Just a quick post this morning…I’m still going through photos from a very productive long weekend! On Friday I went over to my parents’ house. We heard the call of a Great-crested Flycatcher from a neighbor’s tree, so I grabbed my camera and went to investigate. He was sitting out in the open, perched nicely […]
My Northern Cardinals wish a very special person a very happy birthday today!
Rich cracked me up so hard and I just have to share the joke. Recently I finished editing this image and I took the laptop to him, asking “Can you tell?” His response was priceless. “I don’t know if there was a branch, and I don’t know if there was a bird!” Such are the […]
A cold front blew in migrant birds to Fort De Soto yesterday – lots of Bay-breasted Warblers, Indigo Buntings, tanagers, grosbeaks, and more!
I started to notice something funny in my backyard…all the birds like to pose on finials!
Fun photos of visitors at our backyard bird feeders – Painted Buntings galore :)
Painted Bunting portraits from my backyard
Mourning doves are the backyard birding clownarounds – they always make me laugh with their antics!
Backyard birding is best in early April – Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, warblers, Painted Buntings, a juvenile dove (already!), and a hilarious Brown Thrasher photobomb!
Happy Easter! Our backyard rabbits celebrated by doing the bunny hop (literally!)
Migrant Blue-gray Gnatcatchers passed through the backyard and posed for my camera. Their song was so different than our Floridian gnatcatchers!
The House Finches are back in the backyard with their bright red colors and cheerful songs
My first of spring Cedar Waxwings have shown up in the backyard, along with more beautiful Painted Buntings and American Goldfinches
Golden moments in golden light with my goldfinches!
Breaking news from Goldy’s window! An Eastern Bluebird visited this morning!
Happiness is… …watching the American Goldfinches turn yellow and play in your flowers :) … seeing the female Indigo Bunting from last weekend – she stuck around! … finally snapping a picture of the elusive Prairie Warbler who has been mocking you for the past three mornings, and as a bonus, getting to hear him sing! […]

Backyard birding paradise – Painted Buntings and goldfinches! I filled my memory card and exhausted my camera battery. Bonus Indigot Bunting!
Recently I spent a weekend morning in my backyard – rather unusual for me, since mornings are usually when I venture beyond the backyard. It was fun to see my yard in morning light. This is the time of year that I love backyard birding the best. Flowers are blooming, the air is fresh and […]
The joke was on me when I tried to con a bird into perching on pretty flower stalks
