Looks like we are going to have another woodpecker family in our backyard. Actually this is in our neighbors backyard but close enough that I can see it from the chicken pen.


Note to visitor–We’ve moved! Our new blog is located at http://www.fowlvisions.com. Be sure to visit me over there.

The pictures above were taken on the 31st. Earlier today, April 1st, I went to check on my chickens and of course, the nest of wrens, and there was all kinds of chirping going on from the wren family. It seems our neighbor’s cat was spying on the babies as they were leaving the nest. Even the squirrels were screeching at them!

I ran the cat off but had to keep a close eye on it because it kept coming back over in our yard.

Anyway, the babies launched on April Fool’s Day! There will be no more baby wren pictures unless I find another nest. Next will be the baby chicks when they hatch, which is not far off.

Until the next entry…

If you have watched birds at one time or another you have probably seen one fighting with the image of itself in a mirror. It seems at our house the Tutfted Titmouse takes the prize for being the most aggressive.

This little bird is enthralled with my husbands truck mirrors. They are large and seem to attract them no matter where it is sitting.

These little birds are so much fun to watch. I don’t know what attracts them to the mirrors, but it makes no difference if it parked in the front or back yard, they find his truck.

Here is a couple of more pictures from some of my visitors outside my office window. There are actually two doves and they hang out in the bushes but do wander out occasionally. The size of them tells me they are young. Very cute!

These are pictures of only one of the doves. I will work at catching them both together in one shot.

Today it is kind of dreary outside but I will keep a close watch to see if I can find some of my other feathered friends doing some of their bird antics.

Until the next time…
