OK...on to the farm. I know that I've shown pictures of them before, but I really like watching the birds at the farm...and I like trying to capture them in photos. So...here are a bunch of bird pictures....scroll through them fast if you're bored. It's OK....isn't it?
These are gold finches...next summer they will be a bright lemon yellow. Bet you can't wait for pictures of that! Can you?
If you hear a bird singing Chick-a-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee....that would be the Chickadee. Bet you didn't know I was that smart did you?
It was pretty cold the day these were taken...I was worried about their cute little feet. Couldn't they stick to the aluminum cable? Well couldn't they?
This one is a nuthatch. I like them because they are upside down a lot. Sort of like my thinking...upside down, all mixed up.
This one is a female Downy Woodpecker. I get them mixed up with Hairy Woodpeckers sometimes...Hairy is bigger and has a bigger beak. Did you know that?
This is a red bellied woodpecker. Sometimes I get him mixed up with a Flicker. I get mixed up a lot.
There are a couple of bird brains that I like at the farm too. Skylar, he's sort of ornery and kind of aloof sometimes. He's my favorite. I suppose that says something about me that I don't want to know.
And then there is Czar. He's a character. He's very curious. When we're out riding he'd rather spend his time looking around than walking. He decided to check out my gloves this day.
Ummm.....tasty. He liked them....until I told him that they were made out of horse hide and that he'd better watch it. I'm kind of ornery like that other guy. Hmm.
And this is Murphy. He spends a lot of time wondering why no one is petting him every minute. Maybe if those darned birds and horses and people weren't around he'd get some attention...maybe.
