It has been cool lately seeing all the action at the birdhouses and seeing the juvies in my yard. Yesterday evening I was out in my yard checking on my plants when three juvie Mockingbirds landed on my fence.  I was able to snap a few photos before they flew off into the treetops.

So, I continued my walk around the yard when this crazy house wren looked at me like I was it's enemy. It started flying around me acting crazy. Finally it went back into it's birdhouse. I'm sure this is the same wren I have seen my bluebirds dive bombing.

Poppa Blue is very protective of his mate and feeders. I have seen him chasing squirrels, chipmunks and other birds from my feeders and deck.



This is my post for The Friday Ark , thanks for stopping by.

  9. What a lovely backyard you have Eileen! Good for Papa Bluebird taking care of things like he is supposed to do. Silly wren!

    Our mockingbirds here have stopped waking us up so early; I guess they're all settled in with their families by now.

  13. You have captured some lovely photos of your backyard birds Eileen. I have never seen a bluebird other than in photos and on TV, and we used to have a mockingbird visit but not any more.

    If you have time to stop by, my Camera Critter post is right here.

    Enjoy your weekend!

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
Have a great day, Eileen
