I saw the brown thrasher appear this morning when I was gardening. We are just at the edge of their range here.

Have not seen the blue birds today, just the tree swallows at the boxes.
Move'n on.

Well, I had an afternoon nap after all the gardening got done for this week. Went out on the porch and no sooner than it took to sit on my rocking chair I first heard then saw the pair of blue birds return. :)

Went out with Taylor after school and found this little guy. 

 

Fantails are hyperactive little birds, constantly chasing insects on the wing, and they never sit still long enough to get a good photo.  :D

They are normally grey and black, a pure White one is very unusual (I've never seen one before). It's not albino as it's eyes and beak are black.

   Neat find Ian. He sounds kind of like our kingfishers in respect to hard to get him to sit long enough for a picture. Several years ago a neighbor saw us in our local hardware store and got excited when he remembered my wife was a photographer. He had a white robin hanging out at his place and he told us and asked her to take his picture. We stopped by several times and she got pictures of him. The best was him in a white barked sycamore, with a wild grapevine with yellow Fall leaves and eating purple grapes. She printed our neighbor an 8X10 photo and he liked it better than gold I believe. For months after that we'd run into people telling us about David coming by showing off his picture. The white robin came back for about 2-3 more years which amazed me that he even lived that long.

Nice photos of the white birds. Never see white birds here, except maybe see a pigeon that may be nearly all white.

   A year or so after we moved here we had a couple of white phase wild turkeys that showed up for a couple of years. I always wondered if a domestic turkey had gotten loose and interbred with the wild stock. The robin amazed me because he came back fro several years. I had a white baby coon born and raised till nearly grown 2 years ago before I quite seeing him. I have lots of pictures of him that season as he hung around my deer feeder and finally started coming here to the house. He was a true albino while the turkeys and robin above are just a white phase. Always neat to see something unusual like that though.

Baltimore orioles are back!! Male and female. They are feeding on Dollar General grape jelly. I won't feed them the jelly/jam Brenda makes.  ;D
I would suspect I need to put the other feeder out too. Last year we had at least a couple pair. For all I know we could of had 6 pairs. Hard to tell, but we only would see 2 males at a time and 2 females too. So we had at least 2 pair.

Haven't seen them here for years. But I did here a rose breast grosbeak at the woodlot on the weekend. First time I ever saw one was up there, then seen them around the house.

I talked to my sister this morning and she told me she checked one of her Blue bird nest and there were three but two of them were dead and the live one was wet so with our four inches of rain must of drown the two and not sure if the mother bird will return or not . But sad you just wonder how many baby's survive .

We have lots of Bluebirds, Tree Swallows, Hummingbirds, and Orioles!

Haven't seen the Tufted Titmouse in over a week!

Tomorrow I have to get to DG and get some more of their cheap grape jelly!

I'd say we have about 8 tree swallows here sitting on the wires. I think there are also some barn swallows around, that just arrived this week. We've never had lots of blue birds, in fact never had any at all here until recent. About 80 miles north of here in Nictau and the neighboring park of mount Carleton, they recorded blue birds years ago and in recent years, not a one. We are at the fringe here of a lot of stuff including tolerant hardwoods and butternut.
Move'n on.
