I really should be blogging about my garden right now, especially since things are really starting to pop. But I haven't had a chance to take any photos. (Or read any other garden blogs for that matter!) However, a couple of weeks ago I took some photos of some of the birds that are migrating through my garden. Here are photos of two of my faves. The first shows an Indigo Bunting on the left and mostly Pine Siskins on the right. The fat bird above the seed cake is a female Rose-breasted Grosbeak.
In this next photo are a male and female pair of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks (the female is sitting at the very top). Interestingly, the male let the female eat all she wanted on the seed cake before he partook.
I do hope they all stick around for this week when my friend from Austin is visiting. She's an avid birder (in fact, we first took birding classes together from Ed Kutac, eminent Texas birding authority, many moons ago!).
