Karen S. said...

Thanks for the day brightener! I'm still stuck inside, while hubby is trying to dig us out! Yikes, this winter is becoming a snowmare!

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, enjoy your visitors to your pond, lovely pictures with the pond reflections, Francine.

MarkD60 said...

The first, second and fourth pics look like a duck rock and roll band album cover, but the third picture shatters the illusion.

Beautiful whistlers...love their reflections. Like getting two for one almost. The first two do remind me of that Normal Rockwell Gossip Girls...

I see some sort of a whistling fetish. Whistlers on Wednesday, Weekend Whistlers, Whistlers on windy days, Weekday Whistlers...

Dear Tex, I think you have become the world's leading enthusiast of Whistlers! Thanks for sharing your great bird community!

Do you hear them all day long? They are so pretty, but must be noisy too. Never thought about that part before.

Love it!!!

we took a picture from a distance with the cell phone. we need to look for it again and take a picture with our camera.
the day we don't take our camera with us is the day a amazon king fisher comes flying by.

Looks like your Whistlers are all doing well.

Helma said...

Beautiful reflections TexWisGirl

Raggedy Creations said...

the reflections are neat

Leave It To Davis said...

Do they whistle while they work? I wonder if they agree with the saying that a whistling woman and a cackling hen will surely come to no good end.....

Lynda said...

If I had never seen your blog, I don't know if I would ever have seen this bird - - - who looks painted by hand rather than real - - with the brilliant browns and that "unnatural" color of beak. It looks like something a girl would pick out of a box of 64 Crayolas and that's one reason they are so much fun to view.

bon bon said...

have the juvies bills turned pink (coral) at this point?

Elaine said...

Beautiful reflections!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...
