I can just hear the chirps of these cute little birds in the meadow grasses. Also, is that a black swan?? Beautiful bird and such a great place to glide around. By the way, if you stop by my blog, at the bottom where it says posted by jeanne... go just to the right and click and the comment section will
"appear". Sorry about the inconvenience, but I have no idea how to "fix this". Hope your week has been lovely!

I just love you bird photos Carole! I think they like posing for you.
You asked if I feed my roses. No, I don't do anything with them. I think the wet spring really helped them this year. I do bring a few in the house.

I love the little Cisticola/Wren "Party for Four" happening. It looks like a nice location for Crakes and other unusual waterbirds also!

My favorite is the birds in the grasses. Not only are the birds so awesome, I'm just amazed the grass remains upright! The sun shining on/through the grass makes the photo all the more lovely and surprising!
