The female Bluebird.
Red-headed Woodpecker. I could only get a clear shot of his back.
Looks like he's trying to decide which morsel he wants.
A Robin, looking sleek and handsome.
A Mourning Dove, whose voice is very distinctive.
Red-winged Blackbird. The red isn't showing up very well in this not so
clear photo, but I had to include him. They are a favorite and are
always around the pond and love the cattails.
Eurasian-collared Dove. He looks similar to the Mourning Dove
but is a lighter gray and has a black collar on his nape.
I spied a pair of Meadowlarks walking in the pasture, but they didn't stand still long enough to get a photo that was clear. I'll keep looking for them.
I just love birdwatching and the biggest thrill of all yesterday was seeing my first Bald Eagles! My hubby had gotten home from work and had joined me on the patio. We were chatting and watching the birds when both of us spotted a pair of big birds or hawks of some kind flying toward our house. We watched and saw the white heads as they got nearer and realized they were Bald Eagles. They were flying fairly low, too. I was so in awe that by the time I grabbed my camera and focused, they had flown over the house. What a surprise it was to see them! You can bet I'll be keeping a watch out for them again and try to be ready with the camera.
Have a good week, everyone. Tomorrow I'm going to be hunting for a new sofa.
Until next time...
