My Favourite Bird and Earth Day

Carolina Wren
 
The birds seem to love the blue feeding dish in the cedar tree.
Especially when it snows...and it was snowing last week at this time (April 15).
 
 
Five days later (April 20), it was warm enough to enjoy the beach on Lake Huron.
A little shell heart for Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day!

What a cute little bird. Fantastic photos!

Oh, yes! I would pick that feeder, too! Love the color! And your birds are always so beautiful -- as are your captures, Karen!! They never cease to amaze me, it's like holding the bird in my own hand for a the moment! Superb! Hope your week is off to a great start!! Enjoy!

Wow, Karen, I am amazed that a Carolina Wren survived the winter we just had, but I am so happy that it did. I saw two of them on a trail here in Waterloo last year, but so far nothing this year.

Great shots of the wren. They are a favorite of mine too.

I love the blue feeding dish too! Isn't this weather crazy? Let's hope there is no more snow until next winter. Love the heart shell and quote.

That stripe above it's eye makes it look really special. From Findlay

April 15th and still snowing? My commiserations Karen, but then I'm guessing that you are accustomed to the winters so far north? Interesting about the blue dish. Perhaps the blue shades reinforce the idea to birds that there is water to bathe in or drink? It is a lovely shot though.

What a lovely Wren, she looks sweet sitting in the pretty blue dish. Darling Shell heart too. Enjoyed your post very much.

How lovely she looks in her blue dish (or seat, whatever she makes it!). So glad you have some Spring.

Wonderful series Karen. I am especially drawn to that little shell heart… the birds are beautiful too, of course.

My favorite little guy. They come to the feeder when I am sitting on my bench five feet away. Great shots and I love the shell heart.

Gunilla Bäck said...

A sweet little bird. I love the shell heart.

Willow said...

I do adore the little wrens. We are lucky they love nesting in the little bird houses we have all over the farm.

Pat said...

I love wrens too. The little shell heart image is lovely.

Rambling Woods said...

Awwwww... how sweet. It is funny how birds love particular feeders. Sometimes the doves here just sit in the tray feeders and doze... Michelle

Me said...

Beautiful shots of our little Pip. Sure do miss that little guy. The heart shell is a great capture.
