In Case you Wondered





Why I love these little birds....I give you...the Common Yellowthroat. Many of them are just this tame and will come out to look at you while you look at them. I can often click my tongue and they will answer and come visit me.

We made it through the hurricane with just a little damage. My son in law and daughter worked almost non stop for 5 days first putting covers on windows for older people and then taking them off and storing them for the next time. They cut fallen trees up and cleaned peoples yards that needed help. There son worked with them and the daughter run the house, laundry, lots of wet dirty clothes to wash and all the other house chores. They were out of school 7 days and ready to go back this week. School is much easier and shorter hours. We were very blessed that the storm moved east a bit and we did not take a direct hit as perdicted. God is so good and sure blessed us this past week.

Thank you for that ID Marianne. I was struggling :)
Can't get over the birdy paradise you inhabit.

How adorable! I'm sure the birds sense the good vibes emanating from such a bird lover as you!

Jan, thanks!

Ellie, thanks for the update. We were worried about your family. What good people they are! I was so moved by the many acts of heroism and kindness I read about in the wake of both hurricanes. Take care.

Cathy, We ARE so fortunate and I am grateful every day. I went on a walk day before yesterday and was practically batting them away to get a look....well, not quite, but a Broad-winged Hawk popped out when I was watching warblers and wasn't ten feet from me. And ONE cottonwood had a Warbling Vireo, Eastern Phoebes, Black-throated Green and Magnolia Warblers, four Northern Flickers, American Robins, Blue Jays, Common Yellowthroats in the brush under it, Red-winged Blackbirds flying over, and that hawk. In one tree! I must have spent an hour getting a crick in my neck looking up. All through my morning the eight e. Phoebes I saw were beating up on other birds. I had no idea that they were inclined that way. Even flew down in the road to pummel Song Sparrows. Sure having fun. lol
