Stewart M is our host for Wild Bird Wednesday. He is such a cheery fellow that lives in Australia. Please, click here to see all the beautiful birds for all over this wonderful world.
Here are a few of the birds we observed while sitting on our son’s patio. It over looks a small retention pond. The cloudy conditions and intermittent rain made the camerawork a little beyond my skills.
I liked the lines of this swallow in flight.
A redwing black bird was attempting to be king of the hill.
A Northern Mockingbird doing a little bug hunting.
Now I need some help with these two. I am stumped.
This bird is about the size of a sparrow.
The following two are the second bird in two different views. This bird was as large as the mockingbird in length. Apologies for the poor quality.
Thanks for the visits and happy birding.
Its is another Monday. Staying inside today as there are heavy rains and bad weather. Sharing a few snaps between rain showers.

While grandpuppy sitting this little beauty I noticed quintessential spring activities on a nearby lavender plant. What says spring more than that.
And there is some fence in the background so will link to Thursday Good Fences.
And overhead were the glorious clouds bringing the much needed rains to drought stricken areas of Texas and Oklahoma. So here is the post for Skywatch Friday, May 22.

Having to dig back into archives for this weeks contribution. It was two years ago this beauty showed outside our window. Such a surprise after 20 years to see this Oriole posing just outside.

Wild Bird Wednesday 146
Thanks to Stewart M for hosting.
Yesterday was a fine day for this mom. Our son treated us to brunch and a play. The play was a children’s theater group putting on ‘Legally Blonde”. Our grandson played Warner Hunnington III. Our grandson is nine so this was great fun for this grandma! In addition, the two older brothers presented me with a soccer charm for my bracelet. I wore a silly Mom/Grandma grin all day! And it lingers still this morning.
When do freckles not make one smile? ; ) Especially with Dorito’s dust, an after race winning smile, and doing a great drum performance smile!
