A couple of photos
I have been trying to get the blue birds who have been hanging around. I guess they stay all winter. Someone told me they even stay in the houses, but I haven't seen any coming and going, but we sure have plenty around. We no longer feed the birds because of Leta, our barn kitty. She is a MAJOR hunter. We do have a bird bath in the dog yard/perenial garden, but it isn't the same attraction as a feeder. She does kill some birds, but mostly she is a mousing machine. We have so many mice in the fields around us, that keeps her pretty busy. The occasional bird might be one that just happens in her way. I have seen it happy.
Anyway, this pretty fellow arrived in the tree as I was waiting for the blue birds. We have a bunch of these around, too!!
