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”

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”

My favorite Little Backyard Birds

I love birds, all kinds of birds, especially those that visit my garden. The little chickadees live in the evergreens surrounding my home and I’m continually charmed as I listen to their call – chicka-dee-dee-dee. I don’t feed them as they seem to be… Continue Reading “My favorite Little Backyard Birds”

Rosy Red Flowers

Outside a light rain is falling and the beautiful white covering we enjoyed the past few days is drip, drip, dripping away and will soon be gone. So I had to reach deep into my archives to find rosy red flowers for this week’s… Continue Reading “Rosy Red Flowers”

The Promised Snow Has Finally Arrived

The hummingbirds waited patiently while I brought them fresh nectar; I’d forgotten to bring… Continue Reading “The Promised Snow Has Finally Arrived”

My favorite camera – the Sony RX10 my husband bought me almost 4 years ago – bit the dust. I can turn it on but after that everything is stuck – none of the controls work. It happened a few days ago when we… Continue Reading “Of Camera Woes and Cats and Birds”

Profiles in Hummingbirds

Yesterday I showed you the majestic Bald Eagles who come from as far away as Alaska to feed on the salmon in the Skagit River. Today I show you their tiny majestic cousins – the Anna’s Hummingbirds – who come to feed year-round in… Continue Reading “Profiles in Hummingbirds”

The Sun Also Rises

We saw torrential downpours on the first day of winter here in the Pacific Northwest. Those further north enjoyed the first snow though none of it made it to the ground at my house. But yesterday dawned clear and cold and temperatures rose during… Continue Reading “The Sun Also Rises”

Colors of the Pacific Northwest

Despite my dreams of a Winter Wonderland there’s no snow yet in the Great Northwest only rain, rain, and more rain. What’s a person to do? Time for an indoor project and it so happens I’ve got one. For the last couple of months… Continue Reading “Colors of the Pacific Northwest”
