Friends Of A Feather








It's been a little boring around here 
the last few days....
not much happening
on the ground.

It's a different story if you look up.

The birds have been arriving.
Feathered friends 
all flocking together and heading north.

The meadowlarks are here...
tough to see, but their song is loud and clear.



Today the yard was full of sparrows, gold finches,
house finches and 
black eyed juncos....






Sall filled the feeders and
accidentally spilled some thistle
by the front door...
as long as there were no predators
in the area, they were quite 
eager to come right up to the door
and clean up the spilled seed!




They did not know there
was a crazy bird killin' machine
on the other side of the door!



Maddie's mouth was watering 
when I told him to go back to his nap
and leave the nice birds alone.


And he did.




Sweet dreams dear friends.


Linking with Verde Farm for Farm Friend Friday

Hi Lisa,

I found you on Carol's Serendipity blog, where you asked about photo storage. I just bought a 1 terabyte external hard drive for $80 to store all my photos, as they were slowing down my computer. It just plugs into a USB port. It will back up your entire computer automatically at any time you set. You can also send individual file folders over to it, as you take your photos. It has helped tremendously!

Beautiful photos graphs on your blog! I must spend some time poking around & I ♥ ♥ ♥ the turquoise glass jar on your sidebar. I have something similar but without the lid. Very pretty!

Morning, love the bird photo's as I have never seen or heard of the black eyed juncos here in the UK!!

I love the description of "crazy bird killin' machine"!!

Have a great weekend, Jackie in Surrey, UK.

Oh, you have me jealous and now I am going to figure out how to get out and get my feeders filled. The song of a bird may be just the cure for these winter time blues.

Maddie looks like quite the bird killin' machine! Great photos!

How sweet! My dogs would probably not have been as hospitable. :)

Glad the songbirds are reaching you again! (And isn't a quiet week nice once in a while?)

Gorgeous photos! Love them!

It is nice to just sit and watch the birds and listen to them sing. Spring is slow to come this year, but it's coming. A little birdie told me so. :-)
