Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

KeeWee- I love seeing the Stellar Jay. We don't have them here and it is interesting to see new birds. The other photos are great too.

ps- your word verification doesn't show up when you look at the post inside Blotanical.

You've got a great mix of birds visiting. Wonderful photos of them. I just spotted that last one in my garden last week. Is it an Eastern Towhee?

You got such nice pictures. I've had a towhee in my yard every morning the past week, but I can't get a good picture of him.

Peggy said...

You were able to take such clear photos of your visitors! Most of them are unknown to me especially the Stellar Jay he looks so regal.

Wow, such great captures. Nice job, it's so nice to see such a variety of birds.

Awesome post! I love your pics and commentary! I think that flicker may be the kind of bird I saw in my front yard one day in the fall, and never again. I thought it was a woodpecker of some kind. I'll have to check and see what their territory and migration routes are.

Thanks for visiting my SkyWatch post.

(Word verification is working for me. Or at least, it's there. I haven't typed it yet.)

KeeWee your pictures are fantastic! Love the bird babble! You've got so many neat kinds. So far just robins, my lil chocolate guy and some hummingbirds and they aren't around enough to say they are. Great post - loved it!!!

Kim and Victoria said...

KeeWee, I'm commenting on an older post...re: bird photos...just so you know when you open your comments. They are wonderful photos..and I like your captions underneath them! Now, instead of commenting on every single post before and after that, I must say I've been missing a lot by not visiting more!
I enjoy your trials and tribulations so nicely laid out for us to read! You've worked hard with your seeds, planting outside and in, and so much else! Congrats on such a nice blog, and so much effort...and, a great sense of humor;-)
