Skywatch>>backyard

It is time to link up with one of my favorites memes Skywatch Friday and  NF Winged.  My entry this week is some of the skies above my yard and a few birds for NF Winged.



I enjoy watching the sky, a simple pleasure everyone can enjoy!







The Black Throated Green Warbler is still hanging around my yard. I guess it wants a full belly before it heads south.


I love to look up and see these beautiful white puffy clouds.



The Mourning Doves are a common visitor to my yard, on this day I had ten or more hanging around my deck and feeders.



Looking west after the sun had set, there were a few clouds left that turned a pretty pink.


To see more beautiful photos and pretty skies please visit Skywatch Friday
and NF Winged

Thanks to Sylvia and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday! Thanks to Monica the host of NF Winged. Also, thank you for stopping by to see my post. I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.

All those doves....I bet early in the morning when they visit your feeders, they're mighty pretty...to watch and hear!!

Sorry, I'm a bit late in visiting, but, have had a couple of days where the computer is not very cooperative!!

Still awesome:) Grosbeaks, warblers.....you are really lucky. It means you're doing something right in your yard. If I ever have an owl come visit, I'll smile because I'll have created a sanctuary at last. I have the hummingbirds. But a warbler......

As for the Mourning Doves, well they're like neighbors. All over:)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful dreamy skies -- and it looks like the warbler has lots of berries left to eat before he flies away.

Lovely skies Eileen!
This is the time I love the most. The days with blue skies and puffy white clouds and nice crisp air.
Always a treat to see your feathered friends.
Have a great upcoming weekend!

Those skies look a little crisper than mine!

Nice blues.

I don't mind it don't see another sky like that for a while either!

Both of the warblers were well-camouflaged that I almost missed them. Have a good Sunday!

So many birds around, I wonder if they chirp together, they would create a great harmony!
