Seagulls – Just Because

I looked for a photo challenge to share my seagull pictures but came up short – I decided to share them anyway. Seagulls, like crows, get no respect. I like them, but then I like crows too. According to Wikipedia, “Gulls are resourceful, inquisitive,… Continue Reading “Seagulls – Just Because”

The Hummers of Summer

No not this kind, though there was that too – a ride through the woods in a genuine surplus army rig – but that’s another story. I’m speaking of the other kind – the hummingbirds that live in my yard and frequent my feeders… Continue Reading “The Hummers of Summer”

Today’s Chickadees in the Garden

Before the hummingbirds won my heart the chickadees had it already. Tiny, cheerful, and talkative they call to one another while feasting among the evergreen trees. Today as I sat with my camera – waiting for the hummingbirds to come and drink from freshly… Continue Reading “Today’s Chickadees in the Garden”

Birds and the Bees and the Flowers and the Trees

You’ll be seeing more of my backyard during these stay at home orders;  and fortunately there’s always something new with the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees!

The Changing Color of the Anna’s Hummingbird

I replenished the feeders yesterday so the nectar was fresh and plentiful during this week of snowy weather. I watched the first hummingbird hover nearby – apparently for a good look at me –  before swooping in dressed in camouflage of green and black. … Continue Reading “The Changing Color of the Anna’s Hummingbird”

The Snag and the Owl

Among the evergreen trees surrounding our home is a Western Hemlock that appeared to be dying.  We asked an arborist to come and remove it and he was willing to take it down, but encouraged us to leave a ‘snag’ for wildlife. If we… Continue Reading “The Snag and the Owl”

Of Cats and Gardens

I couldn’t pass up the chance to share a few of my favorite photos in response to Sunday Still’s Photo Challenge. I’ll start with a picture of sweet Benji on my lap in the garden. Yes, it’s the same one that made it into… Continue Reading “Of Cats and Gardens”

Stalking the Hummingbirds

They don’t seem to mind. I hide behind a nearby tree and wait for them to appear. Sometimes I wait in vain and when I return to the house they come and feed.  So who’s watching who? Occasionally they indulge my passion – as… Continue Reading “Stalking the Hummingbirds”
