Happy birding and happy week, following a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!
My computer was broken and out of my hands for a few days and my first thought was, but what about my blogging.
It is amazing how much time we spend when we blog, but oh such enjoyment it is too.
The top image is of a Yellow-Rumped Warbler, that just happened to have completed a bath in the lake, before landing right in front of my lens.
The male Cardinal below was perched above a flock of ducks and geese that were eating bread that my husby was offering them.

Wild Bird Wednesday
A male Eastern Meadowlark sings early one morning over the fields where it's mate was nesting.
This same field has nests of Red-winged Blackbirds in the deep grasses.
A pair of Red-bellied Woodpeckers tried a couple of holes, before making their nest in the lowest hole of one of our Ivy covered trees, which lost it's top long ago~
I am thinking that this is a Hairy Woodpecker below, very similar to our Downy Woodpeckers, but a wee bit larger~
Once again Carolina, or Black-capped Chickadee, they look so much alike, and we have them both here~
Aah, we have bid farewell to the lovely Dark-eyed Juncos for a few months.
This one was sunning itself, just before the leaf foliage greened up~
At the site of the single Great Horned Owlet a couple of weeks ago, we watched as a territorial dispute went about with some Baltimore Orioles~

They have a nest with young ones, across the lane from us~
