There are many more nature and bird blogs but these are some that I like because I like the bloggers and they all have very good blogs. I don’t know any of them personally but through their blogs and writings I get good vibes which gives me the feeling that all of them are truly real and nice people. Real to me means no pretense, honesty and, compassion.

Migrants (winter-spring) and Resident Birds.

These shots do not compare with Andrew’s photography of “All Down Here From Here.” See Andrew’s marvelous nature and bird shots and enjoy his remarkable sense of humor/humour at http://ajh57.wordpress.com/

These were shot with a 200mm lens and that is “all I can do for now.” I am not overly fond of these and I am sort of limited. 🙂 I find that I am always apologizing and I am sorry that I can’t stop my pea size brain, beady little eyes, and gnarled fingers from thinking, seeing, and tapping/talking. 🙂

Mockingbird

Mockingbird> State bird of Texas. A virtual band unto itself. Able to imitate so many sounds, even musical instruments.My yard birds,however, are not fine musicians. Lots of other bird imitations though. This bird’s wings are drooping for this day it had been well over 100 F. This is a repeat image posting.

 Carolina Wren is a resident bird. For non-birders that means year around. I looove this little bird. It often nests in a Hoya in a basket that hangs on the back stoop. I hear it singing almost everyday-even in the winter. Biologists say the life span of the Carolina is about one year. It is simply vulnerable to many hazards.

  Cedar Waxwing- migratory winter resident. I stood on my little electric cart to get these pics. They initially flew away when I drove to the holly but they returned about 3- minutes later. Those red berries were too enticing.

Cedar

Cedar Waxwing The bird and I exchanged a knowing glance. 🙂 I wondered if this one was the sentry for the flock.

a flock of 30 birds or so devoured the berries of this native yuopon holly in about 30 minutes. Greedy beauties. They were soundless as they alit, refueled and, flew away.
