Hurray! I’m finally getting the chance to share another "Tuesday’s Show & Tail." This meme is hosted every week by Angela over at West Virginia Treasures, and it is always a lot of fun to see all the interesting posts of the people who join in! This is the 32nd one that Angela has hosted and she’s sharing butterflies on hers this week! It is a meme to share about past or present pets or furry friends we’ve known. If you’d like to join, here is the link to the Guidelines.
I love the spring time when all of the different kinds of birds return to our area. The air is filled with birdsong all day during this time of year. We have a lot of Bullock’s Orioles in this area. This one is a male.
Their hanging nests are all over in our trees. They use the horse’s shed hair and there is a lot of bright orange, yellow, or blue baling twine woven in.
The females aren’t as colorful, having just a small amount of color on their chests.
We have a lot of doves around all year round. I love to hear them cooing in the trees… I always hate it when it is dove or quail season, and hope that they will come onto our property where they won’t be shot at!
Here is a picture of a weird bird that showed up. It was green with red on it’s chest and looked sort of like a parrot. I guess one could have escaped from somewhere because they aren’t native to this area.
And there are more and more hummingbirds coming back to this area. I LOVE my new camera that can catch this little guy clear up in the topmost branch of one of the trees in our front yard…
And then I can zoom in to where you can see him pretty clearly.
