Thanks to all of you who commented and entered. I've not yet begun something for April's giveaway so I better get busy! Thanks for all your positive support!


Easy-on-the-Eyes Skies

from an evening last week.
Across the back pasture.

With a bit of the front of the barn

And the butt-end of the barn

Back in front, one more time

And a little later, looking from the house across the pond.

Red-Belly

A male Red-Bellied Woodpecker at the feeder.

Lovely shock of red hair on his head.

And just a tinge of red feathering on his belly to give him his name.

A male cardinal shows up in the feeder hanging behind and sort of photo bombs the woodpecker.


Woodpecker moves to the platform dish feeder.




At least he gets this stage all to himself.

A Touch of Spring

For those of you hungry for the release of winter's grip, a few February photos from the cell phone.

Okay, so these first four photos are from LAST February, but I love this view up the pond.

Thelma (white dog) walks behind the house

A few Whistling Ducks perch on the limb balanced across old tree stumps.

And off they go!
The pastures are showing some green these days.
The yard, too.
And I think I see some knobby buds trying to form on the oak tree tips.
Numerous skeins of geese have been winging north the past few weeks.
And, finally, some Spring Beauties blooming in the yard.
Spring is coming, I promise! :)

Mini Gold Rush

of the feathered friend variety. American Goldfinches are still here, dining on thistles and a few mixed seeds.
