Whistlers on Wednesday 130

Miscellaneous shots.

Sharing the lunch line.
Whistlers, Mourning Doves, Fox Squirrel

   
Hanging around in the growing grass.


 One afternoon, the sun gave a colorful backglow to this pair.



 And another pair at rest.

Morning Tex Oh I love the Whistlers. Hug B

EG CameraGirl said...

I get the impression that whistlers very rarely do anything without the company of other whistlers. :)

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Lunch line? I'm sure you're the nicest lunch lady around!

Love the lunch line and the one with his eyes closed taking a nap!

DJan said...

They certainly do look contented, don't they? And look at that green grass. You certainly green up when you get moisture there. :-)

Beautiful photos - so nice to see your grass so green and pretty.

Rose said...

I wonder who is the luckier...you for having them in your life, or them for finding your cafeteria? Just might be a tie...I know I sure enjoy seeing them. I like the idea of them being in a cafeteria line in those first shots...

KB Bear said...

Whistlers in the emerald green grass are truly beautiful!

Michelle said...

The sleeping duck is awfully sweet.

Birdman said...

Their coloring is even more enhanced by the sunlight.

Janey and Co. said...

I think those whistlers have found paradise!

bon bon said...

They sure know the definition of r&r. :)

Margaret Adamson said...

A bit of 'shut eye' go was going on in the last couple of shots and I see your green is very green.

Aditi said...

Refreshing post! As always, lovely captures! :)

Small City Scenes said...

So they are paired up--does that mean babies soon?

Of course they are sharing! They always brighten my day, even as the darkness of yet another rain storm approaches, darn it.

Lowcarb team member said...

Lovely pictures and the one of the pair at rest - love it that its eyes are shut !

All the best Jan

S. J. Qualls said...

It looks like they are picking pairs. Do you have any nests around?
I see you have a lot of mourning doves, too.

Midmarsh John said...

103 sets of Whistlers and they are still entertaining though by the amount of food they look as though they cost a bit to keep satisfied.

Miss Val's Creations said...

They look so happy!

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

You have a whole zoo!

♥ Łucja-Maria ♥ said...

Great series photoshoot.
I like very much.
As you already know, I love your geese.

Red said...

I like your feeding system where you have the feed put out in a line like you would feed cattle.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Living the good life at your place!!!

Nancy J said...

Heads above the tall grass, one eye shut, other open. This is a super pic of all time.

Stephanie said...

They are adorable. Lovely shots!

Mary Kirkland said...

They look very happy to just sit around resting.

Bob Bushell said...

I'll bet it should come to a loads of cash, either that or you own the birds store!

Phil Slade said...

Shades of contentment in those last two pictures. They're totally spoilt!

Paula said...

Your lunch line reminds me of the way John used to feed cubes to his cows. I would drive and he would sit on the tail gate doling out the cubes as we went. This keeps the bossy or long horned cows from hogging. Love your green grass.

bj said...

ahhh, the Whistlers...my favorite critters..:)

Halcyon said...

There's fun for everyone in your yard!

LV said...

How nice it would be if humans banned together and enjoyed each others' company like these birds.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Neck deep in green grass! Love how you get your critters to line up for their dinner ;)))!

Melissa said...

So much wildlife in your yard always. I suppose the dogs just know to leave it all alone.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

All are so cute! Do they stay all day, or maybe have other ponds to visit?

Our photos said...

Makes me smile ! Wonderful !

Brian King said...

LOL! That IS a lunch line!

Susan said...

Wow, what a crowd. So green and pretty too!

Michael Manning said...

Perfect to lighten up a Wednesday!

Julia said...

Yea, Whistlers on Wednesday make the week seem shorter.
Hugs,

Kerry said...

Your whistlers are always awesome. I bet some of the same individuals come back season after season? I hope so.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

Great reflections in that 4th photo. You must go through literally tons of birdseed.

Munir said...

What a difference the sun makes. Your photography is amazing.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

It's hard to choose, but I'll pick No. 5 and 6 for my favorites!

ThreeOldKeys said...

Seeing their sweet contentment must make you happy too!

Chandra Eswaran said...

If I were a duck, I would want that orange bill - so cute!
BTW - all photos have an even number of Whistlers.
Could that be sheer coincidence or a big complicated plot by the Whistlers? :)

Have a Great Day, Theresa!
Peace :)

Gert said...

Great photos! Love the lighting by the sun! You always have such great subjects!!

Debs said...

They all look extremely contented.
