Afternoon Photoshoot with the Hummingbirds

I must have let the feeders run dry. I saw the hummers land first on one, then the other before flying away. Sorry about that boys. I ran into the house to make the sugar water and cooled it quickly in the freezer. I… Continue Reading “Afternoon Photoshoot with the Hummingbirds”

What’s In My Garden?

Cats Tiger and Benji believe the backyard is their kingdom and who am I to tell them otherwise? Birds I dream of a world where cats and birds live together in peace. Until then I keep an eye on both. Bees and Herbs I’m… Continue Reading “What’s In My Garden?”

Watching the Hummingbirds with Benji

I heard the birds in the trees overhead and pulled up a chair to watch. Benji joined me on my lap. An Anna’s Hummingbird perched high above – perhaps he watched me too. I moved to the shed to hide from view and Benji… Continue Reading “Watching the Hummingbirds with Benji”

Bugs – It’s What’s for Lunch at the Wren’s House!

I had other plans today but was tired and decided to do some backyard birding instead. I could hear the wrens chatter so I pulled up a chair and positioned myself for a good look at the birdhouses on the garden shed. It wasn’t… Continue Reading “Bugs – It’s What’s for Lunch at the Wren’s House!”

A House Finch Courtship and a Hummingbird Flyby

I stepped outside today and heard the song of a house finch overhead. Truth be known it was not that melodious, he sang like a one-note Ned continuously and persistently. But it was enough to attract a female nearby and she followed him. While… Continue Reading “A House Finch Courtship and a Hummingbird Flyby”

Under the Trees in my Garden

For this week’s Sunday Stills challenge I thought I’d take you on a tour of my backyard garden much of which lies under the shade of giant Douglas Fir trees. When we moved to our house a few years ago the backyard was rather… Continue Reading “Under the Trees in my Garden”

Nesting Birds in the Garden

Our little garden shed has become quite the bird condo with wrens in particular nesting in the birdhouses my husband built. I wasn’t sure they’d be happy so close to their neighbors but it hasn’t deterred them. Every morning they’re out and about gathering… Continue Reading “Nesting Birds in the Garden”

A Night for the Birds

First of all I’m disappointed – I didn’t get to see last night’s lunar eclipse. Not for lack of trying. I did get up a few times looking for the moon but couldn’t quite locate it among the clouds. Oh well. To make up… Continue Reading “A Night for the Birds”

Happy Cats and Birds in the Garden

We must have brought the good weather back from California as we’ve had blue skies and sunshine all week here in the Northwest. In fact, we’ve had record breaking temperatures with Seattle reaching 80 degrees yesterday. I’ll take it. It would have been hard… Continue Reading “Happy Cats and Birds in the Garden”

Springing with the Birds!

I love this time of year when color brightens up the garden, starting with the azaleas. The birds love it too as they woo a mate and look for nesting places. Wrens and chickadees visit the tiny houses, and the choices are endless. “How… Continue Reading “Springing with the Birds!”
