I really enjoyed your slide show!!! Wonderful bird photos.
Beautiful music too. Is that Jim Brickman?

Q said...

Good Morning Marnie,
Thank you.
Our artist today is George Winston playing the song "Joy" from the cd, "December".
The birds continue to bring joy into my world hope they are bringing joy to yours.
Joy and great cheer,

I've always enjoyed Mr. Winston's music - it surely makes a lovely video when combined with your spectacular photos! Thank you!

Wendy said...

I thoroughly enjoyed this. Your birds are so brightly coloured against the snow or tree branches.
That saucy squirrel looks like he's getting ready to throw snowballs at us! LOL!

Nice music. It sounds similar to another piece of music called "Ode to Joy" . Beautiful!

Sherry, I just loved the photo of the squirrel with the snow in front of it. All of your pictures are marvelous of course. I liked the music too. It was very uplifting.

Thank you Sherry for this gift!

Hi Sherry,
Bravo! I love your slide shows. I have never see that last bird around here. What is it? It is so cute.
Big hug stay warm.

Q said...

Dear Cheryl,
Thank you!
Glad you had your hot tea since it was rather cold today!
Winter videos do have a crispness to them!
Enjoy planting all you trees.

Dear Sue,
George Winston does a great job setting the mood.
I watched the slide shows I did last December and I see I have about the same birds. Although this year Mockingbird is not around. I think the Jays or the Robins ran him off. I hope he finds his way back to me. I do enjoy his friendship.

Q said...

Dear Wendy,
I am so tickled you enjoyed this slide show. This rendition of "Joy" could be "Ode to Joy" it says on the cd it is in the public domain.
Stay warm,

Q said...

Dear Marmee,
I think I could create slide shows for a living! I love making them.
Thank you for watching them and enjoying them.
Sounds as if you are warm and cozy,

Q said...

Dear Lisa,
I was so pleased too have the snow this past week. It was fun to be out in it.
Glad you had your first snow too.
Thanks for enjoying the slide show.

Dear Mel,
Thank you for coming by and leaving a comment. I know you are a very busy girl right now.
Know I am sending lots of great energy and happy thoughts as you finish up your thesis.

Q said...

Dear Grammy,
The last bird is a Tufted Titmouse. There is a pair that comes to the feeders. I think they are very darling birds.
The sun is out this morning but the wind is blowing...I want to be out withthe birds but I might wait until it warms up a bit more. There is a Red Breasted Nut Hatch zipping about. I would love to get a few photographs!
Thank you for coming by and enjoying the slide shows.

Deb said...

Your slideshows are a joy to watch and listen to. Thank you Sherry.
Kate says hello :-) School/work has kept her from blogging but I keep her "updated" on our favourites :-)

Q said...

Dear Deb,
Thank you. So happy you enjoy the slide shows.
"Hi" to Kate. I bet she is busy. Grad school is lots of work. Her Christmas decorating looked so lovely.
Hope you are staying warm and having fun preparing for the Hoilidays.
I think of you and Ben often. I think of you walking with Ben in the park on snowy days.

Naturegirl said...

How can we not have a feeling of Joy looking at these glorious images!!
Happy day..hugs

Marimoy said...

fantastic as always... I hope the tea helps you! Feel better!

Mary said...


Your birds are beautiful. Really, they are more beautiful at your house.

I wonder...I picture you sitting on the deck wrapped in a blanket and felt hat. Are the birds landing right in front of you on the deck rails? If so, it's very magical!

I loved this slideshow.


Cheryl said...

Dear Sherry....have just read on Mimi's comments that you have a bad cold.......I hope that you are feeling better soon.....

Take care.......

Q said...

Dear Anna,
The birds have been so beautiful this month! They do give much joy!
Hope you are warm and cozy.
Do be slipping and falling.

Q said...

Dear Mimi,
Thank you! I do feel a wee bit better. By evening I am ready to rest.

Q said...

Dear Mary,
As a matter of fact, I am sitting on my deck wrapped in my boiled wool blanket with one of my new felted hats on when the birds come. I usually have a cup of tea or coffee. The birds come to the deck railings and say "good morning." They get their breakfast and go on. Sometimes one will stay and sing a song.
For the most part the birds will come and go all day long. I feed them around 9 am and again in the evening. If they need something one will tap on the back windows or come to the widow sill at my office window. I have seen the woodpeckers come to the kitchen windows when the suet is gone.
They know where I am!
Today, since it was so cold and snowy, I had to sit inside and watch out of the back door. I still have a cold.
It was nice to see so many birds, I would say there was over a hunred today...
They are magical.

Q said...

Dear Cheryl,
Thank you for your warm wishes. I do have a cold! I have such a sunny disposition that no one knows I do not feel very well.
Thank goodness for the birds and hot tea!
