Sunny Winter Days and a Bluebird for Robyn

Yesterday we had a sunny winter day. In honor of such lovely weather, a bird convention was called. The venue? My backyard apparently. I had quite a day photographing bluebirds, cardinals, juncos, and wrens.

I mentioned my excitement on Facebook and the talented Robyn in Tuscany mentioned that she had never seen one...so here's what you are missing Robyn.

Oh Rose, that is beautiful. Watch out I don't land on your doorstep. It looks like bird heaven. :)

Anytime Robyn. We have alot of trees and mild weather, so we are definitely bird friendly. :-)

Rose, I get many birds at my feeder too, but never any as colorful as this. I'd say "Enjoy" but somehow I know you are. :) Have a great weekend!

The bluebird, bluejay and cardinal are the most colorful. And honestly, they are most colorful in the winter when everything else is gray. Oh, wait, there is also the goldfinch - a yellow bird - caught a few of those for the first time the other day. I am enjoying this time, I really am.

Have a good weekend everyone and thanks for leaving your comments!
