My birds

I have been running this way
and that since coming
home from Texas.

After Weavers Guild meeting today I decided to sit with my birds.
The sun was out and the temperature had warmed to 50 degrees.

I was delighted to hear the calls of the
Downy Woodpeckers and the Cardinals.

White Breasted Nuthatch came to the deck
looking for nuts.

Little Tufted Titmouse came and went,
grabbing a peanut or a sunflower seed, making his little call.
Being back with my birds is so nice.
I missed them.

I still have pictures to process from Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge,
Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge and Aransas National Wildlife Refuge.
I am thinking about printing a photograph of a Green Jay for the travel room.
I finished the scrapbook. Now to finish the photogrpahs.

I know your birdies missed you Sherry because I did.

I will look forward to seeing all the photos you will share with us.

The green jay is fantastic. If I were you I would've printed it surely. I've only seen a blue Jay once in my life and the green one left me breathless as I saw it on your pic. I wonder how beautiful it must look in reality.
