Beautiful Spring Bird Sightings

A pretty Hermit Thrush perched amid berries

A rusty-capped Chipping Sparrow pauses atop a fence post

This handsome Eastern Bluebird pair are spending their second spring with us nesting in one of our bird houses

A Red-winged Blackbird shows off his best feature

A striking Eastern Towhee among the tree blossoms

A female House Finch croons merrily

A Northern Cardinal shows off her lovely feathers

A glorious morning for a bath at North Pond

A Yellow-rumped Warbler rests upon a fallen tree

Wow! The photos all look as if they were taken out of a National Geographic magazine. Great work!

A most gracious thank you for all the kind sentiments and support. I still have a lot to learn about blogging, as this is all new to me. I am extremely touched by your especially thoughtful comments.

You may have a lot to learn about blogging (although you sure are off to a great start), but you could teach us all a lot about photography. These photos are WONDERFUL! Thanks for sharing & I am going to keep a lookout here.

Levei algum tempo, mas consegui chegar aqui. Gostava de adquirir uma D7 mas agora as coisas não estão para aventuras. Vou continuar com a minha Cânon 1000, e contentar-me com as minhas e satisfazer-me com as tuas. Adoro as tuas fotos e a tua abertura em relação a propriedade.
Antes da guerra em Angola, também tínhamos uma grande propriedade, tirava muitas fotos mas, ficou tudo para traz por causa da guerra.
Vivo no Algarve mas tenho uma casa com terreno de 7000m2 em Coimbra.
Vivo feliz e espero o mesmo de ti.
Beijo e abraço mais um sorriso.
