Color, Color Everywhere….


I live in the desert.  You all know that….everything alive seems to be brown…no color to the birds, bunnies, whatever!

So when I got to Wisconsin and my cousin Linda took these photos so I could keep the color, I was so thankful! 

A lot of you in the Midwest and East know these birds…I don’t have any of them where I live….

Baltimore Orioles…female first then the beautiful male!

These photos have NOT been retouched!  These birds are just awesome!

They also have a lot of these finches….we didn’t get any photos, but this is exactly what they look like….



Also, lots and lots of FAT Robins….

So much color and different species than I get to see here in my part of Arizona. 

What kind of birds visit you and your place this time of year?

Such beautiful photos! I love watching the birds, we get all those kinds and one of my favorites has to be the cardinal, which is our state bird (Indiana) :) Enjoy your lovely pics! Have a wonderful weekend!! xo Holly

Our cats love watching our birds. Glad you had a wonderful trip and were able to enjoy some beautiful color and sweet friends!

Oh what beautiful photos! We have bluejays here in the mountains above the desert. And lots of hummingbirds below, but to see a robin, or a fully yellow bird would be wonderful!

What gorgeous colors on those birds.

We have a sweet chorus daily in our trees, but none of the birds is colorful.

Such beautiful birds! We have mostly Cardinals year round - especially pretty in the wintertime. We see the Indigo and Painted Buntings during their migration - and always wish they'd stay! Then there are lots of others - owls, wrens, doves, etc. Our cats love birdwatching!

Here in Maine we get chickadees, cardinals, robins, woodpeckers, blue jays, etc. etc. The chickadees are my favorite! They are such beautiful little birds.

I'm jealous of the Indigo Buntings - we don't have them here in MA, but about 20 years ago there was one in my yard just "passing through"!
