When I went out to help set up our Make-and-Take Tea and Project, Barb and I found time to take a break. (Especially after the tea!). She lives in the country and the birds were bountiful. And nesting!
So, here are a few of our Michigan birds. The redwinged blackbird is always seems to mark the arrival of spring, as much as a robin does.
Barb must have blackbird friendly food because these colorful little guys were everywhere!
They're feisty fellows, too! We witnessed more than one scrap among these fellows!
My favorite, and one of the fastest moving, was the red bellied woodpecker.
I don't know why they call these the red-bellied woodpecker. As far as I could see the had tummies white as snow.
But their heads were spectacular! That's a little sparrow next to him.
And of course the cardinal. We see cardinals year round here.
And year round, they are a favorite.
Of course, it all comes back to the new life. Pretty soon I'm thinking there will be a few more robins in Barb's neck of the woods!
The tea post will be coming up! Meanwhile, I may be spottier than usual visiting your blogs and commenting. Real life appears to be getting into the way of Cyber Life! A combination of travel, internet issues and a few other things are placing time at a premium. I'll do my best to keep up but might be slower than usual with comment replies!
