Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Bird watching in the rain

 Today was a rainy day, a stay in kind of a day. You know we have these down days to recoup for upcoming busy dry days, right? I was reading and looked outside at the bird feeder to see this "Spotted Towhee and shortly after a "Yellow headed Black bir" came for a few seeds. It is amazing how all these birds gather to eat from our feeders. Sparrows of several breeds, Flickers, Doves, & Quail and I saw a yellow belly sap sucker the other day, but couldn't get a snapshot of him fast enough. We have also the Red wing blackbirds and tri colored Black birds.. that hang out around the pond in the cat tails.. Fun to watch especially on a rainy day. I keep my eyes open for the baby quail hoping they show up soon.
