Some Birds Just Pass Through in Early Spring

 I love the contrast..this year's green, last year's red.


Mr Red Headed Woodpecker off in the trees.

Mr Cardinal and to his right Mrs American Goldfinch.

 Red Winged Black Bird..usually at roadsides.

A pair of Yellow Belly Sap Suckers  (wish the pic was better)
 
I'm putting my Hummingbird feeders out this weekend

The woodpecker is so different from the ones we have. I love the pattern and coloring of it.

Dear Deena, Beautiful soft bird pictures. I love the one with the cardinal and the other sweet little bird and the angel praying over them. I hope you're wonderful today.....or close!!

Hi Deena,
You sure know your birds. I've gotta get a bird book I think.
We have a pond we had dug a couple years ago and it is FULL of water; doing great now. We had 5 wild ducks coming, every day. Now we haven't seen them but I bet they are setting on eggs somewhere. We also have a big crane who comes.
I want to bring more birds to my garden this year. Think it's time to pick up some more feeders.
I love my visits here, it's so peaceful, and you have many feathered visitors!!!
Have a wonderful day!
Lea

I forgot..
I LOVE that angel as well!
I like what Diane wrote about it praying over them.... ;)

Do you have a St Francis in your garden?

Cheryl said...

Lovely post Deena......felt connected to it for some reason.....

Hummingbirds, how delightful. I can only dream of them....we do not have them here.....

I look forward to seeing yours.......

Jayne said...

Oh, can I borrow your pretty Red-headed just for a day? :c) No hummers here yet, but know they'll show up any day now.

Thank you for the ruby-throated report- I am putting mine out now, as I see they've already been spued in my area!! (I thought it was way too early.)

Hi Deena, I'm Becky and found you through Tami at A Girls Gotta Nest! I was just thinking in my last night...aren't there any bloggers our there that just love nature as much as I do? Well I've found one!! YAY!!

Now my blog isn't a nature blog, but part of that is because I just didn't know if there was much interest in it! I am going to add more posts and images of nature. It gives me such pleasure!

Your photos and blog are beautiful!! I will definitely be back often!!

Joyful blessings,
Becky

Have a great day!

Deena,
I am anxiously waiting for the hummers. In New York, I usually get them mid-May. Seems too long to wait!
I always love my visits here. It's fun to see what's in your beautiful woods.
Love, Debra

I just got done scanning threw all of your pictures and they are all so beautiful. I saw something new in just about everyone of them, that I didn't see the first time I saw them. It's so nice to come and visit some really neat friends. I love you!
love~

Can anyone recommend the top performing Network Management system for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: N-able N-central endpoint security
? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!
