I love sharing in this meme that Angela over at West Virginia Treasures hosts each week. I’ve made several new friends, and gotten to read about some interesting animal stories and pets they’ve seen or lived with! Angela’s idea is to allow people to share about past or present pets or furry friends we’ve known or just pics of animals with stories to tell. If you’d like to join, here is the link to the Guidelines.
Well, Spring has definitely come to our area of the world. The birds have all returned from their Winter homes and are singing in the trees and bushes, flashing their beautiful colors, building nests and raising babies!
We have some of the prettiest bushes on our property near the ditch in the side pasture, that bloom all over with beautiful yellow flowers when we get a lot of rain, and we’ve had plenty of that this year, Praise God!
These are called Chaparral or Creosote bushes. Robert was able, the other day, to get some good pics with my new camera of a hummingbird feeding on one.
Here is another, closer shot from a different angle…
We have another place in our enclosed back patio where some birds had built a nest. Robert took a picture a few weeks back of it with this egg in it.
Baby birds hatched out and grew and this week, they spent several days sitting on some of the wiring near the roof.
Their parents would go out and hunt for food and then bring it back it to them.
Here is a picture of Mom sitting with them on the wire. They drive the dogs crazy because they can’t reach them! :)
