SWF>>>>>Another Backyard Sunset

I am showing off my skies for Skywatch Friday 

These shots were actually from last month and I never got around to posting them on skywatch. This backyard sunset was one of my favorites. I love the colors of the clouds and the cloud formations.










This shot is a little dark but the White Throat Sparrows usually show up early in the morning and come back in the evening just like my Cardinals. They are sweet looking birds. And one of my favorite winter birds.

I hope you enjoyed my backyard sunset and to see more beautiful skies please visit Skywatch Friday.

Thanks to the hosting group of Sylvia, Sandy and Wren. I hope everyone is having a great week and I wish all a very happy weekend.  Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate the visits.

  5. I love the peachish pink rays across the sky beautiful. There are so many sparrows out there. That should have its own chapter in the birding book. The White Crowned Sparrow, Vesper Sparrow, Black Throated Sparrow....too many to keep track of but all of them so very cool!

  8. I am an early riser, and I could see the light as the sun rises! But one thing good about where you are, you could hear the birds chirping as you start the day, with a wonderful sunrise!

    What a nice welcome greeting!

    Have a great weekend Eileen!

  40. beautiful set of backyard sunsets, sometimes, all we need to do is step out of our house or look at our window to watch one of the greatest shows in Earth such as this one.

  41. Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. One of the things I like about blogs is the way it makes the world so much smaller. I can sit in my armchair here in the UK and see the lovely things you've seen so many miles away and almost feel like I'm there!

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
