"You Can't Hide from Me"

Look at that gorgeous male Cardinal!! He thinks he is 'hiding' in the Rhododendron bush..... NOT!!!!! "I see you, you beautiful birdie!"

My little Yellow-rumped Warbler is still hanging around the feeders. He seems to be alone --since I have never seen more than one of them. However, he is getting his summer colors now.

The Warbler loved that big bite of suet!!!! Isn't he cute?

I have so many pictures of my Bluebirds that I have a hard time choosing a favorite. These little birds are just so gorgeous and they will sit still for their portraits!!!! Don't you love the beautiful color of the males?

Mrs. Bluebird wants us to know that she is just as pretty!!!!! She just has a little more gray than blue ---but I love both males and females. They have not started nesting yet---but they usually don't until April or May. Mine usually have two broods a year (late spring and early summer).

Two unusual birds were at the feeders this week---but I wasn't able to get a picture of either. On Wednesday, a big Robin (probably the one who came during the winter) returned for a visit. And then yesterday, a Northern Flicker stopped by --but didn't stay long enough for me to get a picture. Neither Flickers nor Robins come to bird feeders very often --so these were both surprises.

Birding is wonderful... I am so glad that my friend LINDA from PA has put out feeders and is now taking pictures of her birds... See how much fun this birding can be?????

Have a great Thursday.
