it's these vibrant and beautiful Yellow- headed Blackbirds. They come to visit every year. These are the males. The females are plain black and smaller and show up two weeks earlier than the males.
They fill the pine tree above my shop and I can hear their chatter and singing.....
(click on photos for a better view)
bringing much cheer and beauty to the whole area.
Even the bare mesquite tree at this time of year,
has a touch of beauty as they sit and chatter away in it's barely budding branches.
The feeder usually looks like this...............
but now looks like this. They are a hungry bunch to feed.
It's just one of those things in life..........that I call "God's present for the day" that makes me grateful and thankful for where I live .
They are so beautiful to watch............
Salem thinks so.............
he is mesmerized by them............
He can't seem to be quick enough to gets his paws on one yet..
So he just lies on the porch..........wishfully thinking about them.
When he naps, his mouth quivers and his tail thumps as he dreams of catching his prize.
How about you?
Along with the Easter Bunny, what has shown up at your bird feeder?
Do you have these kinds of birds in your tree?
What is the common bird of your area?
I would love to hear!
