Splash 'n Slide (Camera Critters)


So, do we splash or do we slide?

These bluebirds gathered at the birdbath one cold morning last week to find fresh water added to the ice. It seems they are trying to decide whether to take an icy bath or just go for a slide! Thanks to Elaine Stewart for sending me this photo. She keeps her camera handy for the flocks that love her yard.

Beautiful! We have Bluebirds but they don't eat at the feeders. I need to get some worms or bugs to feed them!

I dream of birds of such color ever coming to my yard. We specialize in shades of brown birds, mainly.

You cannot imagine what I would give to have this scene in my backyard. I have yet to attract a single bluebird. Such a beautiful picture.

I have two new blogs to show you:

I get bluebirds in my yard sometimes. But they will never sit still enough for me to take photos!
