Favorite Nature Shots from My Own Backyard – 2022

It’s awfully hard to pick “favorites” since I love to take pictures of the birds and the bees and there are literally hundreds (dare I say thousands?) to choose from! That said, I’ll start with a Northern Flicker drilling a hole in the snag… Continue Reading “Favorite Nature Shots from My Own Backyard – 2022”

Today in the Stream – a Ruby Crowned Kinglet and Anna’s Hummingbird

Home again, home again in the Pacific Northwest, and I’m already tending to the birds. Or shall I say Bob did the tending when he turned on the backyard stream and immediately this little bird dropped by. I had to look through my Peterson… Continue Reading “Today in the Stream – a Ruby Crowned Kinglet and Anna’s Hummingbird”

Hummingbirds in the Snow

We had snow yesterday – enough to stick and be beautiful – and the temperatures continue to plummet. I love snow but worry about the hummingbirds. So last night I brought the feeders in and returned them this morning; by midday they were frozen… Continue Reading “Hummingbirds in the Snow”

My Beautiful Anna’s Hummingbirds

I’m still on DC time so I woke up early thinking of the hummingbirds. I went out in my robe and boots to bring in the frozen feeders, returning them outside an hour later. The hummingbirds came immediately and rewarded me by posing. I… Continue Reading “My Beautiful Anna’s Hummingbirds”

‘Tis the Season for Hummers

November has come on strong and stormy as it often does in the Pacific Northwest. Perhaps that’s why I’m seeing more hummingbirds at the feeders; it’s easier for them to get their food fast and ready to go without fighting against the wind and… Continue Reading “‘Tis the Season for Hummers”

A Photoshoot with the Hummingbirds

I love my Anna’s Hummingbirds and it’s been a while since I featured them. So yesterday I scrubbed and refilled their feeders with fresh sugar water and sat to watch as they dropped by. (Click to enlarge) The male Anna’s is the only hummer… Continue Reading “A Photoshoot with the Hummingbirds”

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”
