Oh such beautiful images & colours - the Dove with his powdery blue eyelid, the Cardinal in brilliant red, stunning Blue Jay. All so gorgeous. Our budgie Jax enjoyed the music - he sang as I watched (Kate had left her lap top at home today, so I have been sitting in the kitchen with him as I checked blogs) :-}
Have a wonderful weekend Sherry.

Dear Deb,
I am so glad you enjoyed this!
This selection is called "Gol" translated to English would be "Flower". It is off the cd "Traditional Folk Music from Iran". The artist is Hossein Farjami. He palys the santoor, the oud and the daf. These are traditional instruments of the Middle East.
The birds seem extra bright this week. Must be the snow adding light.
Pats to Ben and an extra seed cake to Jax.
Enjoy your weekend too.
Our snow is melting.

Fantastic Friday! Another exquisite video - glad to read that your snow is melting. Ours has begun, at least for a couple of days but ten feet of snow will probably create floods and... I'm so looking forward to a dandelion or a green weedy thing!

Sherry, It is a wonderful collection of pictures. The MODO winking and the Cardinal kicking up the snow my favs.

Have a great weekend.

Mary said...

I liked the Modo winking, too :o) Sherry, for a gal who lives in the city, you have all the birds! They're all beauties but I'm partial to the woodpeckers - always. Stunning video and music selection. Not many people can capture the beauty of fog. You did, very well.

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Dear Sue,
Fun to do different music!
I could use a new to the backyard bird. I might have to venture forth a bit and capture some birds in a wilder location.
Ten feet of snow! I cannot imagine. No floods, slow melt...very slowly...yes, a weed would be nice. All of my 2 inches of snow should be gone this afternoon just in time for another blast of cold northern air tomorrow.
Winter will come to a close and we will have the joy of Spring. We just have to be patient.

Dear Lisa,
The snow helped this week with photos. I am ready for some new subjects! The Cedar Waxwings have not come in yet. I could do an entire slide show of them!
Nice today and cold tomorrow.
I want to get out and sweep the deck and do a bit of tidying up.
End of winter seems to drag out!
Doves are sweet!

Q said...

Dear Mary,
When the fog was thick last Monday I really wanted to take a photo!
I waited for the light to get just right and went out with all three lens. I was pleased.
I loved your spring buds and blooms. Too cold here for blooms of any sort. Please send some Waxwings!

Another relaxing video to end the week, Sherry. Thank you! Your birds are beautiful.

Q said...

Dear Chris,
Thank you. I do need to find some variety soon. It is to be warmish today so maybe I will venture forth.
At least we have different sort of music!
Have a great weekend.

I love photos of the fog...

Dear Mari-Nanci,
I enjoyed the challange of taking fog photos. Walking in the fog was most interesting. It was soft and dew like.
