Have I mentioned, I love birds?
I think birds are wonderful and fascinating creatures.
Have you ever watched a mother bird fly around with her babies? This is a fun sight to watch.
I love the color of these blue jays. This photo is not very clear, it was taken through a window, these guys have the keenest hearing.Love the sounds a cardinal makes. My neighbor (Mrs. Masters) once told me that a cardinal hangs around a one mile radius to where it was born. I never looked this up , just take her word for it. There are a lot of these birds around. I call them black crows, actually they have a different name than that but don't remember what it is. These birds are really big in size and they like to fight and carry on. They are beautiful all the same. I also love old bird houses, these old houses stay outside in case they have bugs and such.
These birds are black but they have the most beautiful color on the neck area, a shiny blue/green color, fantastic!
A nest rocking in the wind (believe me, the wind blows pretty good here off the lake). The birds make them this way, birds are smart.
Last year a mother dove lost her baby out of the nest. For days she protected this baby but in the end a cat had the last word. I was sick about this. The nest was to far up in the tree to put it back for her. (Mr Nook heard about this for several days). I also understand that morning doves keep the same mate for life.
Beautiful oriole, this bird comes every single morning around 11:00 am, it sings so beautiful.
