BIRDS AND SQUIRRELS – Marilyn Armstrong

The birds are eating like there's no tomorrow. I actually spotted a fat woodpecker, one of the big Red-bellied Woodpeckers. I don't think I've ever seen a fat woodpecker. But this one was very round ... and very big, too. Today, while it isn't sunny, it is warm. 70 degrees and going up. I don't … Continue reading BIRDS AND SQUIRRELS – Marilyn Armstrong

UP IN THE AIR, JUNIOR BIRDMAN: DAY 4 – Marilyn Armstrong

UP IN THE AIR, JUNIOR BIRDMAN It's such a little airplane and it's 75-years old, too. But it flies. So high it disappeared into the clouds. For an hour, all we could hear was the occasional buzz of the engine. We had hoped to catch a ride, but eventually, we couldn't even hear it, much … Continue reading UP IN THE AIR, JUNIOR BIRDMAN: DAY 4 – Marilyn Armstrong

BIRDS UP TOP – DAY 3 – Marilyn Armstrong

ON TOP WITH WINGS  Whose on top? I think all the birds are on top! If you ask the birds in this picture, I'm pretty sure the Goldfinch win. The Goldfinches are all over the place and they always win. I think it is because they are so brilliantly golden. Even on these cold, gray, … Continue reading BIRDS UP TOP – DAY 3 – Marilyn Armstrong

A BEAUTIFUL DAY FOR THE GOLDFINCH – Marilyn Armstrong

This was the first sunny day in a couple of weeks. It rained yesterday and will probably rain tomorrow, but for at least portions of today, there was sunshine and puffy white clouds. I haven't been taking many pictures. Maybe it was the damp cold and the endless rain and dark gray skies. A pair … Continue reading A BEAUTIFUL DAY FOR THE GOLDFINCH – Marilyn Armstrong

BLACK & WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – BIRDS! By Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Birds I took so many bird pictures this month, I have a whole new set of pictures on the chip in one of my camera that I'm leaving there until I at least use a few more of the ones I've already taken. I spent some extra time trying to … Continue reading BLACK & WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – BIRDS! By Marilyn Armstrong

A BEAUTIFUL DAY TO BE ISOLATED – Marilyn Armstrong

Something to Pass the Time While in Isolation Anyone want to sing along? Last night, they really started to clamp down. Apparently warning people wasn't doing the job. There are a lot of awfully selfish people. I'm sure that in the time of the Black Plague, these are the people who went dancing in the streets, … Continue reading A BEAUTIFUL DAY TO BE ISOLATED – Marilyn Armstrong

A GOOD DAY FOR GOLDFINCH – Marilyn Armstrong

Flying around and teasing each other. It's both feeding and playtime. They like flying at each other and getting another bird to leave that perch. Even when there are plenty of perches. I think it's a bird game similar to "king of the hill." Our dogs play king of the hill. I've seen squirrels play … Continue reading A GOOD DAY FOR GOLDFINCH – Marilyn Armstrong
