I have some catching up to do on my pictures! These are all photos taken out my front kitchen window. The little crab tree is a stopping place for all kinds of birds and bees. This bumblebee lumbered his way through the blossoms a few days ago:
I have seen more of the usual suspects: goldfinches, blackbirds, cow birds, and savannah sparrows. This was the first time, though, that I spotted a Blue Jay in my little tree:
And I never thought I would get such a close shot of a Blue Jay:
I hope he stops back again! I’ve never seen one so close before.
I had all but given up hope on the hummingbirds this spring, but I did see one briefly this afternoon. She didn’t stop and take a drink from the feeder, so tomorrow morning I’ll put fresh syrup in. We’ve had so much big-bird activity at the nearby seed feeder, I’m wondering if the bigger birds are keeping the hummers away?
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
