  7. I know that you will love watching the birds and they love a bird bath. We have so many different birds here that come to the bird bath. I love to hear birds call no matter what the type.

  9. I guess our blackbirds are similar but around my garden they are few and far between Dana. We have aviaries of cockatiels and budgies with little quails on the floor of the cages and they all make such a lovely call. the wild birds here all have their own calls and I can't pick one that does not sound lovely in its own right.
    Thanks Dana.

  12. What beautiful eyes. I love nest shots. Love the colors. Last spring I took lots of nest shots of different species in the yard.

    Like Dana already mentioned our blackbirds are loud. But they serve a purpose. They dine on road kill. Our blue jays are loud and annoying too, though beautiful.

    I don't know why you can't view mine.... no one else has said they're having a problem. Try again and let me know.

  22. Awwww, they are so cute! I also love birdies in the garden. Unfortunately my cat, Casey, loves them too and for different reasons, but I try to place bird baths and feeders strategically to keep the birdies safe. Casey has actually unwittingly saved the lives of several sick birds who he brought home alive and relatively unharmed, so I took them to the local wild bird rescue center where they were treated and released back into the wild :-)

    Thank you for your adorable entry!
