I love herons ... any kind, but have to say that the robin taking a bath is my favorite...love watching them splash water around. They have been know to throw out all the water in my bird bath. They keep me busy adding water on some days! Happy Critter Day!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

You have all the birds we see here up there! Just maybe not at the same time. What a great place for a birder to live , especially one who is retired and can travel to get away from the cold! Beautiful pictures.

Rose said...

As always, a lovely set of photos. I like the Little Blues....

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Eileen; Oh, I smiled with the Peek-a-boo photograph, what a cute photograph :-)
I wish I could see the colorful birds like Robin and Woodpecker. And LOVE the "Great Egret in flight" shot♡♡♡
Wishing you are having a wonderful weekend and Thanks a lot for your sweet comment♪

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Linda said...

Neat pictures! I don't think of robins as river birds but that one looks fearless.

Hannah said...

The wood duck looks so funny and out of place popping up next to the Little Blue Heron, and so comical. I like the downy woodpecker against the sky, too.

Stewart M said...

Very nice herons - but I do like the photo-boombing wood duck.

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Anni said...

Love the little downy. I've had some bird flying over lately that I don't know what it is. I'm thinking it looks like a heron. Hope you're having a great week and thanks for hosting!

Christa atCedarmereFarm said...

Haha, I love the faces on the Heron and the wood duck. They look very cute playing together. (PS, I am sorry I am late in visiting. It has been a crazy week. I am currently in NYC helping one of my daughters get ready for her summer job.)
