Sometimes, we see Kingbirds. Here is an Eastern Kingbird:
And here is a Western Kingbird:
Sometimes we even see Red-Winged Blackbirds! We heard this male singing and singing to his mate:

If you'd like to see more shots of the Peonies, please visit our Garden 2014 album at this link.

Have a wonderful Sunday - and remember to enjoy the serenity all around you!
