A Good Bird for the Day!

I found a huge bush type tree in one of my three yards, I have no idea what it is...yet. I do know that it is a haven for a cornucopia of birds. I spent 10 minutes there yesterday while Daisy Lu and Ole roamed around causing quite a ruckus. There were Tufted Titmice, Carolina wrens, Cardinals, Blue Jays and this little fellow, a Black-throated Green Warbler who wasn't as bothered by the dogs. He was content to sit and preen and pose for photos! It was a perfect day and no scorpions to be seen!

My late congratulations with your move!! The house looks fantastic and you must be happy to have so many greenery around. Do you hear birds' songs from the inside?

I love the South! I mean, there are all sorts of birds everywhere...but you got different birds! That rocks!

What a plucky fellow. I'm so pleased you're all settling in there so nicely and what a place it sounds like to settle!

Have a great weekend!

Lovely photo of the Black-throated Green Evie. Sounds like a great stake out place you've found already! (-:

Hi Eve, I've lived here in North Alabama for almost 30 years and I have never seen one of those warblers- great find and capture! Very well done!

Mary said...

Wow...what a gorgeous bird! I've never seen one of those. Sounds like you have a really bird haven there. Show us photos of your bush and maybe we will know what it is....or not.
