SWF>>>Bird sounds and the sunset

For my Skywatch Friday I have some shots of the sky from my backyard and a video including the sky and a bird sound I am not too sure of? I could help with the id on the sound. I know there are some experts out there.



These photos are in order as I took them. I did take shots of the sky looking west and the little pufft clouds were right above my head. I think it was a cool looking sky.













I hope you enjoy my skies as much as I did and to see more beautiful skies
please visit Skywatch Friday. Thanks to the hosting group of Sylvia, Sandy and Wren.

Also thanks for stopping by to see my skies. Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Birding to all my birding friends.

  1. LOL-I'm going to assume that was the Mister opening and closing the door? I have YET to shoot a video where my dear one doesn't talk, belch, start a chainsaw, you name it!
    Don't know what the bird was, but the crickets were sure relaxing to listen to!
    Have a great weekend, Eileen!

    Oh, and the photos were lovely!

  3. That's a good idea to take a video of your surroundings! Your skies are very beautiful and peaceful. I am sorry that I cannot tell what kind of bird this is. I am not good at bird sounds, though I like them very much.

  4. Your backyard is really chirpy. I think there are also insects as part of the orchestra. The scattered cloud shot that looks like polka dots is my favourite.

    Did you notice 2 grasshoppers in the that Hopper shot? I wonder why they must share their meal when there are lots to munch from.

  14. So, how many shots did you really take of this sky?? (if it were me, it would be close to the hundreds, I just wouldn't be able to stop myself!)
    I think I love #4 the best.

  21. Hi Eileen, Very nice series! I like that puff-ball polkadot sky picture a lot! Have a great day tomorrow!

  22. I am not familiar with bird sounds, but it seems (to me) they are coming from small birds.

    You caught some pretty good skies. Nice series of shots!

  23. I love those straight lines blending on the cotton ball-like clouds.

    Skywatch at my page. Have a nice weekend.

  24. The skies are real beautiful. My cat had a suspicious look when I played the video and she heard the birds, lol !

  25. I like photo number 5 too, we had a lot of that kind of cloud last week, is it a cropped and zoomed version of photo's 3 or 4, they look like Cirrocumulus.
    The larger 'puffy' cloudlets, Altocumulus, at a lower altitude are shaded on the side away from the Sun, Cirrocumulus being much higher, are not shaded and look more like rice grains.
    Lovely photo's, if you are anything like me, you most likely take a lot more photo's than you intended, I get carried away every almost time.

  26. Hi there - no help on the bird song - sorry, wrong part of the world!

    Those puffy little clouds are rather splendid. I don’t think I've seen them like that before.

  38. Your skies are gorgeous. It is always interesting to watch the sky change. I love those little puffy clouds.

    I have no idea on the bird sound but the closing door (hubby sounds) are common on my videos too.

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!
