Looking At Birds In The Neighborhood

Most my birding took place at home last week.

We do have some interesting new neighbors to watch.

Two turtle doves survey the neighborhood each morning and evening from the poles and wires.

My favorite new neighbor is the Mocking bird who likes to hang out when I’m without my camera. I did get lucky a few times. 

Our backyard song star, the Carolina Wren returned to us. 

I’ve see a pair of them flitting about in the early mornings and evenings. And of course, our resident Cardinals and Robins still hang out with us. A little group of sparrows also flits about the neighborhood. Usually too busy to stop and pose for photos.

I did capture some photos after a brief rain a few weeks early. You can view those photos here.

Speaking of birds too busy to pose for photos, my son and I walked out the door one evening only to spot a hummingbird sitting on the wire! And probably the same little bird startled me as I sat on the front porch reading one night.

A Blue jay squawked to let us know he saw us as we checked on the garden another night. He was probably fussing at the cat more than us but maybe not.

And while not birds, I am super excited to see these creatures flying around the yards again:  My favorite, the Monarch butterfly!

Hope to see lots more birds and butterflies next week!

What birds have you spotted lately?

      Thank you! Hoping to get a few better ones in the coming weeks, next week’s a full-time working week so not sure how much birding I’ll be able to squeeze into things. Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday so far.

      I am really enjoying watching this one. We used to see them quite often and then, quit seeing them so I’m really happy to see one in our neighborhood again. Hope you’ve had a great Monday!

      The Mockingbird is fun to watch. I think you’d enjoy it. I like to watch and listen to the Collared Doves as well. Hope your week’s off to a wonderful start!
