Love the Whistlers. And they are just like people - a few at the top and everyone else at the bottom, lol.

Sandra said...

are any of your whistlers kin to Nic Wallenda? the first few shots made me think of him doing his balancing act on the highwires around her. i love the way they are on tippy toes on the edge of the bird bath

DJan said...

My whistlers sure do look happy and content. Somebody takes really good care of them, and I love the last picture of them sleeping. :-)

Like a kingdom! The King and the Queen are sitting on the throne and around the people Oops! On the picture 4 they had a rebel :)

The whistlers are so cute - I wish we had them here as well. I probably would take tons of pictures of them as well. I especially like the close ups. Those white rimmed eyes and red bills are just adorable!

SweetMarie said...

the foot on the pedestal is so cute! I can't believe three can balance on the feeder together! a nap is so good after dinner! :)

Julia said...

They have really made themselves at home at your place. Just beautiful.

Birdman said...

What's the plan here? Tip the dish at the top and make EVERYBODY happy? They'll be whistling a very happy tune then.

Lisa Comperry said...

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, Neat to see the Whistlers taking a little nap after dining. Guess that behavior is universal. :-)

don said...

The Whistlers that are down want up whether there is room or not. The interaction between the whistlers is always fascinating.

You should mount a baby pool up there, so more of them can perch at a time ;-)

How many can fit on the feeder at a time? maybe the competition is for the best at balancing? Lovely series.

Looks like you had a little bit of a tussle there for a minute!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
That is quite a balancing act!
Sorry for having missed some posts but with the company of a dear Dutch friend there hardly is any time doing that... We enjoy her and will catch up later!
Sending you hugs,
Mariette

Kerry said...

I am ridiculously jealous of your whistlers. Why should they fly up here when they have such a good time there by you? Still, it isn't fair.

Margaret Adamson said...

Great fun shots of your Whistlers.Now the most i have seen on that bird bath is 3. I am hoping to see if more can fit on!

Paul said...

Oh gee, Wednesday again already...

That funky bird bath is the perfect setting for Whistler pictures!

Gunilla Bäck said...
