Rural birds and scenes

I am linking up with Mosaic Monday  and Our World Tuesday

My post and mosaic includes some rural scenes near my neighborhood and scenes I see on my way to work.

 I am able to see the sun rising above this field on most of the clear mornings.  Most of early morning's I am seeing fog over the fields. I usually get to this same spot everyday at the same time and the sun is in the same place each day.  Must be my timing is right on for seeing the sun rise.


 A Song Sparrow is a commonly heard bird , a resident of Maryland.



My sunrise on the way to work,  Eastern Meadowlark,  local produce stand, red barn, rolls of hay, Song Sparrow.



This is one of the fields I pass on the way to work everyday. A rural scene with the corn fields and rolls of hay.


Sunflowers, Eastern Bluebird, Tree Swallow, a local white barn. The Bluebirds and Swallows are common birds I see perched on the wires about the roads. Once in awhile I will see the Eastern Meadowlark.

Sometimes I catch a bluebird sitting on top of a birdhouse. It is nice to see homeowners and farmers putting up the bluebird houses.


Everyone likes to stop here for their produce, veggies and flowers.



To see more wonderful mosaics and photos check out : Mary's Mosaic Monday and Our World Tuesday.  Thanks to our host Mary and to the group at Our World: Arija, Gattina, Lady Fi, Sandy and Sylvia.
I wish everyone a safe and happy week ahead.

Wow-that red barn must be huge....how beautiful. You get to see a lot out there in the early morning. I love to catch the sunrise too. I don't believe I've ever missed one (well, except cloudy days of course!)

You live in a picturesque area, The big red barn is a beauty and the bluebirds are so pretty. Does the sun rise late or are you up extremely early? I'm still in bed when the sun rises.

Lovely photos as usual! It is always so ineresting to compare your birds to ours. Yours are more colourful! The bluebird looks really lovely.

Caroline Gill said...

What beautiful mosaics, Eileen. I wonder exactly what it is about mosaics that make photos look so particularly good on blogs! I would love to see a bluebird ...

ShySongbird said...

Those Bluebirds are so pretty Eileen, I wish we had them here. I love the colourful Sunflowers too, we do have those here :-)

I also loved seeing the Hummingbirds on an earlier post. Out of all the birds in the world I think those are the ones I would most like to see in the UK!
