A Few Of My Favourite Things

As we are nearing the end of June, I will share a few more spring photos.
Spring, when the birds return and can be seen in abundance on my yard, is one of my favourite times of the year.

What's not to love about the little Chipping Sparrow?  He may be small and not brightly coloured,but I still love having them around in spring.


Sometimes I think I need some signs on the bird feeders. This is an Oriole feeder and not a Downy Woodpecker feeder.


This White-crowned Sparrow just couldn't be any cuter. I'm pretty sure he is checking out the activity just below him, but that cocked head makes for a pretty pose.

Ok, so this is not a bird, but the baby Bison are just so sweet. 


Pull up a chair and sit a spell.I'm sure the Harris Sparrow will move over and give you some room.


Something To Think About:
As the sign in one of the above pictures says:
Cherish Life's Simple Pleasures.

I am the same, Ruth. I love opening the windows in the morning and hearing the birds chirping outside.

I've never seen a Harris Sparrow, this is a treat. But my favorite has to be the little White Crowned Sparrow. Both cute and beautiful.

We enjoy our birds so much and we have quite a variety too...but not all these different kinds of sparrows...they are so adorable. I never get tired of watching the birds but I must admit, I have never seen a baby bison! How cute is he/she??

I so enjoy your bird pictures, Ruth. Of course, the baby Bison is darling, also. Have a nice day.

I truly believe that simple pleasures are the best.

Hi Ruth, Loved all the photos. First one reminded me of old favorite tune ... "His eye is on the sparrow ... I know he's watching me." Hope you have a great weekend ahead! John

The last photo looks like it was perfectly staged for you. Such delight are the little birds... and the little bison too of course!

Betsy Banks Adams said...

You have some gorgeous bird pictures... I laughed at your saying that you needed to put up signs.... ha

Love Chipping Sparrows. We have them around here but I haven't seen in recently.

Hope you are having a wonderful Summer.
Hugs,
Betsy

Great series of bird images. The Harris's Sparrow would be a rarity where I live but all the others are familiar backyard birds. Chipping Sparrows are delightful little birds, probably under-appreciated.
