Serene Scenery Sunday - This is For The Birds!

Tail wags, dear readers. Stormy here, with Serene Scenery Sunday. Amber helped me a bit with the title; today's post is all about the birds we've seen out on our walks lately! I have a lot of photos to show you, so let's get started!

On a recent walk up by our water tower, we had a red-tailed hawk circling us, and sort of tagging along with us on our walk. Here he is:

Hey, what's that on the wire out in front of him?

Is it just me, or is he using a teleprompter? Ha roo roo...

Excuse me?

OK, maybe joking with a large, predatory bird isn't a great idea. Moving right along...

On Ammy's birthday, we had birds following us on our walk, too. This time, it was dear little bluebirds!

Isn't this little guy sweet? He was posing for Mom!

Me? I liked this next guy.

Clearly, he took my Cooperating for Photos 1 class - and did very well!

Here are Mr. and Mrs. Bluebird hanging out together:

Very sweet, aren't they? Or as Ammy said, very "tweet". Ha roo roo roo, oh, that Yammer!

Here's another female:

She's lovely, isn't she? Having a serene moment, as I hope all of you are!

This bird found some cool balls to play with:

Perhaps he's a ... yes, I'll say it, Am ... a LabraBird! Ha roo roo roo!

OK, enough of that. Here's a collage of some of the other shots Mom took:

We love seeing all the birds around us as we take our walks; they make Mom smile and wash away her worries. We hope you enjoyed them, too.

Thanks for joining us for Serene Scenery Sunday!

Tail wags,

  11. Beautiful bird pictures Stormy! It's nice that they follow along on your walks with you. They are a lot prettier to look at and much more serene than the deers that are on the walks with me.

  17. I think you're right that the first bird was giving a speech with the teleprompter. That bluebird with all the balls reminds me of Scampi and his tennis ball collection!

  18. Good pictures Stormy!!! I love the birds and especially the blue birds. Don't mess with the Hawk! You never know what they just might do! You guys really have really pretty birds. All we see this time of the year are blackbirds and pigeons. Thanks for the tour with the birds..it is very serene!!! Lots of love, Debbie and Hollydog

  26. That Red tailed hawk with the telpromter must be a Democrat running for President, if he was a Republican he'd just write on his talons. Our GOM likes this bluebird picture best of all:
