Day 10 is for the Birds!

WordPress notified me yesterday that I was on a 9 day blogging streak.  I don’t normally pay much attention to their notices but since this was my longest string to date I thought I’d make it a perfect 10 with a post for the birds.

These beautiful nuthatches live in my yard in the evergreen trees.  I love to watch them walk up and down the trees hunting for insects.

They often come down for a drink and a bath in the stream or one of the birdbaths.  This one found a suitable place to drink on the picnic table where water had pooled after I’d been spraying with the hose.  Those are my dahlias in the background looking rather artsy in the sunshine.

This little wren made an appearance near the stream one day.  They’re so fast I don’t usually get a picture of them.  They live in the nearby shrubs.

Finally, I’ll close with a couple of crows.  I saw them one night when I went down the street to take a picture of the sunset.  They were still there as I was coming back and I liked their silhouette.

And that will officially end this 10 day blogging streak.

See you next week! 🙂

  1. WordPress notification was definitely beneficial this time l, isn’t it… those tiny birds are so pretty 👌 👌

  2. The crows usually wake me up at 5, with their noisy racket! I’m never inclined to take photos of them that early. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Our nuthatches are white bellied. We also have a house wren this summer. Fun photos. Thanks.
