I was initially going to call this post "favourites of mine", but I soon realized that all the animals or birds that I see become favourites of mine. I suppose I glory in nature. I was also going to call it " Sparrows of the Vermilon", but I hold that one until the wild sunflowers, smaller than the domestic variety, in my garden go to seed. They're growing now and will soon be ready. When they're ready, I bait the whole area with seeds and see what shows up. Last year I got a great collection of sparrows, and I hope it works again this year. So that explains my current title.
Having said that here is a selection of sparrows.
|Song Sparrow Signing his Heart Out.|
The Dark-eyed Junco should be with the sparrows as he is actually a sparrow. They've left me now and moved further north to the boreal forest.
As I said earlier I have seen more Yellow-rumped Warblers this year, and this fellow is perservering in a wind storm, singing nevertheless.
|Male Purple Finch.|
I never tire of the Robin who wakes Boom & I in the morning. I think this fellow looks especially majestic.
Certainly this Grackle looks slightly mad.
The Buffleheads below are new to me. They're named "Bufflehead" Because the male's head is reminiscent of a buffalo head.
I put this post together in the new dashboard format that Blogger/Google is so proud of. It then disappears and I have to go to the old format, post a blank, and call up this post and delete the blank. Isn't Google a marvel??
