I think blue birds are so pretty! Do most of your birds stick around all year, or do they migrate south? I'm not real certain of your climate...

Janey and Co. said...

Oh that is a sweet one!

Margaret Adamson said...

That bird bath of your gets really good use.

Two birds. Lively and artistic.
Which is more beautiful? Of course, that created by nature.

He looks a little rough and ready, but I suppose he will develop much more attractive feathers in a while.

In the human world, youth is where the attractiveness is. Not so in the bird world! They have to mature their way into it.
