Doing some gardening yesterday and Hubby starts to hack away at a bush he thought was too big...Noooooo! That is the one that attracts the most hummingbirds! He left it alone. :)

Once their mating season is over, you see swallows beginning to assemble, getting together on overhead cables, hanging out, and strengthening their social bonds before their migration journeys begin again. Saw this beautiful bunch of them today and my heart fair burst with the joy of it. ❤️

The #Grackles are also still around, and some are still feeding babies, but molting has also begun, giving some of them the best and most dramatic looks. As if they couldn’t already do that with their plumage fully intact!⁠

A molting Grackle all puffed up looking angrily at the food bowl. It is kind of adorable.

A younger Grackle looking straight into the camera. The eyes look like they are side-by-side, which gives the bird a goofy look.

Grauwe Klauwier - Red-backed Shrike

Last night I returned to the spot where I had seen the Red-backed Shrike earlier this week. In the last sunlight, I witnessed a juvenile feeding. What a lucky moment!

AAAS: "The two main reasons birds get 'divorced'." The overwhelming majority of bird species honor a commitment to a single mate. But “divorce” happens when one individual mates with a new partner while its companion from the past breeding season is still alive. "Two main factors are responsible, according to a study published this week in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: male promiscuity and migration distance.' Genetically, it may be a rewarding evolutionary strategy for males to court multiple bird bachelorettes + spread their genes to as many offspring as feasible. "The same doesn’t go for females, they say, likely because the expensive cost of egg production means females prefer quality mates over quantity." A longer migration distance also increases the possibility that birds might have difficulty finding their true loves once they arrive at their breeding grounds. If they fail, then many birds will resort to seeking out a rebound relationship instead. In the photo is a mated pair of Grey Herons (Ardea cinerea), a wading bird of the heron family Ardeidae, native throughout temperate Europe and Asia and also parts of Africa. I'm not even going to tip my toe into drawing comparisons with mammals such as humans.   #strategy   #birdlovers   #commitment

Fight!

Here are some laughing gulls (leucophaeus atricilla) that were apparently fighting over the street in Galveston, Texas.

Did you know that in North America alone there are over 40 species of sparrows? Who knew? (Well, I did because I just looked it up.) Here we have a pair of chipping #sparrows enjoying some cherry blossoms. (Quilted effects added to the art...not an actual #quilt)

Something from this morning.

I’m downloading software on to my new PC. So I can’t use it for posting photos this morning. I mostly just boosted some old stuff. But here’s a Carolina Chickadee - taken just a few minutes ago and posted from my iPhone.

In this captivating close-up photo, a great grey owl is captured in a moment of repose, with its mouth wide open in a yawn and its wings softly draped at its sides. The intricate details of the bird's stunning plumage are on full display, with soft grey and white feathers creating a striking contrast against the owl's darker, piercing eyes that appear to be staring straight into the camera lens. The image conveys a sense of tranquility and relaxation, with the owl appearing almost meditative in its stillness. Despite the lack of stretched-out wings, the photo showcases the majesty and grace of this impressive bird, and provides a glimpse into the unique behaviors and characteristics of this incredible species.

A side portrait of a Great Blue Heron that was cruising the coastline at the beach.  It is a stately heron with its subtle blue-gray plumage, a long yellow-orange bill, bright yellow eye and a long neck that it has tucked into a "S" shape.  It also has a black crown and for some reason this one's black plumes are standing upward like a spike!

When there is little activity, even the simplest little things can become interesting. Like the funky colorings of House Finches. Their color is determined by what they eat, and we have all kinds of berries around, red but also orange. These two looked quite cool.
