My Little Nuthatch

I love all the birds that call my garden home including this little charmer – the red breasted nuthatch. I often hear his energetic ‘ank-ank-ank,’ before I see him in the branches of the Douglas Fir tree above, looking for insects, or walking down… Continue Reading “My Little Nuthatch”

Living it Up with the Birds!

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… Continue Reading “Living it Up with the Birds!”

Monday in the Garden with the Cats and the Birds

Heat wave’s over – hooray! I prefer my blue skies with a few clouds. After the longest string of high temperatures in Seattle history (mid-nineties 6 days in a row) our normal summer weather has returned. This morning I sat in the backyard with… Continue Reading “Monday in the Garden with the Cats and the Birds”

Summertime in the Garden

Finally! The summer solstice arrived this week bringing sunshine and the hottest days of the year to the sun-starved, rain-drenched Northwest. It was a busy day in the garden, but not for me, I just sat and took it all in – the birds… Continue Reading “Summertime in the Garden”

Remembering the Beautiful Allen’s Hummingbirds

Another cold and rainy day in the Pacific Northwest and the blue skies and sunshine from Southern California are only a memory. Still memories are meant to be enjoyed, are they not? I love hummingbirds and one of my favorite memories from our recent… Continue Reading “Remembering the Beautiful Allen’s Hummingbirds”

Summoned by the Hummingbirds

It’s been a cold and rainy spring, so I haven’t been out in the garden much, nor paying enough attention to the hummingbirds. They let me know it. I was recently summoned from my office on the third floor of our house. I’d let… Continue Reading “Summoned by the Hummingbirds”

Birds of Coulon with a Shoutout to the Coot

Of all the waterfowl I’ve seen at Coulon Park – the seagulls the ducks canadian geese and great blue heron. The one with the greatest numbers gets the least respect from me – always in the background and never featured. Apologies to you american… Continue Reading “Birds of Coulon with a Shoutout to the Coot”
