A Lovely Day for Birds

The weather is improving...more comfortable
temperatures and lower humidity..think we
all appreciate this, including the birds.

This robin is hiding in the wisteria vines,
a wonderful shady spot and out of sight.

The hummingbird made many visits to the
lilies and honeysuckle today... I am always
so happy to see her!

Magical Hummingbird

Early Friday evening I was thinking
that I needed to see the hummingbird...
had been a while since we saw each other!
I went to the spot where I had seen them
last September...heard the humming sound
and there it was!

The Baby Doves

This morning I looked up into the arbor covered
with vines and hidden just about the middle post
are the baby doves.

You can barely seen the 2nd dove but it is there...
if you look closely at the photo above you might
notice just the eye located above middle of the first dove.

They are so beautiful!

Great Hill Breeze

On Sunday we found a spot with a bit of a breeze and
enjoyed watching the cormorants lined up on the rocks
as terns fished in the sea!

Summer Afternoon

This is the first afternoon in days that Ellie May
has been out on the porch...
the weather has been too hot and humid for her
but today felt a little bit better.
