When you share about the birds in your garden as often as I do, you become hard-pressed to find new titles for your post, hence the name above! Still, it’s not far from the truth.
The birds do indeed seem to live it up in my backyard where they have trees, housing, food, birdbaths and even a stream to enjoy.

Okay, so maybe Bob went a bit overboard on the birdhouses. At least that what I told him recently. Then again, they’re seeing a lot of action this summer.
The nuthatch was busy checking this one out high above the ground.
He also checked out a colorful, swinging, model as a chickadee waited nearby. It’s a tight market – you snooze you lose.
Whichever house they choose, they all appreciate the amenities offered in the yard
Splish splash they were taking a bath!
The brown creeper hides in plain sight – completely camouflaged! Not sure whether he’s interested in the new house mounted nearby.
There are no nesting boxes for the hummingbirds, they’re not cavity dwellers. They build their own tiny nests in the trees though I’ve never seen one.
Still they’re pleased to come to the feeders every day, often reminding me when they need a refill. The Anna’s hummingbirds are year-round in my yard, rain, shine, and even snow.
The males are the handsome ones with the ruby crown and neck. What female could resist him?
And that’s enough of the birds for today!
Until next time. 🙂
