were back gathering nesting materials..


there was actually a lot of bird activity down there today….a number of Cedar Waxwings (this photo taken in dense shade so kind of washed out)

an Oriole up there

there is a Bullock’s Oriole behind all those leaves…also saw Yellow Warblers and a Yellow-rump Warbler before a loose dog showed up and that was that!  Dogs aren’t supposed to be off leash here, but….

Fledgling Black Capped Chickadee

around home another Black-capped Chickadee family showed up today…here is one of the fledglings…

Figuring out a feeder

this one was learning about bird feeders….

later in the afternoon it was fledgling House Finch…..

White Crowned sparrow with nesting material

and proving that the nesting season is a long way from being over…this White-crowned Sparrow was busy collecting my dogs fur for nesting materials…the way she is shedding she could supply building materials for half the country!
