Florida Sandhill Crane. Some of these beauties feeding down by the lake Sunday afternoon
Just got back from a wonderful visit with my daughter, her husband, and their two little chipmunks. They are living in England, just down the road from Cambridge. Had a great time! Went to a great Pub in Cambridge, the EAGLE. Lots of history, a DNA announcement 1953, some great food and drink. Wish it wasn’t so far away, would love to go back for lunch and a pint! And, to see my daughter again!
Had a great visit with my Daughter who is living in Ely, England. What a beautiful town and area. Lots water fowl with young ones this time of year.
Took this today thru my Sun Room Window. A beautiful Pine Warbler….wait? Or is it a Yellow-throated Vireo? My guess is “Pine Warbler.”
I have been seeing some Female Painted Buntings show up the past several days. Not as colorful as the Mails but a pretty light Green. I was looking at one that I thought was a Female, but after close examination, I believe it is a “Young Male”? The bright colors seem to be coming out on the stomach/chest area and around parts of the head. Some adult Females and some young Males, I think?
A Male and a Female, CAPE MAY WARBLER, have been checking out my Oranges, Grape Jelly, and Sweet Flowers, the past two weeks. Only the second or third time I have seen these beauties in my backyard and they have never stayed so long. I am very happy with that. I have to take my pictures thru my Sun Room window as they take off if they see any movement.
I am still being entertained by the colorful Goldfinches. They have been very plentiful this winter. Another bird that is hanging out with the Goldfinches are the Pine Siskins. Cute birds with yellow patches or streaks on their wings and tails. They are also a winter bird for Florida but I don’t remember seeing these […]
Cow Birds! They have taken over my feeders! They come in 20, 30 + and eat all of the bird seed, & scare the other poor birds away. The other birds don’t have a chance! Any ideas on how to discourage this mob?
Has anyone seen any Goldfinches lately? I have only seen one Goldfinch, a female, a couple of weeks ago for a day or two, and nothing since. Usually I have lots of them this time of the year?
